The minimalist mudslinging mountain bike game, Lonely Mountains Downhill, comes to Nintendo Switch next month.

Developed by Megagon Industries and published by Thunderful, Lonely Mountains Downhill is a low-poly mountain biking experience. And we choose that word, experience, carefully. While there are timings and checkpoints and all the other stuff you’ll usually see in a “racing” game of sorts, Lonely Mountains Downhill has more to offer than just racing.

It can be a high-octane surge of adrenaline, one of skinned knees and bent bike frames. It can be a serene, almost-zenlike stroll through a minimalist environment. Sometimes it even feels like a puzzle game, trying to slot routes and techniques together to maximum effect. But Lonely Mountains Downhill is always an experience.

And it is an experience that will fit beautifully on the Nintendo Switch. That’s a sentiment that was shared by fans of the game – Switch port begging is still rife – and the developer and publisher of Lonely Mountains Downhill agreed.

“Since we announced the game for the first time people have asked us for a Nintendo Switch version. So, we’re really happy that together with Thunderful and Retroid Interactive we can finally give them the opportunity to ride the Lonely Mountains on the go.” – Jan & Daniel from Megagon Industries

Lonely Mountains Downhill releases on Nintendo Switch on May 7, 2020. If we’re ever allowed to go outside again, it’ll be lovely to play this one halfway up a mountain somewhere. We can dream.
