Deemo, the music rhythm game from PM Studios, is getting a Nintendo Switch physical release, and support for Nintendo Labo.
Get ready to tinkle the ivories, or their cardboard equivalents, with a new update for Deemo on Nintendo Switch.
PM Studios and Acttil are also bringing the game to retail on January 29, 2019. Support for the Nintendo Labo piano – which is available as part of the Toy-Con Variety Kit – will be added to selected songs.
Deemo is one of those rare games that has made the journey from mobile to store shelves. It was originally released on iOS and Android – way back in 2013 – before being ported to PlayStation Vita in 2015, and the Nintendo Switch last year. Initially only available via digital stores, the game is now completing the road to respectability with its physical release.
Deemo is an interesting game that combines piano-based gameplay, over 250 songs from a variety of genres, and a narrative that explores life, loss, and childhood. It’s an elegiac, and often enchanting experience, kind of like Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, but without the giggles.
Deemo is available now on the Nintendo eShop, priced at $29.00/£26.09. A free demo is also available, and well worth a look.
