Sayonara Wild Hearts releases next week

Sayonara Wild Hearts looks like a candy-colored rhythm action dream and it’s out for the Switch, PS4 and Apple Arcade next week.



Sayonara Wild Hearts

Say hello to Sayonara Wild Hearts.

The rhythm action game will come to Switch, PS4 and the fledgeling Apple Arcade on September 19. Billed in its launch trailer as “a pop album video game,” the rhythm game is the latest from Simogo, developers of Year Walk and Device 6.

Published by Annapurna Interactive and developed by Simogo, Sayonara Wild Hearts is described as “a dreamy arcade game about riding motorcycles, skateboarding, dance battling, shooting lasers, wielding swords, and breaking hearts at 200 mph”.


With the Apple Arcade gearing up for a September 19 launch, and Sayonara Wild Hearts advertised prominently as one of its more than 100 launch games, its September 19 release date was basically a foregone conclusion.

Still, it’s nice to know that, within a week, we’ll be able to play this candy-coloured take on Thumper.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
