In a significant update for gaming enthusiasts and fans of magical narratives, The Night of the Rabbit is now available on Nintendo Switch. This launch brings the enchanting tale of young Jerry and his adventures in the mystical realm of Mousewood to a portable format, allowing players to explore its wonders at home or on the go. The game was first released on PC in 2013.

Lose yourself in a tale of magic and wonder, where anything is possible and nothing is quite as it seems. Join young Jerry on a captivating journey to the wondrous realm of Mousewood, a land where critters can speak and mysteries abound. It is here that Jerry’s dream of becoming a magician is realised, though a haunting, sinister force casts a long shadow over the forest.

Mousewood’s residents are lured by an offer they can’t refuse–tickets to the greatest magic show the world has ever seen–but this comes at a grave cost. As the dangers unfold, they have only Jerry to turn to. In an adventure filled with laughter and tears, joy and fear, the young protagonist faces the ultimate trial, leaving behind the world he once knew, along with his own childhood.

Developed by Matthias Kempke, who believes that “games design is all about creating new worlds to be explored by players,” The Night of the Rabbit is a story-driven exploration/adventure game with beautifully handcrafted 2D art, full voice-acting and puzzles reminiscent of classic LucasArts adventures. The narrative starts off light-hearted and funny but soon shifts to a dramatic and thought-provoking tone over 20 hours of gameplay. This multi-layered story features original character and world designs based on short stories written by the game’s creator, included as in-game bonuses.

Now, with the game coming to the Nintendo Switch, players can immerse themselves in the multi-layered story and its original world design with the convenience of handheld gaming. The Night of the Rabbit promises to be an unmissable adventure for both long-time fans and newcomers alike.
