Celeste getting 'Variants Mode' on Switch at a later date

The PC version of Celeste has gotten an update that adds in a new feature, and it sounds like a particularly challenging one.

Added Variants Mode! A collection of special options to change the rules of the game, unlocked after completing the C-Sides. Activate Variants Mode on the File Select menu

This content will be available on the Switch at some point down the road. Whenever a release date is mentioned, we'll be sure to share with you.

New round of Celeste merch available on Fangamer

Celeste DLC seemingly teased




Oh boy, I really hope this is a tease for new content. It certainly seems like new content is being teased! The developer of Celeste sent out this tweet, which states clearly that we're seeing a work in progress. There's no doubt we're looking at Celeste here, and this is a stage not found anywhere in the game right now. Hopefully we get the full details on what this is soon!

"A lot of what you hear in the original soundtrack came from the spur of the moment, feeling an emotion and letting myself ride it," reflects composer and co-producer Lena Raine. "In that same sort of way, I feel that Hibino-san and GENTLE LOVE tapped into that same creative flow. They took what I wrote, and felt their way through their own interpretations of those same emotions and sentiments. It's an emotional thing to listen to that reinterpretation and, through those performances, feel a sort of communication out of time, across languages, across the world. The performers and I have never met face-to-face, yet I feel like we've had a conversation. They've heard my part, they've contributed theirs, and I feel refreshed in hearing the result of that musical dialogue. I truly love what we've managed to create here, and I hope you'll enjoy it too."

GoNintendo Exclusive - Check out a preview of the upcoming Prescription for Sleep: Celeste album!

During my 15+ years running GoNintendo, I've been honored to be a part of some amazing things. Events, announcements, and early access that I could have never dreamed of. It's been a surreal ride the entire time, and I owe every bit of those moments to you guys and gals. Without your constant support, none of this would have ever happened. That includes the special content I get to present you with today.

Those who follow the site/podcast know that I'm an insanely huge fan of Celeste. Not only do I find it to be one of the best games on the Switch, I also consider it one of my favorite games of all-time. The way it marries ridiculously tight gameplay with a deep and engaging story absolutely wows me. These elements alone are enough to win major praise from me, but the game's soundtrack took the experience to a completely different level.

Celeste composer Lena Raine put together an absolutely phenomenal series of songs for the game, ranging from upbeat, exciting tracks to melancholy and heart-wrenching melodies. From the very first teaser trailer for Celeste, I reached out to Lena on Twitter just to tell her how excited I was for the game's music, and how I couldn't wait to hear more. Of course, when the full game launched, Celeste's soundtrack blew me away, and far surpassed any expectations I had.

That leads me to this moment, where I have the absolute honor and privilege to share something special from Celeste with you. Scarlet Moon Productions reached out to me a few weeks back about their latest 'Prescription for Sleep' album. The Prescription for Sleep series takes game soundtracks and reworks them into beautiful piano covers. Their latest entry in the franchise covers the soundtrack of Celeste, and they were nice enough to give me an exclusive video preview of one track on the album. Please enjoy a sample of Quiet & Falling ~ In the Mirror from the Prescription for Sleep: Celeste album below.

The seventh installment of the Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies comes as Prescription for Sleep: Celeste. It features Metal Gear Solid and Bayonetta composer Norihiko Hibino on saxophone and Etrian Odyssey and PersonaQ performer AYAKI on piano as GENTLE LOVE, joined for the first time in the series by guest violinist maiko and the composer of Celeste, Lena Raine, acting as co-producer.

"I became aware of Celeste due to the buzz surrounding Lena's soundtrack, and even though I wasn't very good at the game, I stuck through it to the end, in large part because of the music" explains Scarlet Moon Records producer Jayson Napolitano. "I knew the game's themes of self-discovery and self-acceptance would align perfectly with what Hibino-san is trying to accomplish with his music, and we had a blast creating this volume and polling fans to include their pick. If you like the 'Scattered and Lost' arrangement, you have Lena's Twitter fans to thank for it! We hope you enjoy it."
