Groundbending Multiplayer Platformer Georifters Heads To Switch This Summer

Groundbreaking news!

Video game publisher Leoful and Taipei indie team Busy Toaster Games are pleased to announce the first details for their platform manipulating adventure Georifters, for the Nintendo Switch.

Most platformer games have the player run, jump, and navigate around the platforms or under obstacles; Georifters, however, gifts the player with the ability to manipulate the platforms in a platformer! Push walls, flip the ground, punch portals, spin platforms around you or your friends, and that’s just a few of the creative ways you can interact with this unique and strange world. Play as one of seven heroes, each with their own special way of manipulating the ground.

Georifters features a comprehensive story mode with over 6 fantastical worlds for you and a friend to team up with and complete in couch co-op. You can also enter the “Battle Arena”, a couch competitive mode, where up to 4 players on the same system can challenge each other in a variety of different levels and battle settings. Unlock heroes, mix-and-match skin parts, weapons, and upgrades as you travel through the 300+ stages the game has to offer.

Georifters is scheduled to launch on the Nintendo Switch in summer 2020. A physical edition of Georifters, which includes bonus Pro Gamer skin parts for playable hero Candy, will be available for pre-order at retailers across Asia starting July 2020. The game will also be published digitally by Leoful on the Hong Kong region Nintendo eShop. Georifters is playable in English, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. An announcement regarding publishing and release for other territories will be made at a later date.

About Georifters

This unique ground bending platformer asks players to use 3D spatial reasoning to navigate 2D situations; why jump across gaps when you can use your ability to close them? A wall of spikes in your path? No problem, spin them out of your way. Pesky enemy getting you down? Crush them with the ground they are standing on! Push, flip, twist or turn the terrain to overcome challenges and battle competitors in hundreds of stages in single-player, co-op or multiplayer modes. Unlock new skills, costumes, heroes, and much more in this unique ground bending 3D platformer.

Each hero in Georifters lives, literally, in their own bubble world, but one day, strange rifts begin appearing in each of the worlds, followed by strange creatures wreaking havoc and stealing the very air you breathe! You must help Candy to venture out of her bubble world and embark on a ground bending adventure spanning the different worlds, meeting other heroes along the way and convincing them to leave their isolated worlds, to accept and understand each other’s differences and join you on your journey, together to fight for a greater good.

Georifters gets a new trailer

Coming to Switch later in 2020

Georifters was first announced for Switch back in January of 2019, and it seems to have been a bumpy road for the game ever since. Last we heard, the title was slated to hit Switch in February 2020, but that obviously didn't happen. Now we find out that the game is launching for Xbox One and PC, with the Switch version scheduled for sometime later this year. At least we have a new trailer to enjoy while we wait for the release date.
