The Touryst has been in development for 3 years, will have a "rock-solid 60fps performance"

Care to take the tour?

Shin'en are known for their technical wizardry on Nintendo platforms, cramming super-impressive experiences into small file sizes, and pushing the limits of what Nintendo's hardware can do. The developer looks to continue their track record with The Touryst, which comes to Switch on Nov. 21st, 2019.

In an interview with NintendoEverything, we find out the team has been working on The Touryst for 3 years now, tacking it on before they even wrapped up work on FAST RMX. As usual, Shin'en prides themselves on the tech side of things, and confirm the game will have a "rock-solid 60fps performance."

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

The Touryst - off-screen gameplay

You are just arriving at the Monument Islands. Want to go swimming? Or rather take a dive into the deep sea? Or do you want to visit the amusement arcade, do some shopping, dance at the beach party? Fancy some surfing? Or will you talk with the strange old tourist and listen what he has to say about these ancient mysterious monuments..

Puzzle games must be addictive. That's why we designed 200 levels to not only challenge your skills but also your imagination. With its tight controls, Art of Balance is easy to pick up and hard to put away.

Shin'en teases Switch news for tomorrow

Shin'en supported the Switch at launch with FAST RMX, but we haven't really heard anything from them since. Turns out the company has been hard at work on something else for the Switch, and the first details are set to release tomorrow! Could this be more DLC for FAST RMX, or something else completely? We'll find out in 24 hours!

FAST RMX - Full details on the free Remix update available later today

We've already had a generic breakdown of what content is coming in the FAST RMX "Remix update" later today, but now thanks to our friends at Nintendo Life, we have a full rundown of the specifics!

6 new tracks and 2 new cups

Titanium Cup

- Tepaneca Haze
- Chuoku Habitat
- Ice Coast

Iridium Cup

- Cameron Raceway
- Sunahara Valley
- Scorpio Mine

The 6 new tracks are crossover tracks. For example, 'Scorpio Mine' is a remix/crossover from the original 'Scorpio Circuit' and 'Willard Mine' tracks.

The update also includes some other improvements and tweaks.

- The CPU-driver AI has been improved
- A hang on the loading screen that happened when your Switch wasn't powered down for a month has been resolved
- Friend Online plays are now shown in yours
- Switch console 'Friend Activity log'

The update will be available today at 8:00 PDT. That gives you a few hours to fire the game up and get back into the groove of things, and then really strut your stuff on the new tracks!
