World for Two is now available for Switch in Japan

Another popular mobile game comes to Switch!

Announced for Switch way back in April 2018, World for Two has been given a surprise launch on the Japanese eShop today. Previously released for mobile devices in 2019, the Switch version adds 14 new organisms, and a "Prequel" story unlocked after completing the main game. Priced at ¥1,400, this life creation adventure game from publisher room6 and developer Seventh Rank is available right now.

Story
One day, nearly all life died due to an unforeseen calamity.
After several years, the sole survivor in this ruined world—a doctor—was trying to create life in an underground laboratory.
In order to gather the energy necessary to create organisms, the doctor built an android able to operate outside.
In a world where human civilization is no longer, vegetation is overgrown. It is cruel, but beautiful.
In this world, the doctor and android begin the creation of life.
This is a story of the creation of life in a dying world.

About
The immensely popular iOS and Android game World for Two appears on Switch!
The Switch version adds 14 new organisms, allowing for richer creation of life.
The organisms from the iOS and Android versions also appear, now with updated animations that invoke a greater sense of life.
By clearing the Switch version, you can play the “Prequel” story that depicts the doctor’s past. Enjoy a new story created specifically for this version with new music.
Furthermore, as a clear bonus, you can unlock a feature to change the background music in the main story to a piano quintet (piano, two violins, viola, and cello) to experience the beautiful world to more immersive sounds.
