The Eyes of Ara, the award-winning puzzle adventure set in a mysterious castle, will share its secrets with Nintendo Switch on Oct. 15, 2019. While some ports don’t always map well to new controllers, The Eyes of Ara is launching on the Switch with a dedicated touch screen and Joy-Con support.
On the go, piece puzzles together with the ease of a finger or stylus. When docked, guide the Joy-Con to precisely point at puzzle objects using the inbuilt gyroscope. These intuitive control options make exploring the richly detailed environments as empowering as it is rewarding.
What is The Eyes of Ara? Well, after years of silence, a strange radio transmission erupts from a centuries-old, long-abandoned castle. You play as the technician hired to investigate the call and as such enter the perplexing citadel, navigate massive, detailed environments, and solve complex puzzles to uncover the truth behind the mysterious signal.
A labyrinth of secret suites and intricate mysteries in a fantastical setting await. In each of the castle’s beautifully crafted areas, find helpful clues and objects, using or combining them in inventive ways to venture deeper. Lost keepsakes and other secrets off the beaten path tell the captivating story of those who came before.
“Community and critical support for The Eyes of Ara have made it possible to bring this enchanting castle and all its tantalizing mysteries to Nintendo Switch, where exclusive control options make the game more accessible than ever,” said Ben Droste, lead developer, 100 Stones Interactive. “When Switch owners enter this castle, they’ll find a perplexing world full of secrets that rewards deep thinking with even deeper mysteries.”
