ABZÛ Coming To Nintendo Switch November 29th
We’re excited to announce that ABZÛ is diving onto Nintendo Switch on November 29th 2018. Discover a lush hidden world as you descend into the heart of the ocean, where ancient secrets lie forgotten and encounters with majestic creatures await.
ABZÛ is a beautiful underwater journey that immerses players in a vibrant ocean world full of mystery and bursting with colour and life. Playing as the Diver, you’ll discover hundreds of unique species based on real creatures and form a powerful connection with the abundant sea life. But this underwater world can be dangerous, broken and toxic – and your mission is to unlock the mysteries of the deep and change the world around you for the better.
Developed by Giant Squid – led by Matt Nava, the artistic mind behind Journey® and Flower® – and featuring a score by Grammy-nominated and two-time BAFTA-winning composer Austin Wintory, ABZÛ is told in the form of mythology and folklore, while capturing the dream-like feeling of underwater exploration. The name is derived from ancient Sumerian language; AB, meaning water, and ZÛ, meaning to know: ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.
First launched in 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, ABZÛ was lauded by critics and garnered numerous awards and nominations including…
* Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media – International Film Music Critics Association (WINNER)
* Artistic Achievement – 2017 BAFTA British Academy Games Awards
* Music of the Year – 2017 Game Audio Network Awards (WINNER)
* Best Original Game – 2016 Joystick Awards
