Voez, a Portable-Only Switch Rhythm Game, Coming West in 2017
Voez is a rhythm action game originally released for mobile devices, but now it’s on its way to the Nintendo Switch. It will be a launch title in Japan, and Circle Entertainment announced it will publish Voez in the West (as well as other Nintendo games) in 2017.
The developer, Rayark Games, previously developed Deemo and Cytus, two popular rhythm games.
In addition to the 100+ songs from the original version of Voez, all from Japanese and Taiwanese artists, this version will also include a Switch-exclusive song called “Ascension” by Xi. More songs will be added through updates. Although the rhythm gameplay is the main focus, it also tells the story of six characters involved in the band called Voez.
Voez will only be playable in the Switch’s portable mode, because it requires the touchscreen to play. As notes fall from the top of the screen, you must touch, hold, and swipe them when they overlap with the bar at the bottom. You will not be able to play Voez in TV mode.
This is the first portable-only game announced for the Nintendo Switch, and it will be interesting to see if other touchscreen-focused games follow suit. Are you interested in Voez?
