As of today, PM Studios and acttil have officially released their critically acclaimed rhythm game from Rayark, which brings what mobile fans have been enjoying on their touch-based devices to life on the Nintendo Switch.
Originally released in 2012 as a mobile game for iOS and Android, CYTUS is an absolutely fun, and mesmerizing title that doesn’t just give you songs to play – it tells a story through each of the chapters a player can experience. Let alone is it absolutely fun, it’s one that’s packed to the brim with songs to enjoy and now that CYTUS α is here, you can experience more than 200 songs, which includes previously unreleased tracks, and an astonishingly well-designed science fiction story, which unfolds before you through the switch’s touch screen mechanics.
For $49.99, fans don’t get just take on the base mobile experience, but the entire experience CYTUS has offered for years as a free-to-play title with paid DLC options. But now, it’s here, and with the magnificence of the Nintendo Switch, which puts CYTUS side-by-side with titles such as Deemo and Musynx on the Nintendo Switch, giving fans an ever-growing library of rhythm-based games.
Fans of any genre of music will surely find a reason to enjoy the title, allowing them to even enjoy songs as some DJMAX songs have been tossed into the mix, including “End of Moonlight,” “Don’t Die,” and even “Ask to Wind (Live Mix)”. Those having trouble with the touch screen will be able to play in a “Joy-Con” mode that will allow them to use the button controls, but truth-be-told, we’re not sure how this works yet, but we are excited to see how this game plays out now that it is available.
Those looking to get a physical edition of the game can do so, which features a physical copy of the game, soundtrack, and a collectible box for it all to call home at the end of the day. The physical edition will only be available while supplies last.
Stay tuned for our continued coverage of CYTUS α.
