Cytus Alpha

Original 07/24/17 at 5:07 a.m.: The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals Cytus Alpha for Switch.

Cytus Alpha is a full remake of the Rayark-developed rhythm game Cytus, described as a complete evolution from the smartphone version with over 200 songs and new artwork. It will be published by Flyhigh Works.

Further information has yet to surface from the magazine.

Thanks, Famitsu.

Update 11:50 p.m.: New information has surfaced.

The layout of the screen in Cytus Alpha has been completely overhauled from the smartphone game to make it more comfortable to play on Switch. It will also let players enjoy songs until the end without getting a game over mid-song. Finally, while the game has over 200 songs, there are more than 400 variations including arranged songs. All of the songs that previously appeared in Cytus will be included in Cytus Alpha. Several new songs are also planned.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
