Wenjia

2D platformer Wenjia is coming to Switch via the Nintendo eShop on March 26 for $7.99 / 780 yen, publisher Indienova and developer White Lake Studio announced. It will support English, Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese language options.

Wenjia first launched for Xbox One and Windows 10 via the Microsoft Store in September 2018, followed by PC via Steam in October 2018.

Here is an overview of the game, via its store pages:

About

The world of Wenjia is one that shifts between the realms of Matter and Energy.

The realms of Matter and Energy mirror each other in perfect duality. However, certain entities in the Energy Realm have evolved into matter-less sentient beings. The game’s kitten protagonist (a cat-shaped energy entity) and spirits are all examples of such beings. Pure energy entities can travel freely between the two realms.

The story of Wenjia thus unfolds…

A forest’s longstanding tranquility is shattered by a sudden earthquake. As lava bursts forth from the ground, the mountain’s spirits find themselves surrounded by fiery death. By controlling a kitten, the player must overcome numerous obstacles in the wild to reach the burning heart of the mountain and rescue the spirits before it’s too late.

Key Features

  • Cross-Realm TravelsWenjia is a 2D platform game with puzzle-solving elements. Players can freely travel between two realms, each of them with different challenges and obstacles. Players must utilize both realms’ mechanisms to reach their final goal.
  • Soothing In-game EnvironmentWenjia’s exquisite hand-drawn graphics bring out both the vivid colorfulness of the Matter Realm and the fantastical strangeness of the Energy Realm.
