No Straight Roads will launch for Xbox One and Switch day and date with the previously announced PlayStation 4 and PC (Epic Games Store) versions on June 30, publisher Sold Out and developer Metronomik announced.
“Fans have been asking for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions of No Straight Roads since day one, so we’re incredibly excited to bring the game to those platforms simultaneously with the PS4 and PC versions this June,” said Sold Out marketing director Sarah Hoeksma in a press release. “We can’t wait for players to embrace their inner rock star this summer with this musical adventure on their platform of choice.”
The Switch version of No Straight Roads includes the following additional features designed to take advantage of the system’s unique functionality:
- Exclusive Assist Mode – Partner up with an additional local player to take control of the Elliegator, a secret alligator assistant who can help players in battle by picking up items, transforming props and calling in useful bonuses.
- Three-Player Co-Op– Played in conjunction with the game’s co-op mode, Assist Mode lets up to three local players experience No Straight Roads’ music-based action together, only on Nintendo Switch.
- Touchscreen Support – Use the Nintendo Switch system’s touchscreen to transform props and pick up items.
- Single Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controller Play – Play through the entire game using a single Joy-Con, or pass the second Joy-Con to a friend to play in couch co-op.
The No Straight Roads, which includes a double-sided vinyl LP with tracks from the game’s original soundtrack, a 64-page art book, official No Straight Roads drumsticks, and a special box, will also be available for Xbox One and Switch in addition to PlayStation 4.
Here is a brief overview of the game, via Sold Out:
Directed by Wan Hazmer, lead game designer of Final Fantasy XV, and Daim Dziauddin, concept artist of Street Fighter V, No Straight Roads is an action-adventure game that mashes together rhythm-infused combat with a vibrant offbeat world and a killer soundtrack.
The game pits two passionate indie rock band members, Mayday and Zuke, against EDM empire NSR, whose tight grip on Vinyl City is smothering the expression of other music genres. Explore eclectic districts, face colossal bosses and lead a musical revolution to uncover NSR’s evil intentions and save Vinyl City from corruption.
