The game will also be available for pre-purchase with a 25% discount between December 25th and January 16. For players curious about this colorful platformer, there will be a demo available on the eShop on December 28th.

Octahedron is a psychedelic neon action platformer where players can make platforms out of this air in order to surf through its levels to an uplifting and atmospheric soundtrack which features a mix of chiptune and synthwave genres. Chipzel, André Sobota, Monomirror are just a handful of artists who shared their musical work with the game.
Here’s what Marco Guardia, the creator of Octahedron, had to say about this announcement:
“I’m super excited to be bringing Octahedron to the Nintendo Switch! It is such an amazing fit for the platform. I spent a lot of extra time adding special content to this new edition of the game!“
