Abzu is a beautiful exploration type game in the vein of journey and flower. except this one is underwater.

its been released on PC/ps4/x1 since 2016 and has been available for 19.99$. good to see the switch price is the same.

you can pre-purchase the game now for a 20% discount.

no word on a physical release.

so i'm playing it right now. its beautiful. however switch is 30FPS.

i tried turning on the intropolation on my tv to make it 60 and.....wow. if your tv has that option you have to do it. the game is stunning at 60fps.

only slight issue i have is the controls are a bit awkward. still fine though.

Really strange yet beautiful game. Played it on Ps4 years ago. Definitely recommend it if under $20.

I've read that it is very short.

I keep hoping that Akira will bring Endless Ocean to the Switch.

oh yea, endless ocean. back from the wii days. great game. a remake/remaster of the first game on switch would be awesome.

or endless ocean 3 would be great too.

The second game was the best, but I'd rather see an entirely new entry for the Switch. I always hoped for a 3DS version just because it would have looked awesome in 3D.

I have it on the PS4 and it isn't worth 20$. More like a 10 or less.

It didn't mesmerize like Journey did just because there is like no reason to move forward
