In an interview with IGN UK, RiME developer Tequila Works revealed that Tantalus Studios, the team that ported The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess to the Wii U last year, will be working on porting the upcoming adventure title to the Nintendo Switch.

The Nintendo Switch version is being developed by Tantalus, the studio behind the HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. We worked side by side with them to ensure the Nintendo Switch version is absolutely true to the original vision we have for RiME, and they are doing a terrific work indeed! We are really enthusiastic about Nintendo Switch and we are immensely happy about releasing RiME on that console, but it’s too early to discuss future developments. Let’s finish RiME first! 🙂

This isn’t the first game that Tantalus will be working on for the Switch. Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Tantalus would also be working on porting Sonic Mania to Nintendo’s new console as well.

Tequila Works hopes to have the Switch version of RiME ready to launch alongside the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game this May and is currently investigating a retail release on Nintendo’s upcoming system as well. For more information, check out the full interview over at IGN.
