For those unfamiliar, Rain World is a survival platformer released just last year by Adult Swim Games, and developed by Videocult. You play as the adorable and nomadic slugcat, a creature that’s considered both predator and prey in a land where “[b]one-crushingly intense rains pound the surface, making life as we know it almost impossible.” During very brief periods of dryness, the creatures that are usually found hibernating come out in search of food. To survive and keep up your own cycle of hibernation, you need to hunt — and survive the wrath of the other beasts within the land who have the same agenda.
Rain World has received praise for its art direction and animations, and overall, the game’s presentation seems almost perfect for the Switch, and in what seems like the year of ports for the console, it looks like it just might be coming. While nothing is confirmed yet, the official Twitter account for the game tweeted just yesterday to gauge interest about a port for the game.
Despite the game’s previous releases on PS4 and Steam, reception to the idea seems quite positive so far. While it’s still hard to tell if the title is guaranteed to get ported, Nintendo’s history over the past couple years with indie games makes it seem pretty likely.
