I’ve had my eye on Save Me Mr. Tako: Tasukete Tako-San for a while now, watching and waiting for some kind of release date. Taking tons of cues and style from Game Boy platformers (with Kirby being the one that immediately comes to mind) both in its design and tone, it’s always looked like a charming game that’ll make us all remember the simpler, two-button era.

The wait’s almost over for this squishy savior now, with the official Nintendo page for Mr. Tako now showing an October 30th release for Nintendo Switch. In mere weeks you can head under the sea yourself and help smooth things over between humans and octopi, in a game that’s looking to both emulate and elevate its inspiration.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
