Though the Wii U had a short life, it was home to more than a few fantastic games. Tadpole Treble was one of those games, and like many others before it, it’s now swimming over to the Nintendo Switch pond. Announced via a delightfully catchy new song, Tadpole Treble Encore sees the original title rehydrated and polished up with some new content added in that’s sure to be refreshing.



Tadpole Treble Encore was developed by the minds at Bitfinity, and helmed by the creator of the beloved Nintendo-centric webcomic Brawl in the Family. The splashy rhythm-action game sees a tadpole named Baton on a lighthearted and musical journey to return home. She’ll encounter a variety of obstacles and enemies to overcome on her adventures, as well as meet a unique cast of aquatic (and semi-aquatic) friends and foes, all backdropped by watery sheet music!

As with the game’s WiiU release, the title has dozens of songs, including six fully sung tracks, and a plenty of content for high-score seeking amphibians — or humans, if you’re one of those. Also returning is the game’s Conductor mode, which allows players to create their own stages with all sorts of obstacles and instruments. The Switch release will feature higher resolution assets, new unlockables, a brand new stage, and of course, portable play!

Tadpole Treble Encore will hatch on the Switch eShop on January 21st, and like the song in the trailer says: “if you want something quirky and new — it’s true — then Tadpole Treble Encore is for you! A-boopity-boop.”
