Games are sometimes made for a singular console, or handheld, or even mobile. But, if the situation is right, a game can jump to another console or handheld generation and grow even more. This appears to be the case for Cube Life: Island Survival.
This game was made for the Wii U originally by developer Cypronia. It had obvious Minecraft style, and even look, but it took the game to a different level than Minecraft does in its game, as it’s actually one about survival. Instead of just building whatever you wanted. Don’t worry, it has that too in “Creative Mode”, but the true fun in the game is trying to endure in “Survival Mode”. Where you have to gather resources, maintain stamina, and live through both day and night cycles in order to survive.
Now, the team at Cypronia have decided to “Switch” things up…
Yes, Cube Life is confirmed to be coming to the Nintendo Switch, and even the PS4 in 2017. It promises better graphics, new improvements to the gameplay, and more. Which is saving something, because the game already had a lot of content. Including Local Multiplayer (that featured Deathmatches, Tower Defense, and more), the ability to not only create maps, but create maps for multiplayer. Various updates that happened throughout its initial run. Two different ways of viewing the game, a very large world, and more.
This will no doubt be a huge asset to the Switch’s lineup. Why do I say that? Well, in its Wii U run, Cube Life: Island Survival, became one of the most popular indie games on the console, and even compared to other consoles. And as the team was happy to note, it “hit the top of the charts and was #1 selling game in Europe, #2 in America and #3 in Japan.”
So if you’re looking for a new cube experience, this game might be for you when it released on Nintendo Switch and PS4 in 2017.
