Toxic Games’ physics-based puzzle title Q.U.B.E 2 is officially heading to Nintendo Switch on February 21st 2019. The first-person puzzler will launch on the Switch eShop with a 15% discount and as a limited physical print courtesy of Super Rare Games.
Q.U.B.E 2 is a mind-bending first-person puzzle game where players take on the role of stranded archaeologist Amelia Cross. After waking up in an alien land shrouded by an aggressive sandstorm, Amelia soon finds herself trapped deep within a maze-like monolith. With only some mysterious gloves, a bad case of amnesia, and the distant radio transmissions of another survivor to aid her, players must help Amelia uncover her past and find a way off the planet.
Often likened to games like Portal 1 / 2 and The Talos Principle, Q.U.B.E 2 features 11 diverse environments to explore and over 80 physics-based puzzles for players to solve. The core game-play focuses around the use of Amelia’s manipulation gloves, which allow the player to interact and adjust the architectural structure surrounding them to proceed through the game.
