Adorable Metroidvania, Islets, Gets Physical Switch Release

Super Rare Games have teamed up with Armor Games and Kyle Thompson to bring Islets to physical format for the first time on the Nintendo Switch.

Islets is a captivating adventure centred around Iko, a determined warrior who ventures across the vast expanse of land and sky to reunite a series of floating islands. Equipped with his rickety airship, he embarks on a perilous journey from one island to another, rekindling the magnetic core of each while battling against formidable foes.

Beyond its action-packed gameplay, Islets also exudes a heartwarming message of forging meaningful relationships with those around you. As Iko reunites the scattered islands and befriends a charming cast of characters, the world expands, unveiling new territories for him to explore. Uncover hidden upgrades and face off against secret challenges by scouring every corner of this dynamic realm. Overall, Islets is a surprisingly wholesome metroidvania adventure that promises to entertain and inspire.

Islets Physical Release

Super Rare Games is, once again, bringing an indie game to physical format on the Nintendo Switch. They have done this previously with the likes of popular indie games such as Flynn: Son of Crimson and Abzu.

In typical Super Rare fashion, the physical release includes all the current content in the game, a full-colour manual, interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and trading cards. Furthermore, those interested won’t have to wait long as the game will ship shortly after it goes on sale this week. However, there is a catch; only 4000 copies will ever be sold. This is the standard amount of copies available for every physical release by Super Rare Games. Therefore, you will have to quick and purchase a copy as they release this week.

The physical release of Islets releases on March 9, 2023, at 1 pm ET / 6 pm GMT and 4 am AEST (the next day). It is available exclusively at
