Studio Ghibli-Esque, What Comes After, Releases On Switch This April

Fahmitsu, the creator of Coffee Talk, and developer Rolling Glory Jam (Rage in Peace) are bringing their heart-warming, side-scrolling adventure title, What Comes After, to the Nintendo Switch this April.

What Comes After is a port of the Steam version released back in November of 2020. It went on to receive 92% positive reviews, and some critical acclaim. Now, the hauntingly beautiful adventure title is making its way over to the Switch, hoping to bring in a new audience.

What Is What Comes After?

What Comes After is a narrative-driven adventure title that puts players in the role of Vivi. Players will explore a train filled with the souls of people, animals and plants that are journeying to the afterlife. It discusses heavy themes such as love, regrets, life and death, but does so by blending humour and philosophy together. I love the Studio Ghibli aesthetic with the spirit train and the idea of a young woman finding her way in a confusing world full of difficult decisions. There’s certainly going to be a lot to uncover on this journey, but here are a few things you can expect when it launches:

  • Experience a short, but poignant story
  • Explore a train full of colourful spirits
  • Engage in a personal journey to better understand and love yourself
  • Enjoy the gorgeous artwork and character designs
