It’s only just around the corner but today the Future Cat and DANGEN Entertainment teams have announced that OneShot will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and Nintendo Switch in 2022.
Having first launched on PC via Steam in 2016, Oneshot is a top-down puzzler, one that combines a bit of adventure in for good matter. It follows the life of a child – Niko – who is tasked with returning light to a desolate world that has been shrouded in darkness. And now that world will be coming to Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.
The indie title achieved international acclaim for its clever story and use of metafictional elements, in which the game is aware of the player, who plays a functional role in the story. This announcement comes just as OneShot celebrates the 5th anniversary, with news that the console port will be published worldwide by DANGEN Entertainment. It will also include new, console-specific features.
You’d do well to check out the latest teaser trailer for the game, as it shows Niko hinting at a different world than that found on PC.
“We hope you look forward to seeing Niko on consoles,” says developer Future Cat LLC, a small studio focused on bringing strong narrative-driven experiences to gamers.
The console port will be localized in English, Japanese, Spanish (Castillan), French, Brazilian Portuguese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Russian, whilst details regarding the console features will be revealed at a later date.
The key features of Oneshot incluede:
- Gameplay mechanics that go beyond the game window.
- A unique relationship between the game and its player.
- New features designed for consoles.
- A lingering feeling that you’re not getting the full story unless you know where to look.
