Rivals of Aether: Definitive Edition releases for Switch in 2020


At Genesis 7 there was one big announcement - the long awaited (and teased) Rivals of Aether Switch version was finally unveiled. The Definitive Edition will include four player online, all previously released characters, stages, and modes - this includes both of the guest characters, Shovel Knight from Shovel Knight and Ori & Sein from Ori and the Blind Forest.

Steam Workshop support will, unfortunately, not be included in the Nintendo Switch version due to being impossible. Every other mode from the original game will be included.

The trailer can be found below,

Nice! I've waited a long time to get RoA for the Switch so I'll be double dipping. Between now and it's release I wonder what other new content Dan will reveal for the game?
tbh the game is great, but it's just not worth it without the workshop. That's like 99% of what makes this game so good.
I respectfully disagree. The base game is worth the price of admission alone. Steam workshop is basically icing on the cake.
Too bad they don't at least have the officially created Panda character playable. :p I mean it's not the whole workshop, but it'd be something.
