South Of The Circle To Bring Emotional Storytelling To Switch Soon

Publisher 11 bit studios has announced that the “compelling narrative experience” South of the Circle will be making its way to the Switch.

Although no firm release date has been set as of yet, the game is looking to be an emotional love story set during the Cold War, with games like Firewatch and What Remains of Edith Finch being big influences on the project. The game will feature several familiar voice actors (shout out to The Woman In Black’s Adrian Rawlins!) to flesh out the story and bring it some emotional weight.

Here’s some more info from 11 bit studios:

In South of the Circle, you follow the story of Peter. Tangled in life-defining choices and torn between pursuing either career or true love, he finds himself in the middle of behind-the-scenes strife between military powers. Set in a Cold War reality, the game is defined by its story, stretching between past and present, minimalist aesthetics, and exceptional writing and voice acting which delivers an experience resembling top-tier cinema. Among talents heard on-screen are Gwilym Lee (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), Olivia Vinall (“The Woman in White”), Richard Goulding (“The Crown”), Anton Lesser (“Game of Thrones”), Adrian Rawlins (“Chernobyl”), and Michael Fox (“Downton Abbey”).
