Nintendo Switch and Xbox One owners get to join in the fun when No Straight Roads hits both consoles, along with the PlayStation 4 and PC, on June 30, 2020.

“Fans have been asking for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions of No Straight Roads since day one, so we’re incredibly excited to bring the game to those platforms simultaneously with the PS4 and PC versions this June,” said Sarah Hoeksma, Marketing Director at Sold Out. “We can’t wait for players to embrace their inner rock star this summer with this musical adventure on their platform of choice.”

Directed by Wan Hazmer, lead game designer of Final Fantasy XV, and Daim Dziauddin, concept artist of Street Fighter V, No Straight Roads is an action-adventure game that mashes together rhythm-infused combat with a vibrant offbeat world and a killer soundtrack. oprainfall’s Josh Speer got some hands-on impressions of the game at PAX West 2019, which you can read here.

The Nintendo Switch version includes additional features designed to take advantage of the console’s unique functionality, including:

  • Exclusive Assist Mode – Partner up with an additional local player to take control of the Elliegator, a secret alligator assistant who can help players in battle by picking up items, transforming props and calling in useful bonuses.
  • 3-Player Co-Op – Played in conjunction with the game’s co-op mode, Assist Mode lets up to three local players experience No Straight Roads’ music-based action together, only on Nintendo Switch.
  • Touchscreen Support – Use the Nintendo Switch system’s touchscreen to transform props and pick up items.
  • Single Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controller Play – Play through the entire game using a single Joy-Con, or pass the second Joy-Con to a friend to play in couch co-op.

The Nintendo Switch version is co-developed by NeoBards, the Taiwanese studio that also worked on Devil May Cry Triple Pack, Onimusha: Warlords and Resident Evil Resistance. The Xbox One version is co-developed by Toadman Interactive, the Swedish studio which is part of the EG7 group of companies.

In addition, the No Straight Roads Collector’s Edition, which features an exclusive double-sided vinyl LP with tracks from the game’s official soundtrack, a rockin’ 64-page ‘The Art of NSR’ artbook, official NSR drumsticks and a funky presentation box, will be available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 system.

No Straight Roads is available to pre-order now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store.
