Independent studio The Game Bakers released their fast-paced action title Furi for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 back in July 2016 to some high praise. One platform has yet to see the game’s release, but according to the development team, that’s soon to change.
Furi will bring its lightning-fast gameplay to Nintendo Switch sometime in early 2018, according to a statement released by the developer. For Creative Director Emeric Thoa, releasing the game on the Nintendo system is about more than simply hitting the next hot thing. It’s about never letting the frustration of loss conquer you.
“Furi is a game that’s constantly taunting you. There is something deeply personal about a boss fight: it’s just you against one opponent. And being interrupted is even more frustrating than losing. But with the Switch, you can take the game and all of its boss fights with you wherever you go.”
Furi was created to be a sort of “love letter” to the Japanese titles that The Game Bakers have found most influential. Elements of game’s like No More Heroes, Metal Gear Solid, and Godhand have all found their way into this twin-stick title.

In September, DualShockers took the time to ask The Game Bakers a few questions about their fifth released game. Around that time, the team also announced that it had no plans to create a sequel for the title.
