Any Arts Production has released the first full trailer for Seasons of Heaven – the first Switch exclusive indie title. The game is based on a novel by the same name, and follows Yann and his French Bulldog Ani on their adventure in Heaven. We’re not sure if this is supposed to be Heaven Heaven, or just a place called Heaven.
The first third of the video is mostly environmental shots that show the Unreal Engine 4 at work. After a minute or so we start to see some actual gameplay, though it isn’t that exciting. The intriguing bit is the ability to switch between Yann and Ani on the fly, as each of them has different abilities.
The trailer gets interesting around the 02:30 mark, when we see start to see ghosts, spirits and something that looks like a shoggoth.
It’s also important to note that the footage you see in the trailer is not taken from the Nintendo Switch. This is on PC footage, since the developers have yet to receive a Switch dev kit.
Seasons of Heaven is coming for to Switch in the future. We’ll have to wait till January to learn more about the console and its launch titles, and maybe then we’ll get a more solid release window.
