The Nintendo Switch version of the room-based puzzler is almost here.

Team 17 has announced it will publish The Room on Nintendo Switch. The game, developed by Fireproof Studios, has been optimized for Nintendo Switch following a successful run on various other platforms.

Already available on PC, iOS and Android, The Room is described by its enthusiastic publisher as "a physical puzzler wrapped inside a mystery game where you are transported into a unique space that blends stunning visuals with intriguing problems to solve." So it's much like a typical day at the office, except you don't get a paycheck.

The game begins with an invitation to an abandoned house. In the attick, you find a cast-iron safe with strange carvings. You know that if you can just open the safe, you'll find "something ancient and astonishing," and that's all the incentive you need to devote yourself to a puzzle-filled investigation.

"The Room has been rebuilt from the ground up specifically for Nintendo Switch to utilise both the touch screen and the Joy-Con controllers," notes today's press release. "Use the intuitive touch screen controls to solve puzzles in handheld mode or utilise the Joy-Con controllers in newly implemented motion control in TV mode."

The Room has won numerous awards, including iPad Game of the Year 2012 from Apple, the BAFTA for British Game and the GDC Award for Best Handheld/Mobile Game. It sounds like it could be an ideal fit for the Nintendo Switch, and who knows? This could even wind up being the definitive edition of what by numerous counts is a very good game indeed. Besides that, it'll be priced at $9.99/£6.99/€8.99. Are you intrigued?
