Announced during Microsoft’s E3 2013 Occasion, Below is an Activity roguelike Created by Capybara Games, Famous for games like Critter Crunch and Super Time Force.
It was indefinitely delayed after the studio chose to spend more time polishing the game. While the release window Below is slated for 2018, for Steam and Xbox One, it appears that Below could be making it into the PS4 and Nintendo Switch after all. Based on an interview with GodIsaGeek.com, Below’s director, Kris Pitriowski indicated it will not be console exclusive to the Xbox One when asked about which platforms we could see Below on next and if there are plans for a physical variant of the game.
“Up to the physical launch, I am unsure about that. I would love to launch a game which comes in a little box. We’ve been talking to a vendors about doing some special editions, but that’s just something we have been thinking about, none of that has been finalised. It comes out in a way that isn’t just digital, I like putting together little custom boxes and stuff like this! Like things that players can hold onto, and assist them be lovers,” he stated before agreeing of the possibility of Below coming to the PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
“As it pertains to other platforms, right now we are just announcing Xbox and Steam. Beyond that, I can’t state, right now.”
It’d be interesting to see if this is indeed the case as in the instant Below is a console exclusive to the Xbox One and Pitriowski’s statement indicates it might end up being a timed Xbox One exclusive. Together with the Xbox One finally getting Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and No Man’s Sky, it’d be good to view Below hit a wider audience. Especially when you consider how poorly the Xbox One was selling in most markets.
