Toys-to-Life Co-op Adventure Game “Oniri Islands – Children of the River” Meets Kickstarter Goal   

Tourmaline studio announces successful $30K kickstarter campaign for its upcoming toys-to-life tablet co-op adventure game Oniri Islands – Children of the River

 

 

 Geneva, Switzerland, April 17 – Geneva-based game developer, Tourmaline Studio, announced today the successful completion of its kickstarter campaign for toy-to-life cooperative adventure game Oniri Islands – Children of the River. The goal for the Kickstarter campaign was set at $30,000, which will go towards the tooling and manufacturing of the figurines. There are still 24 hours to go before the end of the campaign for backers to support new stretch goals.

Kickstarter Page for Oniri Islands 

Oniri Islands – Children of the River is striking for its colorful and attractive art style, as well as the social interaction that develops between the players through its gameplay. It’s a co-op experience where players use two figurines, which represent the game’s two heroes Mina and Tim, to drag along the screen and explore the island together in unison. Players find hidden items and solve entertaining puzzles while also earning unique powers that are physically represented by masks that can be placed on the figurines.

“We’re are thrilled to be funded on Kickstarter with still one day to go! With the pledges and thanks to our fans and community, we can now start the production of the toys. Our backers are really excited about our project and they are looking forward the upcoming release in November 2017.” says Camille, co-founder of Tourmaline Studio. 

Oniri Islands – Children of the River is scheduled to release in Q4 2017 on both Apple and Android tablets for $35.00 USD. The starter pack will include two figurines alongside the application delivering a storyline inspired by Peter Pan’s Lost boys (JM Barrie) in 3 chapters full of life and vibrant imagery.

Nintendo Switch Becomes the Fastest-Selling Video Game System in Nintendo History

Nintendo Switch Becomes the Fastest-Selling Video Game System in Nintendo History

More Than 906,000 U.S. Units Sold in March;

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Game Also Sets Records

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Nintendo Switch, the new home gaming system that people can also take on the go, has sold faster in its launch month than any other video game system in Nintendo history. The Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units in March, according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States. That makes Nintendo Switch one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time. Notably, this sales surge was accomplished in a nontraditional month for a console launch.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game sold over 1.3 million units*. That total includes more than 925,000 units sold for Nintendo Switch and nearly 460,000 units sold for the Wii U console. That means that Nintendo sold more of this game for Nintendo Switch than it sold Nintendo Switch systems, for an attach rate of more than 100 percent. This may be attributed to people who purchased both a limited edition of the game to collect and a second version to play.

This was all enough to make The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild the fastest-selling Nintendo launch game of all time, as well as the fastest-selling game ever in The Legend of Zelda series.

“Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “With its various play modes and the innovative features of the Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch provides unique experiences that people can take with them anywhere and share with anyone.”

While Nintendo Switch sales are off to a record-breaking start, shipments have not yet been able to keep up with such high demand. Nintendo is working to make sure everyone who wants a system is able to buy one, and more systems are continually being shipped. In just over two weeks, the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game will launch for Nintendo Switch on April 28 with more content than any other Mario Kart game in series history, including 48 racing tracks, new Battle modes, new characters and other additions. Competition on Nintendo Switch gets even hotter heading into summer, with the release of the ARMS game on June 16 and the Splatoon 2 game on July 21.

A full accounting of worldwide Nintendo Switch sales, as well as other financial information, will be provided on April 27, when Nintendo issues its fiscal-year earnings release. For more information, keep an eye on Nintendo’s investor relations page at https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en.
