After the initial announcement that a Switch version of mobile rhythm game VOEZ will be getting released in the west, there’s a little clarification on its release date and a brief new trailer. VOEZ releases as a launch title in Europe as well as Japan, following shortly after in North America on 9th March. Take a look at some gameplay in the trailer below:
Here’s a little more on the game’s story and gameplay from Flyhigh Works:
VOEZ is played by touching falling notes in time with the music. Set in a fictional town named “Lan Kong Town”, which is modeled after Yilan in Taiwan, the story is centered around 6 high school students who form a band that eventually achieves international fame.
Gameplay is simple, requiring players to touch vertically falling notes that have hit a bar on the bottom of the screen. Depending on the song, the number of lanes for the notes increase and shift side to side, making the screen look as if it is dancing to the music. There are over 100 songs in the library.
Three difficulty levels, “Easy”, “Hard” and “Special” are available. Players are able to choose difficulty levels according to their skill so they may enjoy all pieces.
The site’s FAQ also confirms that all 116 songs will be included, with the addition of ‘Ascension(xi)’ exclusive to the Switch version. Further songs may be added as free updates in the future, including Switch limited ones.
VOEZ releases for the Switch on 3rd March in Japan and Europe 9th March and in North America.
