Chicory: A Colorful Tale is already available on the Nintendo Switch following yesterday’s Indie World showcase reveal. 

Appearing towards the end of the Nintendo Indie World Showcase December 2021, Chicory: A Colorful Tale was seen alongside fellow Nintendo Switch indie reveals such as Don’t Starve Together and Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery. However, unlike many of the other titles in this segment, Chicory actually got a same-day release date which may have gone unnoticed by many watchers.

In Chicory: A Colorful Tale, players take on the role of an adorable dog protagonist in a top-down adventure as they use their magic paintbrush to color in the world around them, solving puzzles and expanding their horizons as they go. The soundtrack was also scored by Lena Raine, who you may recognize as the composer of both Celeste and Minecraft. 

If you’re looking to pick this gorgeous indie to play on your Nintendo Switch, it is available now on the Nintendo eShop for £17.09 in the UK and for $19.99 in the US. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on whether Chicory will receive a pretty physical release so your only option right now is to grab it on the Nintendo eShop. It is, however, also available on PS4, PS5, and PC.

There were also a number of other highlights during Nintendo’s indie showcase, including the announcement that skating game OlliOlli World will release in February 2022, as well as the reveal of River City Girls 2, and the charming visual novel After Love EP.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
