Whisker Waters was previously announced for Switch, but we now have confirmation that it will have a physical release at retail.
Maximum Entertainment, Merge Games, and Underbite will be working together on the boxed editions. As of now no special editions have been announced.
Here’s an overview of the title:
For many years, the bears, birds and cats lived together in harmony. Adventurers known as Fish Rangers, who used rod and reel as their primary tools, served their communities and united the townsfolk. Until the Great Disturbance… Unleashing conflict and plague on the people of the land, the Fish Rangers rallied to the source and halted the spread – diligently the Rangers remained on guard, as generations and slowly faded away into legend.
