Here is some great news for Nintendo Switch owners.

The Past Within, the latest spooky puzzle game in the acclaimed Rusty Lake series, will finally hit Switch consoles next month. Indie studio Rusty Lake announced that their game will land on Switch devices on July 6.

It is the first game in the series to be released on the Switch console.

On July 6, players on Nintendo Switchâ„¢ can experience The Past Within and explore The Past or The Future together, Rusty Lake wrote in a statement.

Rusty Lake has also dangled a discount for players who can pre-purchase the game on Nintendo eShop until July 6.

The Past Within, Rusty Lake's 16th installment, was first launched in November 2022. At that time, the game was only playable on PC, MacOS, Android, and iOS. But with the release of the Switch version, Rusty Lake confirmed that players can now enjoy a cross-platform experience.

As long as both players have a copy of the game and can talk to each other in some way, they can play on whichever platform they prefer, they explained.

The game's Nintendo Switch debut, Rusty Lake said, also marked another milestone for the popular game series. The Past Within has already reached over 1 million downloads on Steam, and an additional 100,000 on Android and iOS, they added.

The Path Within is the first co-op exclusive title under the Rusty Lake series. The game features asynchronous point-and-click mechanics. In it, players need to work together to solve the mystery the late Albert Vanderboom has left.

Since its release, the game received critical and commercial success. The PC version has a playscore of 8.4.
