If you've been hoping for a Grime console release, there's some good news for you. Developer Clover Bite has shared some information regarding Grime console release plans, as well as what's coming up for the Metroidvania in future patches.
When can we expect a Grime console release?
In a Reddit dev post, Clover Bite says that it has plans to release Grime for consoles in the future. However, the developer says it has "nothing to announce just yet". Seems like you're going to have to wait just a little longer if you want to play Grime on console, but the fact that there are plans in the works at all is encouraging. Hopefully, Clover Bite will have more to share on this in the near future.
As well as Grime console release plans, Clover Bite also shared some of the stuff that's coming to the Metroidvania platformer in future patches. In the next patch, the devs intend to switch Grime's optional boss to a mandatory one due to a traversal ability "making it a walk in the park". The next patch will also fix some bugged achievements, add in a new weapon (that was accidentally removed from the game in the first place), and add extra visual clarity for the Pull ability when it's used on enemies.
What features will be added in future Grime updates?
In the more distant future, Grime developer Clover Bite says it's still "monitoring the fast travel situation". The devs say they may end up adding fast travel for the City area in order to facilitate easier weapon upgrades and material farming. There may also be some new lore in conjunction with this feature. Clover Bite says it's also looking into respec and weapon moveset testing. That feature is still early in the planning stages, however; the devs say they're "going to try to figure this one out", and more information will be available in the future.
If you're yet to try out Grime, it's a Metroidvania platformer in which you "crush your foes with living weapons", then consume them to grow stronger. If you like Metroidvanias and you're not too squeamish about anatomical horror, Grime should definitely be on your radar. You can grab it via Steam right now. Hopefully, we'll get a Grime console release date in the not too long as well.
