Inkle is bringing two of its acclaimed narrative adventures to Nintendo Switch. 80 Days will launch for the console on October 1st, while Heaven's Vault will come to Nintendo's hybrid in early 2020.

A loose adaptation of Jules Verne's classic novel Around The World In 80 Days, Inkle's 80 Days sees you take control of Phileas Fogg's valet Passepartout. It's your role to help Fogg navigate the world in 80 days and win a wager. As with other Inkle games, 80 Days is a text adventure with beautifully-drawn backdrops and thousands of potential branches to follow. You'll also have to manage Fogg's finances and make sure he doesn't go broke. You can check out TechRaptor's Coverage Club feature on the game for more info.

Heaven's Vault is also a narrative adventure, but with a key twist. You play as archaeologist Aliya Elasra, who's trying to track down a missing academic. Aided by her faithful robot companion Six, Aliya must decipher an ancient language to solve a historical mystery and discover the truth behind the academic's disappearance. TechRaptor's Sam was a big fan of this game, and its deliberate pace seems like a perfect choice for the Switch.

80 Days lands on Nintendo's shores on October 1st this year. We still don't have a concrete release date for Heaven's Vault on the Switch yet, so stay posted for more info on that one. In the meantime, if you'd like to stay informed, you can check out the official Inkle website. The studio is also on Twitter and Facebook if you want to follow the socials. 80 Days and Heaven's Vault are lovely little time-sinks, so we're looking forward to getting our mitts on them when they do land on the Switch.
