Monomals, a rhythm puzzle platformer coming to the Nintendo Switch, has been announced to be launching on the platform on October 21, just two weeks from now. Players will take part in a big music contest between the world's best animal DJ's armed with a fishing rod and a plug to help the DJs catch all the Monomals and create your own music in the MonoMaker.
Player's will be able to choose from their favorite animal DJ: Retro Rabbit, Funky Frog, Techno Tiger or Rocky Rhino. There are over 28 courses to play through, along with arena battles and plenty of opportunities to catch some Monomals. There are apparently dozens of collectibles and power-ups as well, so players will be able to make some sick beats in the MonoMaker, which can be used to create their own music.
Players will be able to listen to their own created music while they play, and you'll be able to switch between music genres and listen to different styles of your own music. You'll also be able to compete in the offline Hot 99 chart and go platinum, you can share your music online for others to download, and join weekly online contests to see who the best musician really is.
Interestingly, the game has already been released for the Apple Arcade back in 2019, but this Nintendo Switch release (which can be pre-ordered for $16.99) now apparently has "incredible console-quality graphics" and is coming to an actual games console, so it should be a better playing experience overall. We'll see.
If you're interested in playing some similar games while you wait for Monomals to release on the Nintendo Switch, there's Viola: The Heroine's Melody, a musical platformer/JRPG, Vesper, a puzzle platformer, and Grobo, a puzzle platformer with interesting gravity mechanics.
