TOKYO, July 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ubitus K.K. (hereinafter Ubitus), a world-leading cloud gaming provider, offers its cloud gaming solution for Focus Home Interactive to release its classic adventure title A Plague Tale: Innocence – Cloud Version and its sequel A Plague Tale: Requiem – Cloud Version on Nintendo Switch™. Nintendo Switch players in the U.S., Asia and EU can enjoy A Plague Tale: Innocence – Cloud Version on 6th July and should expect A Plague Tale: Requiem – Cloud Version in 2022.
A Plague Tale: Innocence – an award-winning title – has been released in 2019 with positive reviews from critics and players. On 6th July, Nintendo Switch players in North America, Asia (Japan, Korea and Hong Kong) and most parts of EU will be able to play the game by downloading a small activation program about 50MB from Nintendo eShop.
Since the cloud version is rendered by high-end GPUs in the cloud, no matter the pictures are delicate Medieval architectures or swarms of rats, all can be vividly streamed and shown on players’ gaming device, providing a smooth gameplay experience. The players never need to worry about storage limitations or the time spent for downloads; once they are ready with their Nintendo Switch and internet connection, the game is on. This ease of activation and cross-platform nature of cloud game allows developers like Asobo Studio and publishers like Focus Home Interactive to reach a broader user base with minimal development and investment.
"I still get the sinking feeling when I come to the scenes with swarms of rats in the game. It is such a pleasure and excitement to collaborate with the talented team from Focus Home Interactive. We are already looking forward to the next cooperation opportunity in the near future," Wesley Kuo, CEO of Ubitus, comments.
"Focus Home Interactive is pleased to use Ubitus technology to bring the best-seller A Plague Tale: Innocence to all players around the world, including the upcoming sequel A Plague Tale: Requiem, on Nintendo Switch," comments John Bert, Deputy CEO at Focus Home Interactive.
