Circle Entertainment and acttil have announced that the Rayark developed rhythm game Cytus α is coming to Nintendo Switch digitally via eShop on April 25 and on May 14 in the physical format from PM Studios.

To celebrate the release of Cytus α on Nintendo Switch, the initial release of the retail version will include a special soundtrack CD, featuring music from [Chapter Ω], so you can jam out to some of Cytus α’s jams in your car, on your computer, or maybe even your Sony Discman.

Cytus α is an immersive rhythm game that blends story with over 200 playable tracks from the original Cytus game. Additionally, throughout the game players will notice that some tracks even have rearranged versions that they can experience. Players have the option to use the Nintendo Switch’s unique touch controls to hit notes for maximum control. There is also an online mode for players to engage in score battles with other rhythm fanatics.

The original Cytus is available now on iOS and Android devices.
