Additionally, the Nintendo Switch version of the game has a new user interface to work with the Switch hardware and online leaderboards.

Rayark also announced that their piano rhythm title, Deemo, has a new update that adds 5 new tracks and 10 additional tracks have been added to the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Collection.

The original Cytus is available now on iOS and Android devices. Deemo is available now on PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices.

Author’s take: This game looks really good. I’m glad rhythm developers have a console to go to with a touchscreen. Since the Vita is no longer a thing these games could have only able to release on mobile devices.
