Previously known as Trading Time: A Croak Tale, the newly rebranded Time on Frog Island â€“ a name publisher Merge Games believes better suits the experience â€“ will now be launching physically as well as digitally.
Those who played Linkâ€™s Awakening may notice a similarity with the premise.
After washing on a strange island, our sea dog protagonist sets about repairing their ship before finding a way home. Thereâ€™s just one setback â€“ the island’s inhabitants, peculiar frog-like people, donâ€™t speak the same language as our downtrodden hero. To procure the required materials, theyâ€™ll have to establish a network of trade deals â€“ with puzzles and secrets to find along the way.
Fishing, farming and different ways to complete trades are all promised.
Itâ€™s due this summer, with physical releases priced Â£29.99 on Switch and Â£24.99 on PS4, PS5 and Xbox One. Thereâ€™s no word on digital pricing yet.
And yes, that headline is a reference to the greatest GameCube game of all time.
