Hands-on with the “Avicii Invector Encore Edition” video game for Nintendo Switch
The late Avicii is now receiving the Nintendo Switch treatment with the upcoming video game Avicii Invector Encore Edition a video game inspired by the late EDM icon.
Since the tragic passing of Avicii in 2018, the world of EDM has assembled an incredible collection of tributes. We've seen everything from a star-studded concert to an upcoming museum dedicated to his career.
The standard edition of Avicii Invector was released late last year for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One The Encore Edition, however, features 10 new tracks, including some from Avicii's posthumous album Tim .
Developers Hello There Games offered EDM a hands-on preview of the first five tracks from the upcoming game so we can see what to expect later this year. We have to explore the worlds of his songs “Can't Catch Me”, “Pure Grinding”, “What Would I Change It To”, “The Nights (Avicii By Avicii Remix)” and “Waiting For Love”.
Players take control of a spaceship that travels through various cosmic environments set to the sound of the Swedish EDM icon. In typical rhythm game form, players are tasked with pressing buttons in tune with the selected song in an effort to score points. The melodies are arranged in groups of four. If a player reaches the target percentage of notes struck on all four songs, he unlocks the next group, and so on.
Pressing keys tied to specific parts of the song helps to appreciate the melodies, as they almost dissect the production and put emphasis on the individual pieces that make up the track. For example, a listener may not notice subtle keys in the background of a song, but with gameplay, a player will focus on each note as they are a crucial part of the gameplay.
Avicii Invector Encore Edition will be released on September 8 on Nintendo Switch. For more information and to reserve a copy for yourself, you can go to the game's website here.
