Shin’en Multimedia — the company behind the wonderful Fast RMX and Art of Balance — have a brand new game coming to Switch, and it looks amazing.

The Touryst looks to be a voxel-based sandbox adventure game with a wide variety of activities, like surfing, spelunking, kayaking, wandering around town, or just relaxing by the beach. It’s the first new game from Shin’en since the Switch launched, with Fast RMX and Art of Balance both being remastered versions of previous releases.

The Touryst will launch in November of this year. You can read the full description and watch the trailer below.
