Mediterranean adventure Rime is coming out on May 26, developer Tequila Works announced today.

First announced in 2013 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, the Tequila Works title is now also coming out on Windows PC and Xbox One. Sony pulled out of its exclusivity deal following the development's long gestation period. Rime will be released May 26 on those three platforms, both digitally and at retail, for $29.99 in the U.S., £29.99 in the U.K. and €34.99 in Europe.

A Nintendo Switch version of Rime is also in development. It will be released “later this summer,” according to a news release from Tequila Works and co-publishers Grey Box and Six Foot. The Switch version will cost extra — $39.99 in the U.S., £39.99 in the U.K. and €44.99 in Europe. It will also be available in physical and digital versions.

Rime is a pretty Zelda-esque game in which a boy explores an island, encountering creatures and puzzles along the way. You can see the most recent trailer here.

Correction: Rime’s release date is May 26, not April 26. We’ve edited the article to reflect this, and to add information about pricing as well as Rime’s Nintendo Switch version.

Update: Asked about the price increase for the Nintendo Switch version of Rime, a representative for Grey Box sent Polygon the following statement: “We set prices for our products based on the costs of development and costs of manufacturing for each specific platform.”
