Wii U rhythm game Tadpole Treble announced for Switch


Although the Wii U had a short life, it was home to more than a few fantastic games. Tadpole Treble was one of those games, and like many before it, it’s now swimming towards the Nintendo Switch pond. Announced via a delightfully catchy new song, Tadpole Treble Encore sees the original track rehydrated and polished with new content added that is sure to be refreshing.

Tadpole Treble Encore was developed by the minds of Bitfinity and directed by the creator of the beloved Nintendo-centric webcomic Brawl in the Family. The splashy rhythm-action game sees a tadpole named Baton on a light-hearted, musical journey home. She’ll encounter a variety of obstacles and enemies to overcome during her adventures, as well as a unique group of aquatic (and semi-aquatic) friends and foes, all against the backdrop of aquatic scores!

As with the game’s WiiU release, the title features dozens of songs, including six all-sung tracks, and a slew of content for amphibians looking for high scores – or humans, if you’re one of them. The game’s Driver Mode is also back, which allows players to create their own scenes with all sorts of obstacles and instruments. The Switch version will include higher resolution assets, new unlockables, a brand new scene and, of course, handheld play!

Tadpole Treble Encore will be hitting the Switch eShop on January 21, and as the song in the trailer says, “if you want something original and new—it’s true—then Tadpole Treble Encore is for you.” ! A-boopity-boop.
