90s-inspired Turn-Based Adventure Game Echo Generation Arrives on Nintendo Switch

Echo Generation, the turn-based adventure game from Cococucumber, brings a wave of 90s nostalgia as it launches on Nintendo Switch, saving the suburb from shocking secrets.

Strange things are stirring in Maple Town. What should have been another quiet summer filled with reruns of ‘Rascal and Rosky’ transforms into a supernatural adventure starring an unlikely trio. An inexplicable crash in the cornfields leads to bizarre occurrences popping up all over town. The weirdest part? No adults seem to notice.

Check out the Nintendo Switch release trailer below:

Determined to get to the bottom of it, Dylan and friends decide it’s time to put a pause on the filming of their first movie, “Alien Skin Eaters.” Why? To do the only logical thing – solve some mysteries once and for all.

You explore every inch of the local suburbs for clues, talking to residents (including the squirrels!), visiting the spooky pet cemetery, the rusty junkyard, and even the VHS rental store. The adventure is fraught with danger as you battle a monster truck, fire-spitting animatronics, a gargantuan worm, a zombie werewolf, and other terrors. Trusty pets can be recruited for the ride, proving invaluable allies in the quest.

In turn-based battles, you can level up their party’s stats, recover lost items, and uncover a top-secret conspiracy, all while revealing a secret connecting Dylan to the strange and paranormal. The game’s colorful voxel art and nostalgic storyline pull at the heartstrings, reminiscent of classic coming-of-age films and horror novels from the 80s and 90s. This atmosphere is enhanced by dark synthwave tunes from an original soundtrack composed by Pusher, creating a world that is both uncannily atmospheric and playfully creepy.

Grab your Switch and embark on an epic adventure filled with action and supernatural,” said Martin Gauvreau, Game Director of Echo Generation. “Get ready to meet talking animals, venture into top-secret labs, and unravel a conspiracy in what feels like the most unforgettable – and nostalgic – summer since we were kids.”
