The adventure goes on…
The beloved classic adventure series Syberia has already found a new home on the Nintendo Switch, but something has been missing. The 3rd chapter, Syberia 3, which was released 12 years after its previous installment on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, has now finally been revealed by developer Microïds to land on the hybrid console on October 18th this year!!
The original Syberia was released back in 2002 to critical acclaim, praised for its atmosphere, characters, writing, and steampunk-like graphics, followed by a successful sequel in 2004 that was nominated by GameSpot as “Best Adventure Game”, but ultimately lost to Myst IV: Revelation.
For a long time, it seemed like Kate’s story had come to an end, but in 2012, a new chapter was confirmed to be in the works. Syberia 3 was then finally released in 2017, sadly to less than stellar reviews, with many series veterans being disappointed with everything from the puzzles to the characters and story. Some felt, that Syberia was a product of its time, and had maybe been best left in the past. I don’t personally have much nostalgia for the first two games, so despite some bugs and an overall lacking performance on PS4, I liked Syberia 3, and can’t wait to add it to my collection on Switch later this fall.
How about you? Did you play Syberia 3 when it first launched a year ago? Are you excited to pick it up for Switch? Please let us know, and stay tuned for our coming review!
