Bitfinity’s Tadpole Treble is coming back for an encore-presentation on Nintendo Switch. It was originally released on the Wii U all the way back in 2016, but is now being ported over to the Switch with even more content than its original outing.
Tadpole Treble Encore will take you on the story-driven musical journey of a young tadpole as she swims, jumps and shoots her way through a series of wild levels across an island in an effort to return home. On her journey, you’ll help her avoid predators like piranhas and cranes, and even get serenaded by a surprisingly Broadway-endowed tadpole in a moonlight rendezvous. There’s a lot of charm in this musical little indie, and its rhythm-based gameplay includes dozen catchy songs that will no doubt get stuck in your head once your journey is through.
Speaking of music, Tadpole Treble even includes its own level editor which doubles as a song maker that will allow you to craft your own tune-based challenge. Have a look at the action in this sing-a-long trailer:
For the Switch release, Bitfinity has added in new unlockables and an entirely new stage that will be exclusive to this new version of the game. You can also enable developer commentary throughout all of the stages to get an insight of how the game came together.
I reviewed the original Wii U release of Tadpole Treble right here on Nintendo Enthusiast back when it was first released. Back then, I said that it was “bursting at the seams with charm” and was an “original and exciting” take on the long-standing genre of rhythm games. As such, I’m looking forward to playing it again on Nintendo Switch, especially to try out whatever that new level is.
Tadpole Treble Encore will tapdance its way onto the Nintendo Switch eShop on January 21, 2021. You can pre-order it now for $8.99.
Here’s one of my favorite songs from the game:
