In addition to this excitINK news, you’ll also be thrilled to hear that for the first time ever you’ll be able to play INK with a friend, thanks to an all-new local 2-player mode created exclusively for the Nintendo Switch version!

Players in Europe can pre-order INK now from the Nintendo Switch eShop to enjoy a 20% discount on the launch price.

About the game

The world’s first splatformer is here! INK is a fast-paced platformer with a twist – levels are invisible and must be splattered with brightly colored paint before they can be seen!

Players can reveal levels in a variety of ways: double-jumping, wall sliding or squishing an enemy all create splashes and splodges. Even failing is useful – when your blocky character perishes it explodes in a shower of color, painting the surrounding area to reveal more of the level for your next try!

Key Features

  • Test your platforming skills across 75 INKgeniously designed levels!
  • Jump, squish, slide and die to splatter brightly colored paint and uncover your surroundings!
  • Splat enemies, dodge missiles, and take down super-challenging bosses!
  • Local 2-player mode: Take on INK with a friend, exclusive to Nintendo Switch (supports split Joy-Con play)
  • 20 deviously hidden coins to find and collect!
  • Ambient and atmospheric original soundtrack by Vincent Rubinetti
  • Precision platforming makes INK a perfect challenge for speedrunners
