SANTA CLARA, Calif., (August 20, 2019) –  Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., in partnership with critically acclaimed studio Double Fine Productions, today launched RAD™ for Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC on Steam®

“We’ve worked tirelessly for this moment and we’re excited to finally take players on this RAD journey with us,” said Lee Petty, Project Lead at Double Fine Productions. “There is so much to explore in this game and we hope fans will jump in over and over again to experience everything it has to offer.”

In RAD, players take on the role of a teenage protagonist who must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing toxic wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. It’s here that they’ll find the solution to heal the world, and transform the cracked, barren landscape into a lush source of new life. But humanity’s future comes at great personal cost, as the deeper they journey into unknown lands, the more they will expose themselves to gnarly toxins which will wreak havoc on their fragile human form.

The fate of the world depends on the player, their trusty bat, and whatever strange new abilities they gain as the world around them ravages their body — twisting and mutating them into something far less than human, but far more powerful.

“Teaming up with Double Fine to bring RAD to life has been a great treat for us,” said Randy Le, Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Get ready for the wildest adventure wandering the wasteland!”
