Devolver Digital has announced today that the award-winning GRIS is finally coming to Xbox consoles, four years after it first debuted for PC and Nintendo Switch in 2018. It's an Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S release (no sign of Xbox One here), and it'll be arriving next week on Tuesday, December 13th.
If you've never heard of it, our friends at Nintendo Life described GRIS as being "one of the most emotional pieces of interactive art you’ll ever play" in their 9/10 review, even going as far as calling it "a masterpiece".
Here's the official description from Devolver Digital:
"Gris is a hopeful young girl lost in her own world, dealing with a painful experience in her life. Her journey through sorrow is manifested in her dress, which grants new abilities to better navigate her faded reality. As the story unfolds, Gris will grow emotionally and see her world in a different way, revealing new paths to explore using her new abilities.
GRIS is a serene and evocative experience, free of danger, frustration or death. Players will explore a meticulously designed world brought to life with delicate art, detailed animation, and an elegant original score. Through the game light puzzles, platforming sequences, and optional skill-based challenges will reveal themselves as more of Gris’s world becomes accessible."
GRIS has been jumping around various platforms over the past few years, arriving for iOS and PlayStation 4 in 2019 before heading to Android in 2020, but we've never seen it crop up on Xbox until now. It's about time!
Better yet, the Xbox Series X version runs at 4K/60FPS or 2K/120FPS (it's up to you), while the Xbox Series S version also boasts the same 2K resolution with support for 120 frames per-second!
