Do you love birds? Do you love cute characters, platforming, and rhythm games? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you’ll be pleased to know that Songbird Sympony will be launching on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on July 25, 2019! Check out the freaking adorable new release date trailer above.
Here’s the setup. You play as cute little bird named Birb (oh my God). Birb wakes up lost and alone in the forest one day and is rescued by a caring older peacock, who takes Birb back to live with him. The other peacocks make fun of Birb for being small and strange, but he doesn’t let it get him down. He soon embarks on a musical journey to discover his true heritage.
As you can see from the trailer, almost everything in the world of Songbird Symphony sways and moves to the music. By solving puzzles and advancing through the various stages, you’ll unlock new notes to sing. You’ll occasionally have to wield your musical arsenal in intense, rhythmic boss battles. We’re promised a large, colorful world to explore, which is packed with secrets.
We’re already sold, but here are the official game features from publisher PQube for good measure:
