Voxel vacation adventure (and Digital Foundry favourite) The Touryst – developed by Shin’en Multimedia, the team behind acclaimed Switch racer Fast RMX – is making its way to PlayStation on 9th September, according to a new listing on the PlayStation Store.
Details regarding the PlayStation version are limited – there’s a release date and description and that’s about it – but The Touryst (which debuted on Switch in 2019 before heading to Xbox and PC the following year) remains a fun little excursion, depositing players on the glorious Monument Islands holiday resort for a spot of sun, sea, and exploration-driven adventure.
On a basic level, the goal is to progress from island to island – all rendered with an appealing, retro-inspired voxel art style, and each with its own theme – in order to infiltrate the mysterious monuments strewn around and solve the mix of puzzles and platform challenges within.
The real pleasure, though, comes from leisurely hopping between islands and indulging in The Touryst’s wealth of silly side quests and mini-game-style activities – including surfing, spelunking, scuba diving, photography, and more. It’s a delightful little thing, exuding some wonderfully relaxing holiday vibes.
Currently, the only information on The Touryst’s PlayStation release is the aforementioned store page, but I’ve contacted Shin’en Multimedia to find out more.
