Chicory: A Colorful Tale is now available on Nintendo Switch with revised control methods.

Announced by surprise last night during the Nintendo Indie Showcase, the Switch version features touch and motion controls that could dramatically change the way the game plays.

The Zelda-like adventure includes a magic brush that is used to interact with the world and solve puzzles.

Now this brush can be controlled via the touchscreen or motion control using the Joy-Con, which is more direct than using the analog sticks of the PlayStation version.

There’s also a two-player co-op mode using both Joy-Cons. Gamepad controls are also available.

The game also uses HD Rumble, where different paintable surfaces and brush styles produce different rumble effects.

Lead Developer Greg Lobanov tweeted, “Most of my effort has gone into creating a ton of control variations. Touch controls of course, and there’s also a really fun motion control setting if you’re using a detached Joy-Con. I personally recommend it!
