After the controversy of RiME’s Switch version costing more than the other versions of the game, a new development has emerged.

The following was shared by the publisher


First off, the digital version of RiME on Nintendo Switch will now cost $29.99 / €34.99 / £29.99, the same price as the game on other platforms. So, that’s straightforward enough.

For the Nintendo Switch version of RiME, all physical copies will include a printed code for a download of the complete, beautiful soundtrack by David García (a sample of which you can find here). You will be able to download the music via Bandcamp in one of the multiple high-quality formats. The soundtrack is planned on being sold separately for $10 in the US (and equivalent prices elsewhere), and so the value you’re going to get out of this will be the same as somebody who purchased a different version of RiME, and then bought the soundtrack.

This isn’t a total change but is one that definitely works out well for both sides. The digital version has price parity, and the physical version has bonus content that makes it stand out more. In a way, it is a win/win situation.
