The Artistic Platformer GRIS Was One of 2018’s Most Acclaimed Games
Indie platformer GRIS will physically launch for the Nintendo Switch at $34.99 USD and pre-orders went live on Tuesday. There’s also a limited edition vinyl of the game’s soundtrack that became available for pre-order on the same day.

Additionally, there’s two different vinyl editions of the soundtrack: the Open Edition (which costs $34.99) and the Deluxe Edition (which costs $49.99).
