Cytus Alpha Launches 25th April On Nintendo Switch eShop In North America

PM Studios and Acttil have confirmed that their rhythm-based game Cytus Alpha will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop on 25th April. If you are holding out for a physical copy, that will arrive on 14th May and first print editions come with a “CD featuring music from “Chapter Omega” packaged with the game in an exclusive box.” If you live in Europe I’m afraid to say that the team hasn’t decided on a release date, but it is coming.


Cytus Alpha is a rhythm game featuring a futuristic graphical style, which includes more than 200 songs from the original Cytus and new tracks created for Cytus Alpha. Players will use the Nintendo Switch’s unique Touch controls to hit notes with maximum control. There is also an online mode, where players can engage in score battles with other rhythm fanatics.

Key Features

  • Music: More than 200 tracks from the original release with over 400 charts. The game also includes additional unreleased songs, including exclusive songs from Cytus Omega, which are available in Chapter Omega! and collaborations from Chapter Omega!
  • Visuals: Mesmerizing futuristic graphics with a new UI developed specifically for Nintendo Switch!
  • Story: An in-depth data system for diving into even deeper story engagement!
  • Difficulty: Easy and Hard modes to satisfy beginners and veteran rhythm game players alike, and various musical tastes such as pop, jazz, trance, hardcore and more!



  1. I’m pretty excited for this, but I’m a bit wary of how this game translated to the smaller size of the Switch’s screen.

    At the very least, it can’t be as bad as the PSVita port of the original Cytus
