MO: Astray to Hit Nintendo Switch; Launches Brand-New Gameplay Modes
The video previews brand-new gameplay modes for MO: Astray, which has received lots of rave reviews from around the world. At the end of the clip is a hidden easter egg, which suggests that the game will soon be available on the Nintendo Switch console.
In order to provide players with more enjoyment and challenges in the game, the development team, Archpray Games, will add “Timed Mode” and “Disaster Mode” to MO: Astray during the spring.
“Timed Mode” will display the players’ gameplay time, as well as the start and end time within quests. Via specially designed interfaces and mechanisms, players will have a chance to take on a “speed run”, where players try to complete the game in the shortest time possible, comparing their runs with players from around the world to see who’s the best.
For players who have already completed quests, they’ll be able to face even more difficult gameplay content including obstacles, game values, puzzles, and other evident changes. During the clip, Game Director Yung-Ting Lee jokingly suggests that it’s like MO has fallen into a completely evil, sinister environment. When players are playing this mode they’ll be able to experience the “evil” of the development team when they had initially imagined the quests by putting it back in the game. This will bring with it a much more intense difficulty level.
