Nintendo has cone again done that thing where it suddenly releases a game with no fanfare or announcements. The Stretchers is now available through the Nintendo Switch eShop in both Europe and Japan. It’s the latest work from Tarsier Studios, the Little Nightmares developer, and it is £17.99/¥2,000. The Japanese version is playable in Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Italian, and Spanish. The European one doesn’t offer Chinese or Japanese language options. Update: It is now also available in North America for $19.99.


The Stretchers follows two paramedics who have to take on various missions to save injured people, Dizzies, who have been hurt as a result of Captain Brain’s nefarious schemes. (Captain Brains, of course, is a mustachioed man with a technologically-advanced top hat that makes people dizzy. In each level, you’ll need to work together to overcome obstacles like trees, locked doors, and trampolines to reach the injured people and get them to your ambulance. Doing well gets you points and the chance to get hidden treasures, and you can customize your medics and their home base after performing well.


Here is the first The Stretchers trailer.
