Giant Sparrow’s second title, What Remains of Edith Finch, will be coming to Xbox One.
Originally releasing for PlayStation 4 and PC on April 25th this year, What Remains of Edith Finch will be available for Xbox One on July 19th. The developer, Giant Sparrow, along with Xbox celebrated the forthcoming title with a small announcement video.
Currently the game is available for PS4 and PC for $19.99, so you can expect to look for a similar price point come next week when the game launches. This is the second game the Giant Sparrow has released, the first being The Unfinished Swan back in 2012 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, before eventually making its way to PS4 in 2014.
It’s clear that Giant Sparrow can successfully tell a strong, powerful, yet short narrative experience. At the 2013 BAFTA awards, Giant Sparrow took home two awards for Game Innovation and Best Debut Game for their work on The Unfinished Swan.
While The Unfinished Swan was published alongside Sony Computer Entertainmet, What Remains of Edith Finch was published by Annapurna Interactive, which is an american motion picture company. This is the first game that Annapurna Interactive has published, and by not partnering with Sony, this essentially allows Giant Sparrow the ability to port the game to other platforms.
What Remains of Edith Finch tells a collection of short stories about a cursed family from Washington State. As Edith Finch, you must uncover and connect the clues as to why you are the last surviving member of your family, with stories ranging from as early as the early 1900s to present day.
The game has been well received since its launch a couple months ago. The game currently sits at 88 and 89 for the PS4 and PC versions, respectively, with critics praising the game for its strong narrative structure.
