Video games publisher Wired Productions and developer Hello There Games have announced that the rhythm-action game, AVICII Invector, is now available worldwide on Nintendo Switch™ for the first time. This release is in celebration of the late performer, producer, and songwriter Tim “AVICII” on what would have been his 31st birthday.
In addition to the launch on Nintendo Switch, AVICII Invector is now available alongside the AVICII Invector Encore Edition on the Nintendo eShop and for physical retail. For the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, which features 10 new tracks, including music from AVICII’s posthumous album, “Tim,” this game is available for purchase at a launch SRP of £24.99.
All new tracks to debut on the Encore Edition are now also available to purchase as two separate Song Packs for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One family of devices and the Windows PC via Steam®.
For players who want to try the game for free, the AVICII Invector Nintendo Switch demo is still available to download on the Nintendo eShop for no cost, which includes four tracks from the list of 35 songs. However, personal scores made in the demo will not transfer over to the full retail game.

Only on Nintendo Switch can players truly experience Tim’s music in a way he envisioned the project. With up to four-player local multiplayer, fans can soar through vocal melodies, sweep each fade, and attack every beat in 35 of AVICII’s biggest hits. This really is the definitive way to play AVICII’s music, with all music royalties supporting suicide awareness through the Tim Bergling Foundation. Of course, Tim didn’t just want to create a game that celebrated his music; he wanted to create an incredible rhythm game, inspired by his love from the genre—and with a Metacritic score over 80%, the hype is real!
