One of the new reveals at today’s Nintendo Direct was an adventure game called Lorelei and the Laser Eyes. The new title will launch on Switch as a timed console exclusive in 2023.

The Direct’s narrator calls the game a modern spin on point-and-click adventure games, and the inspiration is obvious in the gameplay. The trailer doesn’t give much away about the story, but it appears that the main character is a mysterious woman (an onscreen letter refers to “Signorina Weiss,” but it’s not clear if that’s her). The trailer also says the game is a murder mystery.

Lorelei was developed by Simogo, the studio behind Sayonara Wild Hearts. Annapurna is publishing it as part of the companies’ multi-year partnership.
