The critically acclaimed Return of the Obra Dinn is coming to consoles later this year.

News came originally as part of yesterday's Nintendo Direct, however developer Lucas Pope has since clarified that the title will be coming to all major console platforms.

The ports are being handled by Warp Digital, which is tasked with converting a 1-bit 800x450 game – a task that Pope noted is "harder than it might look."

From the developer of Papers, Please, Obra Dinn tells the story of a merchant ship that disappeared at sea in 1803, only to return to port four years later without a crew.

Players take the role of an insurance investigator tasked with piecing together what happened and the fate of the sailors on board.

One of the most striking elements of the game was its art style, using a "1-bit" aesthetic.

Return of the Obra Dinn launched on PC last year, and will be coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PS4 this Spring.
