Only on Nintendo Switch can players truly experience Tim’s music in a way he envisioned the project, with players able to experience his music however, or wherever, gamers prefer to play. With up to four fan local multiplayer, players can soar through vocal melodies, sweep each fade, and attack every beat in 35of 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!

In the same year, the headline song, “Wake Me Up” surpassed 1 billion streams on Spotify. Players can download the game and celebrate by searching for AVICII in the Nintendo eShop from 9am local time, or can pre-order the full game via the Nintendo website. Fans can also celebrate Tim’s music and share memories via the brand-new official Discord > discord.gg/avicii.

“Wired’s legacy is in music games and licensing. When we were approached to help finish Tim’s project, it was a perfect match, having already used his songs in past games. It was also at the same time as we were exploring ways to support the mental health of our players and industry with our charity partner, Safe In Our World,” said Leo Zullo, Founder and Managing Director at Wired Productions. “To now see this definitive release of the game, with all music royalties supporting the Tim Bergling Foundation, is a perfect and fitting way to celebrate Tim’s music and legacy. I hope fans and genre players enjoy what the team have be able to do and help keep his legacy alive.”
