Phoenix, AZ – 12 November, 2021: Explore the mysteries of the ocean’s depths in E-Line Media’s single-player narrative adventure Beyond Blue, available now on Nintendo Switch. Play as Mirai, a deep-sea explorer and scientist, and experience the wonder of the world beneath the waves, wherever you are.



Made in partnership with BBC Studios, OceanX Media and some of science’s leading ocean experts, Beyond Blue showcases the majesty of the ocean and its inhabitants, crafting an experience that is both exciting and also acts as a window into real-world issues. 

About Beyond Blue
Set against the near-future backdrop of Earth’s oceans, Beyond Blue features the scientific support of real-world exploration and outreach initiative, OceanX, and embraces its minimally invasive exploration techniques. It tells the story of a crew of scientists - led by oceanographers Mirai and André - who set out to test their “Ocean Sense Network,” which has the power to literally shine a light on the unexplored depths of the ocean as they unravel its endless mysteries.

Focusing on the Western Pacific Ocean amid a large multispecies gathering of cetaceans and other creatures, players will step into the shoes (and flippers) of Mirai, as they use technology to better understand the urgent threats facing these blue depths. 

At the same time, Beyond Blue features never-before-seen footage licensed from BBC Studios’ Blue Planet II, expanding upon the game’s story and educating players about the social and emotional lives of these whales - the creatures with the biggest brains on the planet.

Beyond Blue Features:
  • An evocative narrative with full voice cast - Anna Akana (YouTube), Mira Furlan (Lost, Babylon 5), Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Black Sails, Hotel Rwanda), and Ally Maki (Toy Story 4)
  • Exploration and adventure within a realistic untouched world
  • Sixteen unique mini-documentaries called Ocean Insights that feature original footage and interviews with science’s leading ocean experts
  • Photo mode
Beyond Blue is available for £15.09 GBP / $25.20 AUD  / €16.79 EUR on Nintendo Switch.
Beyond Blue is also available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and through the Apple Arcade subscription service, playable across compatible iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV devices.
