CIRCLE Entertainment is delighted to confirm that Arrest of a stone Buddha, the latest title from developer yeo, arrives on Nintendo Switch globally (North America, Europe / Australia, Japan) on 21st May. It’ll be priced at $14.99USD / €14.99 / 1500JP¥, but there’ll be a 10% discount in the opening week.

Arrest of a stone Buddha is the latest unique blend of action and storytelling from yeo, following his previous title The friends of Ringo Ishikawa.

In Arrest of a stone Buddha, a hitman is searching for an answer in 1970s France.

As a professional killer you’ll live through November 1976; when taking on enemies you’re fast and lucky enough so you don’t need to plan your actions.

You kill with one shot and you never miss. When you run out of ammo you just throw a gun away.

You can disarm any enemy and use any weapon; when it’s time to get out you just use a vehicle nearby.

Between jobs you have an apartment in the historical center of the city.

When you want to eat you go to a cafe, and you can visit a museum or a cinema when you’re looking for entertainment.

And you have a lover when that need arises. Around the intense action there is the mundane, as you seek to pass your days.

All along there is an important question that’s longing for an answer.


  • Stylish and mood-setting pixel-based visuals.
  • Fast gunplay action as you take down waves of enemies.
  • Explore in quiet moments; go to the cinema, café, museum, meet a lover or stay at homealone.
