New Super Lucky's Tale brings reworked adventure to Nintendo Switch this year

The 3D platformer was last seen on Steam and Xbox One.

Playful Studios is hard at work on New Super Lucky's Tale, a "total reimagining" of the 3D platformer of a similar name. It is due to arrive on Nintendo Switch later this year as a digital download.

"We always planned to bring Lucky to Nintendo Switch – it's a fantastic console and the perfect fit for Lucky's adventures," said Paul Bettner, founder and CEO of Playful Studios. "But we realized we had a great opportunity to improve on everything that has come before. Led by feedback from our passionate community, New Super Lucky's Tale is a platforming adventure that measures up to the most beloved games of the genre and the best way to experience Lucky's story yet."

Microsoft published the game when it appeared on Xbox One, so perhaps the hyperbole has some basis? The game stars a fox who is drawn into the Book of Ages and must defeat a villain named Jinx in order to return home. Along the way, he'll meet friends and adversaries, including "the Kitty Litter."

As per the developer, features players should expect in this newer take on the adventure include:
  • Significant redesigns for most of the game’s levels, with new environments, layouts, puzzles, secrets, quests, creatures, minigames and more, as well as new tutorial sections.

  • New and upgraded moves like the slide and enhanced burrow, as well as more precise and responsive controls overall.

  • Fully rotatable in-game camera, immensely improving player freedom and exploration.

  • Expanded level progression system to allow players to more freely tackle stages and challenges in whichever order they choose.

  • New story cinematics, characters and dialogue from start to finish.

  • Numerous improvements to the game’s art, lighting, UI, sound, music and more.
The game is on display at this year's E3, so maybe check it out if you're fortunate enough to be in attendance. You can also check out the announcement trailer, embedded above, if you would like to see Lucky in action.
