Formerly an Xbox One exclusive, Super Lucky’s Tale is coming to the Nintendo Switch. But this isn’t the same game you played 2018.
New and Super
Playful Studios calls New Super Lucky’s Tale a “total reimagining” of the game that preceded it. The fun action/platformer is touted as being improved in just about every way you can think of.
“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.”Playful Studios press release
