The developers behind Sonic Mania – known as Evening Star – just unveiled Penny’s Big Breakaway, a new 3D platformer for Switch. It will be seeing release in early 2024 with Private Division publishing.

Ready. Set. YO! Join Penny & Yo-Yo in a kinetic 3D platformer bursting with innovative gameplay! Showcase your catalog of tricks and chain impressive combos to deliver Penny & Yo-Yo’s perfect breakout performance. Take the stage with this vibrant pair in Penny’s Big Breakaway.

Penny is a street performer with big dreams; she has her own spin on what it takes to be a star! When Eddie the Emperor calls for new Palace Court Performers, Penny gets herself tangled in an audition she’ll never forget. A strange encounter with a Cosmic String transforms Penny’s Yo-Yo into a living creature with an appetite for snacks—and mayhem!
