This week, Lumo is making its debut on Switch courtesy of Rising Star Games. Get a look at some footage below.

The isometric adventure game will be hitting the European eShop on November 16th for £29.99 and will need 3.1 GB for your Switch, the game’s date for overseas is still not finalized at this point it seems. Here is a quick synopsis of the upcoming game from GoNintendo:

“As a contemporary take on the long-lost isometric platform genre, Lumo can be enjoyed by anyone looking for an absorbing, challenging and rewarding adventure. But for those who lived through the golden age of videogames – the 80s and early 90s – or know about the games and culture from that time, layer upon layer of nods, winks and touches to those times help build upon an experience that’s as heart-warming as it is exciting!”

Last month, news broke that Lumo is coming to Switch. We initially assumed that it would be digital-only, but that won’t be the case after all.

Amazon currently has a listing up for a physical version of Lumo on Switch, boxart and all. A tentative October 31 release date and $30 price point are included on the page.

We also have further confirmation that 88Heroes is getting a physical release on Switch. It will also cost $30, and is listed on Amazon for $30. 

Isometric adventure game Lumo is making its way to Switch. In a tweet sent out today, creator Garth Noyce showed the game running on the system.

Noyce later said that Lumo’s upcoming Switch release is “basically identical to the PS4 version. Including the post (bloom, ssao etc). Feels fantastic playing it handheld”.

We’ve included more details about Lumo as well as a trailer below.
