When many think of Nintendo, they see a single word pop into their minds: platformers. Nintendo has remained steadfast in its commitment to the platforming genre for decades, even as the gaming landscape has shifted and evolved around them considerably. Third-party and indie developers have long relied on this association too, and have routinely seen the lion’s share of their success on Nintendo consoles come from releasing platforming adventures with mass appeal. As a result of all this, you could say that the watermark for platforming excellence is considerably higher on Nintendo consoles than it is elsewhere, considering the long lineage of quality that already exists. I’m here to tell you that this watermark has been adequately met – and in some ways even exceeded – by New Super Lucky’s Tale.

New Super Lucky’s Tale, Playful’s 3D platformer, is out today on Switch. Get a look at the game’s first half hour below.

Looking to try out New Super Lucky’s Tale ahead of tomorrow’s launch? That’s now possible, as a demo for the 3D platformer has arrived on the Japanese Switch eShop. English is supported.

The demo will likely be offered in other regions soon. That being said, any Switch owner can access the demo right away as long as they create a Japanese Nintendo Account.
