Next week, the indie event Tokyo Sandbox will be held in Japan. A new game that we didn’t know was planned for Switch previously will be at the event. Videokid, developed by PixelTrip Studios, is now confirmed for the console.

Videokid is an arcade style skate game that’s set in a 1980s neighborhood. You’ll be performing skate moves through hazardous streets, avoid being busted by the cops, and pulling off combos.

Videokid currently does not have a release date on Switch. We have further information and a trailer below.
