Truly stoked to share this epic news with y’all: get ready for six more weeks of winter, as we’re finally bringing our debut production Jotun to the Nintendo Switch! Jotun: Valhalla Edition drops on the vaunted console worldwide on April 27th, 2018!
Have a gander at the launch trailer, why dontcha?
Needless to say, we’re very excited to be bringing our first game to the Switch – we’re all life-long Nintendo fans over here, and have been in absolute lurve with the Switch since launch.
We wanted to take the time and make sure we were bringing the best possible version of Jotun to the system. Happily, the Switch has the horsepower to showcase Jotun in all its hand-drawn glory, even in handheld mode, so those who played the Wii U version especially will notice the great job the team has done remastering the graphics for the Switch release. Also, since we play a lot with scale in Jotun, Thora often being dwarfed by titanic bosses, we had to rework some of the gameplay to allow for play on a potentially much smaller screen.
We hope you’re all stoked to play the game on the Switch and, say, to beat Valhalla Mode without using God Powers *while commuting to work*!
We’re so happy to finally have one of our games on the Switch that we’ll be holding drawings to win Jotun Switch codes and other sweet goodies! Recommend you stay tuned to our social channels between now and launch day, is all I’m sayin’…
Not the least excited to finally have one of our games on a portable system is our own fearless leader, Will. Said he: “This brings me way back – one of my earliest gaming memories is passing the Game Boy back and forth with my brothers during road trips.”
Fun fact: I was actually able to track down vintage footage of those road trips too! Behold:
Who would’ve thought? It figures.
So stay frosty, y’all! Jotun is out on Switch in two weeks! Pre-purchase links forthcoming.
