New Super Lucky's Tale Hits Nintendo Switch November 8th
I never played the original VR version of Lucky’s Tale which released exclusively on Oculus Rift, but found Super Lucky’s Tale – the non-VR sequel that hit PC and Xbox One – a fun little distraction. Super bright environments and characters had my kids entranced, even if the controls weren’t quite refined enough to make me fall in love with it the same way.
New Super Lucky’s Tale release will make this probably the most convoluted IP on the market, as it’s releasing exclusively – at least at launch – for the Nintendo Switch and is a top-down reimagining of the original game, with all new levels and cinematics, and with upgrades to nearly every facet of the game, from the art and music to the controls.
Let’s recap to keep this straight. We got Lucky’s Tale in VR on the Oculus Rift in 2016. Then a year later we got Super Lucky’s Tale, a non-VR sequel on PC and Xbox One. Now this November there’s New Super Lucky’s Tale is a reimagining of the first game, but non-VR and exclusive to the Switch…
I bet the next version is a kart racer.
All that aside, it looks like New Super Lucky’s Tale will be a great fit for the Switch, with simple but bright graphics and gameplay that’s easy enough to take in bite-sized sections or stretch into a couple hours of play.
I’m really interested in seeing how the revamped controls fare, because that was really the only reason I wasn’t completely in love with the Xbox One release.
Here’s the press release.
