Lucky’s second chance: New Super Lucky’s Tale gets November 8 Switch launch

New Super Lucky's Tale

New Super Lucky’s Tale, a revamped, reimagined take on 2017’s ill-fated Super Lucky’s Tale, will be available on Switch on November 8th, 2019, making for a pretty quick turnaround from its E3 reveal. Playful Studios announced this date alongside a new trailer and a few other details in a press release. You can watch the trailer and read the release below.

McKinney, TX – July 29, 2019 – Playful Studios has announced that New Super Lucky’s Tale, the adorable 3D adventure platformer, will launch globally on Nintendo Switch at physical retailers and digitally via the Nintendo eShop on November 8, 2019.

New Super Lucky’s Tale is a love letter to classic 3D platformers, with tons of collectibles to gather, rewarding secrets to discover, memorable characters to meet, and stylish costumes to show off. Climb incredible heights, jump agilely over danger, burrow deep underground, and explore amazing worlds on an epic quest to rescue the Book of Ages from the nefarious Jinx and his Kitty Litter underlings!

A challenging delight for players of all ages and skill levels, New Super Lucky’s Tale features an incredible variety of gameplay with expansive hubs, story-based adventure levels, 2D side-scrolling challenges, rewarding mini-games, mind-bending puzzles and thrilling boss battles.

I am ever-so-cautiously optimistic for this one. What about you? I am weary after the original’s lackluster reception, but the game really does seem to have received a loving resurrection. Better controls, reimagined levels, and a more vibrant look will all hopefully come together to make a much more worthwhile game than its predecessor.
