The accolades trailer for New Super Lucky’s Tale is now out and sitting through the superlatives of how this game is so darn good; I dropped to my knees in tears as I haven’t played it.
Fear not, me: it’s coming to the PlayStation 4 (and Xbox One if you swing that way).
Enough about you, Mr Knight, why should I be excited about New Super Lucky’s Tale?
Why the devil not?
Muster up any of those joyous memories of 3D platformers such as Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Spyro the Dragon or Jenga (if you’re imaginative), and you’ll get the idea: this game is a love letter to classics such as these, except for Jenga.
New Super Lucky’s Tale is so pretty, I feel the cunning of the fox has played a level 12 rogue class deception card, or maybe it’s because Playful Studios have done a ruddy marvellous job on it, and with PQube publishing… it’s no wonder there’s an accolades video.
I wish I was on it with some pithy fox comment.
If you think you’ve got the cojones to retrieve the Book of Ages from Jinx and Kitty Litter, and yearning for a world that will make you fart rainbows (in real-life), look no further than New Super Lucky’s Tale.
Now I know that you’re desperate for my review, as am I, but you’ll have to sit crossed legged until I’m able to get it.
In the meantime, have a look at this assault of vibrant colours, cool characters and impressive level design:
New Super Lucky’s Tale is currently available on the Nintendo Switch, don’t you know, and the PS4 and Microsoft’s bastard step-child this summer.
