Rotund Takeoff: Retro Remake Rebounds Onto The Switch

A remake of the Wii U eShop title Chubbins, Rotund Takeoff follows an endlessly bouncing obese rabbit with a focus on precision platforming and fast times.

If dying and repeating as a morbidly obese rabbit sounds like your kind of game, you’ll be pleased to hear that Rotund Takeoff is heading to the Nintendo Switch this month.

A remake of Chubbins, a Wii U eShop title by Dahku, you play the plump rabbit Chubbit who flaunts the unenviable skill of endless bouncing. What that means is a hellish platformer where this rabbit can’t stay still. Cue some precision jumping.

Intentionally challenging, as evidenced in the trailer, Rotund Takeoff encourages speed runs with the time attack feature. But this isn’t a game of chance, and a strategy is paramount if you intend to set some hi-scores.

Key features include:

  • One-handed controls minimize your learning curve amid hardcore gameplay.
  • Faster-than-lightning respawns snub failure to keep your game flowing.
  • Awaken your inner speedrunner with quick levels hand-crafted around Time Attack.
  • Feel the rush as you challenge intense bosses using nothing but brains and bounces.
  • Chiptune-infused soundtrack by Jarrel Lanchester immerses you in a colorful adventure of retro delight.

Here’s the trailer:

Rotund Takeoff is listed as a 17th of June release on the Nintendo eShop, and if you’re a fan of Super Meat Boy and Celeste, then this might be the indie title for you.
