Just a note to those of you picking up the deluxe edition. You're going to be playing the game long before you get the guide! The other two versions come out Switch launch day. You can preorder through Amazon here.
Snake Pass, shipping next month for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, is a physics-based puzzle platformer that challenges players to ‘think like a snake’ as they tackle precarious puzzles as only a snake can. Slither through long grass, coil around bamboo and climb out of trouble in the latest game from award-winning independent studio Sumo Digital. Play it on Nintendo Switch exclusively in the Unreal Engine booth at GDC!
A portion of a NE interview with Sumo Digital...
NE: How long do you estimate it taking players to complete the game?
SD: To collect everything it’s going to take quite a long time, about 8-10 hours. There are also some cool unlocks to discover!
NE: At what point did Sumo Digital begin to consider Snake Pass for Switch?
SD: Everyone on the team is really excited to be working on the Nintendo Switch version of this game. Very early on it became apparent to us that Snake Pass would be a great fit for a Nintendo platform so the timing of the Switch is perfect for us. Being able to take Snake Pass on the go with you is just too good an opportunity to pass up!

The dev behind Ira has stated interest in bringing the game to Switch. When he found out Switch ran Unreal Engine 4 and heard the price of the Switch dev kits, he seemed quite eager to make a port happen. We'll keep our eyes on the project for any official updates. Thanks to Champ Blanc and ShardShinjuku for the heads up!
We've seen a lot of games in 1-2 Switch, but which one are you most excited for? Right now, I think I'm all about safe cracker!

Development on Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is now complete! pic.twitter.com/Recv88hiGx
After playing a couple demo levels in Specter of Torment, I am SO ready to jump back into the world of Shovel Knight. It's even better that we get to do it on Switch first!
