  • touch controls optimised for the Switch
  • localisation into 14 major languages (English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch, Turkish, Portuguese (Brazil), Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), Korean, Japanese, Russian, Arabic)
  • and much more.

Here’s the latest trailer and some details for the game:

Jenny LeClue is a thrilling story of mystery, adventure and growing up. Set in the sleepy town of Arthurton, the game is filled with memorable, complex characters and rendered in a unique aesthetic. Jenny gets more than she bargains for when her mother is accused of murder and begins an unexpected journey to find the truth.

A pocket-sized heroine on a big quest for justice

Jenny is a brilliant young detective, sharp-eyed, intuitive and a ruthless pursuer of the truth. She is able to scrutinize her environment during dialogue scenes, observing her subject for visible clues that would otherwise go undetected, perhaps revealing their guilt or innocence.

A beautiful handmade world, packed with secrets

A sleek, gorgeous hand-drawn world with vintage mid-20th century aesthetics and mystery squished into every corner. There’s so much to interact with, and players who poke and prod at every last thing are rewarded with insight, secrets, and humor.

A story within a story, where choosiness matters

Jenny LeClue weaves a rich metanarrative around a rich story exploring themes of family, loss, and identity. The “author” of Jenny’s adventures, Arthur K Finklestein, acts as narrator and guide, but his presence also allows you to make choices that change the way Jenny’s story is written. These choices may even affect Finklestein’s own story.

A Diverse Cast Of Characters & Locations

Explore Arthurton’s expansive world including the abandoned mines, the forgotten graveyard, Lake Noware, and Gumboldt’s Library. Jenny will meet an array of intriguing and suspicious characters who could help or hinder her on her quest for the truth.

An enthralling original soundtrack created by scntfc

The award-winning Oxenfree and Old Man’s Journey composer scntfc (Andrew Rohrmann) has brought Arthurton to life with a sublime original soundtrack that lifts the mystery, magic and mirth of Jenny’s adventures at every turn.

Natsume have shared some details about the various difficulty options available in Legends of Ethernal, which are as follows:

  • Relaxed Mode – New to the platforming genre? Need some assistance? Playing with your little one? Just want to, well, relax? This mode is for you! Additional platforms are available, and enemies will be adjusted. Relaxed mode is for everyone, no matter their reasons, because we want everyone to enjoy the amazing world of Arkanys
  • Easy – Similar to Relaxed Mode, but with fewer additional platforms. Enemies remain slightly adjusted. For those who want a touch more challenge.
  • Normal – The default difficulty mode the game was created with. Balances platforming sections and enemies to be overall challenging. Expect to die occasionally.
  • Hard – Noticeably more challenging than Normal, enemies are demonstrably more difficult. Platforming sections have additional challenges. Expect to die regularly.
  • Hardcore – The Dark Souls of platfo…just kidding. Enemies are significantly more challenging. Platforming sections are grueling. Permadeath is enabled, which means if you die, you’re going back to the start of the game. You have been warned!
