  • Some Distant Memory

HOF Studios have announced that they are bringing Polyroll to the Nintendo Switch on October 29th in North America, and October 31st in Europe.

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

In Polyroll, players will make their way through 36 expansive levels filled with unique enemies, hidden gems, and challenging bosses in a retro, 2D adventure. Polyroll, the roly poly with attitude, uses his super shell to spin, bounce, roll, and ricochet across the land on a mission to save his friends from the clutches of the evil Kaiser Kiwi. Polyroll’s colorful bug-themed world is infused with retro charm inspired by classic platformers and chock full of inventive hazards and enemies. Eleven insane bosses stand between the hero and his friends, including a crazed stoplight, haywire appliances, and a giant spider stuck in a computer case. With locked-away paths and 96 hidden gems, there will be plenty of incentive to revisit the game’s levels to uncover branching paths and secret areas.

Together with HOF Studios and Shiny Dolphin games, Polyroll was completely remastered for the new release. Along with reworking the pixel-art, they added five new levels, a new boss, and even more hidden collectibles into the new release to make it even better. Additionally, the game features updated controls and tweaks that will please both the fans of both the original game and players of pixel-perfect platformers alike.
