Includes cross-play with iOS and Android editions
Eclectic developer thatgamecompany has announced that its free-to-play mobile title Sky: Children of the Light will be winging its way onto Switch in June, bringing its dreamlike realms and harmonious social nature to Nintendo’s hybrid platform.
The Switch edition of the 2019 release will retain its free-to-play nature, and will also feature cross-play with its iOS and Android brethren, allowing players to meet up, connect with, and journey alongside an already established community of hundreds of thousands of players. As the titular “Children of the Light,” players venture through seven distinct worlds, spreading hope, joy, and happiness in efforts to restore the desolate lands.
Winning numerous awards – particularly for its ethereal soundtrack and calming sound design – Sky: Children of the Light was critically praised for its relaxing social nature and spirit of community and camaraderie, recalling that of thatgamecompany’s most celebrated release, Journey. This new Switch port will likely see thousands of new players added to the fold – and at a time where we could all use a little R’n’R, its arrival can’t come a moment too soon.
