You haven’t been forgotten, Xbox fans, Fall Guys is coming your way this summer

Bean there, done that

During last night’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Mediatonic announced that its silly battle royale title Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was making a heavy, saggy leap onto the Switch platform. This morning, Devolver Digital was quick to let Xbox owners know that they won’t be left out, as the madcap multiplayer title is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X this summer.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is an en masse multiplayer title in which a huge squad of colorful “beans” battle it out in a sequence of ridiculous rounds that include races, obstacle courses, inertia-based puzzles, wild charges uphill, and many other over-the-top events, all to grab the prestigious crown located at the end of the show. Just like Connor Macloed, there can be only one.

Launching on PS4 and PC in the summer of 2020, Fall Guys was an instant mainstream hit, thanks to its pick-up-and-put-down nature, simple learning curve, and basic control system, pulling in players from all over the globe and raising a lot of laughs and smiles while doing so. Now confirmed for Switch and Xbox, and with a China-exclusive mobile port in the works, it looks as if Fall Guys is set to keep ’em rollin’ on in 2021.
