Release Date Trailer for Pumpkin Jack

Just in time for Halloween, Pumpkin Jack will be hitting the eShop on your Nintendo Switch!

We previewed this game at PAX Online last month, which you can read about right here.

From Headup Games and developed by Nicolas Meyssonnier, is a linear adventure platformer that’s your traditional good versus evil game… except that, uh, you might not be fighting for the side you’d think.

Here’s the write-up for this spooky game that releases October 23rd:

“Pumpkin Jack is a spooky scary 3D platformer in which you embody Jack, the Mythical Pumpkin Lord. Dive into an epic adventure through otherworldly landscapes and help the Evil annihilate the Good!
Follow the will of the Devil himself and slay your nemesis in an epic quest that will take you on a journey in the Boredom Kingdom, a mythical realm shattered by the curse. You will meet friends along the way, from a haughty owl to a snarky crow!

Discover stunning atmospheres in a colorful yet spooky scary Kingdom. Travel through epic and dramatic settings, with each level having its own eerie atmosphere. Using a vibrant palette and high-quality lighting effects, Pumpkin Jack invents its own unique cartoon universe inspired by the classic PS2 graphic style, made with Unreal Engine 4.”

There will be approximately 5-8 hours worth of playtime in this title, with a “hair-raising array of gameplay mechanics.”
