Gareth Noyce, developer of the isometric puzzle game Lumo teased an image of the game running on Nintendo’s newest handheld-hybrid console.

Noyce said that he cannot currently give the game an official release date on the console. Last year, Lumo released physically on the the PS4 and PS Vita. The game is only available digitally on all other platforms. The Switch version of Lumo will still be published by Rising Star Games.

Lumo is a puzzle game brimming with nostalgia for the 80’s and 90’s. The game features over 400 rooms across a slew of different zones. Not only that but there are a ton of secrets hidden throughout the many rooms you’ll find yourself in.

You play as a tiny wizard. You’re dropped into a small room and from there you can continue to slowly progress and figure out what each room in the game has to offer. Lumo’s story isn’t necessarily meant to be taken seriously as many things about who you are and why you’re doing things are not explained.

You can try Lumo before it comes to Nintendo Switch since it is available right now on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One. If you want to read more about the game, you can check out our review.
