Developer Right Nice Games and publisher Grip Digital have announced that 3D action platformer Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is set to launch sometime during March for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition to providing a release window, the pair also released a new trailer.
The new trailer — titled Gadgets Trailer — focuses in on the game’s different gadgets (surprise). Specifically, it showcases the game’s “freedom-boosting” Jet Pack, which you can use to zip around Clover Island and uncover its mysterious past. It also shows off the Time Orb, which appears to be some type of time manipulation gadget. Lastly, it features the powerful Magnetic Glove, which can be used to grab a hold of things, like missiles and minions, and send them flying back at the enemy.
For those that don’t know, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a homage to the beloved platformer genre of the previous decade. Here’s a full overview:
Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a passionate revival of the legendary 3D platformer genre with classic gameplay, playful gadgets, and a lighthearted story set in a gorgeous, colorful world reminiscent of our childhood adventures.
You play as the brave Skylar, a young female space-feline caught in the middle of a robotic overlord’s exploitation of a peaceful world. This robotic menace, known as the CRT, kidnapped our heroine and wiped her memory in an attempt to reconstruct her into a super weapon. She wields a weaponized mechanical arm, packing an enormous amount of punching power. Breaking out from CRT’s space station with the help of a mysterious benefactor, Skylar crashes down on Clover Island and teams up with the equal parts goofy and witty owl Plux.
Traverse the tropical beaches, volcanic caverns, snowy mountain tops, and merciless desert of Clover Island. Fight an army of CRT’s minions, and find powerful upgrades expanding your abilities. Explore the island with the freedom-boosting Jet Pack, and uncover its mysterious past with the puzzling Time Orb. Free the imprisoned natives of Clover Island, and discover your destiny.
If you miss adventuring like it’s 2001, or just love colorful aesthetics, tasty upbeat music, goofy humor and collecting lots of shiny gems, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is for you!
