  • In preparation for release of its hand-drawn Viking game on the popular system, Thunder Lotus has remastered Jotun’s graphics for Nintendo Switch and optimized its action-exploration gameplay for the console’s handheld mode. The developer is confident the upgrades will help draw new players to the award-winning game, which recently surpassed the one million player milestone.

    Jotun: Valhalla Edition for the Nintendo Switch will be pre-purchasable as of April 13th on the Nintendo eShop in North and South America, as of April 18th in Europe, and April 19th in Japan.

    Thunder Lotus’ debut production earned high praise from press and players alike for its gorgeous visuals and challenging gameplay upon its release on PC (2015) and consoles (2016). The developer is proud to confirm that Jotun has welcomed over 1 million players into its hand-drawn norse-inspired world since its initial launch.

    Those that had enjoyed the game on Wii U, especially, will notice an evident graphical upgrade in the new release. Subtler, but no less crucial, are the gameplay tweaks implemented by the developer to allow for a seamless experience on the Nintendo Switch console’s handheld mode. This prompted the company head to (somewhat wistfully) note that Jotun’s arrival on Nintendo Switch marks the first time a Thunder Lotus production is fully untethered from a dedicated TV screen or monitor.

    “Playing a Thunder Lotus game on a handheld console brings me way back,” said Will Dubé, President of Thunder Lotus Games in a prepared statement. “One of my earliest gaming memories is passing the Game Boy back and forth with my brothers during road trips. I hope we can create similarly epic memories for new Vikings across the world!”

    About Jotun: Valhalla Edition

    Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Jotun: Valhalla Edition features Valhalla Mode, a boss rush mode with even fiercer versions of the already challenging jotun.

    Jotun: Valhalla Edition was previously released on PC/Mac/Linux in 2015, and on Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2016. It has received numerous accolades, including two Canadian Video Game Awards. The title retails at $14.99 USD on all platforms.
