After plenty of teasing and hinting, developer GalaxyTrail has confirmed 2D side-scrolling platformer Freedom Planet is gearing up to make the leap from Wii U to Nintendo Switch in time for the autumn/fall. The studio has teamed up with publisher XSEED to make the Switch-based magic happen.

With two playable characters (plus an unlockable third) and an awesome anime-esque visual style, Freedom Planet still looks and plays like a platforming gem so we're looking forward to seeing it get another shot at stardom on a Nintendo console. It'll also be playable on Switch at E3 if you happen to be making it to the big show this year.

Did you play Freedom Planet on Wii U (or, dare we say it, another platform)? Will it make a good fit for Nintendo Switch? Let us know in the comments below...
