PQube and developer Super Icon are sneaking their 2D platform game creation tool onto Switch just before Nintendo's plumber arrives to soak up everybody's payday cash; PlataGO! Super Platform Game Maker is launching next week on 13th June.
Channelling the same creative spirit powering Super Mario Maker 2, this game also features a large collection of level furniture and terrain to put to use, with furniture, tiles and enemy types to suit every mood. It also has a range of 'skins' relating to a bunch of 8 and 16-bit consoles if you want to give your creation an instant peppering of nostalgia for your favourite NES, SNES, Game Boy, Amiga and Commodore 64 platformers.
The developers ran a competition last year for players to create games in the Early Access Steam version and have them appear in the Switch release, so we'll be keeping an eye out for the winners' creations. Check out the trailer below for a reminder of what to expect when the game launches next week for $19.99 / £17.99 / €19.99.
Do you think there's enough space for two platform creation games on Switch? Have you sampled the game on Steam? Feel free to share your thoughts and experiences with a comment.
