TowerFall developer Matt Thorson has revealed that his latest project - described as a "Hardcore Mountain Climbing Platformer" - is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year.

Celeste may be billed as "a game about climbing a mountain", but as you can see from the trailer above, things get pretty intense at times. Your character can perform superhuman leaps and deft wall-jumps, and it's not just long falls and sharp objects that get in your way - the trailer shows a sinister doppelganger and a scary floating head, just two of what we assume will be many enemies in the game. Thankfully you won't be alone, as Celeste is shown conversing with NPCs at certain points, too.

It all looks pretty great, and is yet another potential indie classic for the Switch library. Let us know what you think by posting a comment.
