Microïds and Frima Studio have announced that Super Chariot, an enhanced re-release of Chariot, will be launching on Nintendo Switch in May this year - and we'll even be getting a physical edition, too!

Taking on the role of the princess or her fiancé, players must take the coffin of the deceased King through platforming caves in search of a resting place deemed worthy by His Late Majesty. Featuring 25 colourful levels of platforming adventure, Super Chariot can be played solo but, as we mentioned in our review of the original game on Wii U, the focus here seems to be geared towards a two-player co-op experience.

The physical edition of the game will come with some extra goodies including the game, the Royal Gadget Pack DLC (which includes a new playable character and five new gadgets), and the original downloadable soundtrack, although this is only set to be available in Europe and Australia.


If you want to try out the game for yourself before you buy, a demo containing the game's first three levels is scheduled to hit the Switch eShop soon. Fans of 2D platforming challenges might like to give this one a go.
