A launch trailer has been released for The Unlikely Legend Of Rusty Pup, showcasing elements of its gameplay and a fantastic level of graphical detail.

We've been following the story of Rusty Pup for some time now here on Nintendo Life; from its initial Wii U reveal back in 2013, a visit to game developer Chris Seavor's home office to learn more about the project, and then on to the eventual 'switch' from Wii U to Nintendo's latest system, we've enjoyed seeing the game truly take shape over the last handful of years.

In case you didn't know, Rusty Pup comes from the original creator of Conker's Bad Fur Day and tells the story of a dog that thinks it's a toy - or is it a toy that thinks it's a dog? Either way, the whole thing looks beautifully intricate as you can see in the new trailer above.

This month sees the game's launch on Steam, with the Switch version headed our way in the fullness of time. We reached out to Chris and he said the Switch edition "will be coming for sure" but it's not as easy as flicking a (no pun intended) switch due to the game's powerful bespoke engine.

Update: Chris has also told us that the proposed 3DS version has been scrapped. According to the developer, the console's display resolution is way too small. He also points out that the game won't be coming to smartphones for a similar reason - a large display is needed to fully exploit the game's mechanics.

If you like what you see, developer Gory Detail has also shared an extended look at the game. You can check that out below.
