Pumpkin Jack is preparing for a spooktastic launch on Switch later this week, so what better time is there to see more gameplay footage ahead of the big day?

The game's publisher, Headup, has shared with us this brand new launch trailer, and it's packed to the brim with exciting platforming action. We get to see some of Jack's battle techniques – such as his focus on dodging and timing, as well as a variety of weapons – and some of the eerie locations you'll be exploring in the game.

This PS2 era-inspired platformer seemed to go down really well when we shared the game's release date announcement earlier this month, so we imagine a fair few of you will be thinking of giving it a go when it arrives on the eShop. It launches on 23rd October priced at $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99, with a 20% launch discount being available for a limited time.
