Ratchet & Clank, Jax & Daxter, Sly Cooper, Gex, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Blinx, Raz – there was a time 3D platformers staring color characters in colorful environments dominated our consoles. Arguably, that’s no longer the case, so are these types of games now, “retro?”

A new studio out of Stockholm, Sweden, Right Nice Games reckons so and are paying homage to that glorious time with their upcoming action platformer, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island.

Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a passionate homage to the 3D platformers of our youth. Go on an action packed adventure, collecting gadgets helping you explore a beautiful paradise and save it from evil”, says Eric Valentine, Level Designer and Narrative Director, Right Nice Games.

 

From the announcement press release:

Following the best traditions of the third-person platformer/action genre, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island sets two unlikely heroes on an adventure to prevent the villainous CRT from conquering their home and turning it into a wasteland. Skylar was designed by CRT and turned into his most potent weapon – wielding a powerful mechanical arm augmentation — but now, she must become a heroine-against-her-will to defy her makers and forge a new destiny. And Plux is the eloquent sidekick that every good action platformer needs to have.

Together, they will explore lush beaches, burning volcanoes, freezing mountains and merciless desert, fight an army of CRT’s henchmen, collect powerful upgrades like the Magnetic Glove, or Jetpack and challenging CRT’s plans – and their destinies – before it is too late.

The gameplay video above is accompanied by a just announced release window of January 2017. The game will be available on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
