Kukoos - Lost Pets has been bounding around in Early Access on Steam for most of 2022, and every time I've gone back to check the game out, I've been astounded that it hasn't been announced for Nintendo Switch yet.
Well, I'm astounded no longer, as Modus Games seems to have snatched up a publishing deal for Kukoos, which it will be bringing to consoles with a staggered release in late 2022 and 2023. Kukoos - Lost Pets will be leaving early access and fully launching on Steam this December, and at the same time, it will be releasing on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. PS5 and Xbox console releases are scheduled for 2023.
This is a ludicrously clever platformer, with tons of cool, constantly changing mechanics and no shortage of challenge. It is appealing enough for kids to pick it up (these characters just cry out for kids to play with them), but adults might find themselves surprised by just how difficult Kukoos can be. This is not a kiddie walk in the park - this is a real deal platformer with Nintendo-level design and difficulty.
Look for more news on Kukoos as we get on towards release. I've been a fan of this one for a while now, and will be following its progress closely.
