Sunsoft’s Game Boy Platformer Trip World Hits Switch eShop Next Week

Trip World DX for the Switch eShop will release on August 31 after a physical announcement in April.

It was announced that this is a remaster of the 8-bit Sunsoft Game Boy game that was released in Japan in 1992 and Europe in 1993. The original game was also on 3DS Virtual Console.

This new color version of the “experience” platformer adds museum mode, music player, “sleek new presentation”, and art and was developed and designed with Yuichi Ueda. For $19.99 USD (or your regional equivalent).

Nintendo’s website has more information and screenshots about Trip World DX:

Use Yakopoo’s shapeshifting powers to save Trip World from darkness! Race across the ground as a ball. Grow a tail to hit enemies—or a flower to make your enemies friendly!
