Super Meat Boy meets Towerfall in this upcoming platformer.

During this morning’s Nintendo Direct Mini, the pixelated platformer Celeste announced it would launch for on January 25 for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Celeste is the newest game from Towerfall Ascension developer Matt Makes Games. You can watch the first 9 minutes of Celeste in action right here:

It shares a lot of similarities to Towerfall, but plays as an exclusively single-player, linear experience full of secrets and collectibles. As a result, it feels a bit like a cross between Towerfall and Super Meat Boy.

Originally designed for the Pico-8 in just four days, the developers decided to recreate and vastly expand Celeste into a full game. The original, now called Celeste Classic, can still be played for free here.

Celeste’s release date was announced as part of a Nintendo Direct Mini, alongside the reveal of a new Mario Tennis game and Dark Souls Remastered both coming to Switch. You can see all the announcements from that here.
