Super Mario fans, you might want to check out a game called Poi. Already out on Steam, and slated to be on the PS4 and Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch has now joined the lineup for the title. Posted today via the studio’s Twitter account with some fun artwork of the game’s main character gaming on a Neon Switch unit, PolyKid promises the game will be out sometime this year.

 

 
Curious about the game? Here’s a small summary:

“Poi is a 3D platformer featuring two kids on a grand adventure to unravel the mysteries of the Milky Way Globe. Explore uncharted lands, compete in challenge levels, meet quirky characters and defeat comical creatures on a journey to become a Master Explorer.”

Very A Hat in Time-esque at first glance… We’re definitely looking forward to yet another love letter to the genre.

If you’re interested in getting a more visual sense of what to expect from Poi, check out the trailer below:
