Since its original release back in 2019, many Switch players have dreamed of taking flight in Thatgamecompany’s peaceful friendship adventure on their favorite gaming hybrid. That dream has finally come true, as Sky: Children of the Light will officially land on the Nintendo Switch eShop later today, and will include full support for cross-play and cross-progression with mobile platforms!



“Players arrive in Sky as a child of light to unravel mysteries of the desolate kingdom, and return the fallen stars back to their constellations. Players can explore seven dreamlike realms with like-minded friends, where they can fly, hold hands and collaborate together around the world. With compassion, friendship and altruism as central elements of Sky, the game’s innovative experience has drawn both critical acclaim and awards. Since its debut, the game has been honored with Apple’s 2019 iPhone Game of the Year and Apple’s 2020 Design Award, as well as wins at the SXSW Awards 2020, the Game Developers Choice Awards 2020, The Webby Awards 2020 and 2021, GooglePlay Store’s Best Indie Games of 2020 as well as other awards.   

To celebrate its release, Nintendo Switch players will be able to purchase a new Starter Pack, which includes two new capes, a vessel flute, new hairstyle, 75 candles and an extra surprise for $30. Additionally, players can look forward to Sky’s first-ever collaborative crossover event that will star the internationally beloved character, Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince), from the cross-generational French children’s novel and franchise created by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. A brand new beautifully-designed “Starlight Desert” area has been added to also stage the all-new storyline. The new season launches on July 6th 2021, with more information on the collaboration coming soon.”
