    At about 20-25 minutes they start playing the Switch version, and they show off footage from the PS4 for comparison as well. This is UE4 and the Switch definitely seems to hold its own in this engine.

    Update: thanks to an unlisted Youtube video, we now know Snake Pass will receive a simultaneous release with the other platforms on March 29th!



    Update 2: Price is $20.

    Never heard of this game. Watching the gameplay is strangely hypnotic.

    Can't wait for the modders to get ahold of this one. Lots of furry things for that snake to eat. Maybe even some foxes.

    You went and spoiled it. He was supposed to find that on his own.

    It might just be me, but these key reseller sites hardly seem worth a damn any more because their prices have skyrocketed. Maybe keys stopped falling off the back of a truck, so to speak.

    makes me dizzy lol...
    They should show some Switch game play. Its pretty cool that it didnt take long to port it.
    I hope this means that other games would be very easy to port and get running smothly.
    If this is true then we could see alot of games for the switch.
    Just gotta see what the limit is since the this game is a bit on the low side as far as pushing a system.

    I thought it was like reimporting pharmaceuticals. Steam charges less in the developing world.

    I never understood why people stupidly make videos unlisted.

    I think it was meant to be private for some time yet rather than unlisted.

    I have watched them play it and I still don't know how you control that snake :wacko:

    Looks interesting though.
