For the early decades of game design, there was an unspoken rule that I’m really glad came back in recent years: The world can never have too many platformers. Along those lines, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC are all slated to receive 2D and 3D puzzle platformer Neko Ghost, Jump! from developer Burgos Games. The game will launch “soon” and received a new trailer as part of E3 2021, but in the meantime, you can try out its Steam demo.
Neko Ghost, Jump! enables you to swap between 2D and 3D camera perspectives during play, seemingly like in Super Paper Mario from the Wii, and you can also swap between physical and ghost cat forms to fight enemies and solve puzzles. As a plus, the kitty is really cute, and you can customize it with hundreds of options. The game contains 40 levels across eight biomes with top scores to chase on leaderboards. Accessibility and assist options of some sort will be included as well.
Neko Ghost, Jump! is the debut title from Burgos Games, founded by Victor Burgos, “a proud Puerto Rican U.S. Marine veteran,” so we wish them well as the game’s launch approaches. For more really promising platformers on the way to Nintendo Switch like Neko Ghost, Jump!, check out 3D platformer Frogun or 2D platformer Tiny Thor, the latter of which we did an in-depth interview about.
