We were excited to hear that the long-awaited retro platformer Clive ‘N’ Wrench would be finally hopping its way to Switch in Europe in February 2023, and we are now pleased to hear that our friends across the pond will be able to experience all of it’s 90s-inspired goodness in physical form on the same day.
The game has been in development for a while now. Beginning back in the days of the Wii U, it is fair to say that the 12 years of waiting has been a long one. Fortunately, Numbskull Games is here to confirm that all is still well in the world, and it has even shared a new festive-themed peek at the game in the above trailer – because every platformer needs an ice level!
If you need a little reminder as to what Clive ‘N’ Wrench is all about, check out the following details and brand new images from Numbskull Games:
A Time-Bending Tale – Your adventure will take your all the way from the prehistoric ice age in Iceceratops, through ancient Egypt in Tempus Tombs, and even all the way through to the Wild West
Space-Defying Locations! – Explore 11 distinct levels each with its own boss battle. Brilliantly crafted platforming paradises full of challenges, collectables and charismatic characters.
Flowing Hare – Years have been spent perfecting the feel and animation of each move in Clive and Wrench’s diverse moveset, tailored for both experienced players and newcomers alike.
A Work of Passion! – A project from sole developer Rob Wass started in 2011, Clive ‘N’ Wrench is a real work of passion from a genuine fan of the genre
Aside from announcing that Clive ‘N’ Wrench will have physical copies in the US at the same time as it does Europe, Numbskull confirmed that the collector’s edition will be making its way to the States too, containing a fridge magnet, cards, game manual and the original soundtrack as extras. Well, ’tis the season, after all.
The physical release is now available to pre-order both in Europe and the Americas.
