    From this longer reel of Owlboy-related announcements. You can see the consoles and release date at the 6:31 mark:



    Can't wait to check it out, I've heard great things about the game and it looks/sounds charming as hell. Glad the wait is almost over!

    I bought it on PC day one but never finished... I might double dip for the Switch. But I dunno, I won't lie that I keep stalking their Facebook page hoping to score a code for the eventual console version.

    Awesome, been waiting for this on switch since it was shown on it in Japan a couple months back. Another indie gem for the collection.

    I played it on pc and it's a very good game with some wonderful art and music.

    Early 2018 is starting to look really stacked so hopefully it doesn't go unnoticed. Game deserves success.

    Oh god now to decide between Switch and PS4 (honestly I'll probably go with Switch but if that trophy list is nice idk). Wonder if there will be a physical copy available or if LRG will help out on this one. Stoked to try the game either way

    It's an incredible game and easily one of the very best games I played this gen. I don't know if I'll double dip but if you didn't yet, you definitely should play it.

    I may double dip on a physical edition.

    It's a great little game, perhaps not one of the real big hitters of the indie scene but one that remains novel in execution and has charm in spades.
    And also Owls, of course.

    Nice, I own it on PC but will pick it up again to support the devs, plus it will feel right at home on the Switch.

    Now I don't know if I should get it on PC or Switch. It's on sale on Steam right now, but it would be nice to have it portable.

    Jesus. Great pixel art makes me giddy and this thing has such incredible reviews--I'd be insane to miss it on Switch. BUT! I'm not typically into Metroidvanias, regardless of quality. It's a genre thing, I guess. Like, for as much as I loved the art and vision of Ori, not even that held me for very long.

    So, Era, should I give Owlboy a shot, given my history? I wanna be a believer!

    Its not a metroidvania but a somewhat linear narrativedriven game instead actually.

    I am so glad this is dropping. It was fading into the background and was going to be completely forgotten. Now I'll get it on my Switch. Looks like a high powered GBA game.

    Finally ! I didn't want to play it on a PC monitor. I was waiting for a PS4 release. I have been waiting for this game since 2011, still have the demo installed on my PC.

    I'd been following Owlboy for years before it came out and when it did, I couldn't help but be a bit disappointed. It has spectacular presentation, with a stunning artstyle and soundtrack. The story is also surprisingly engaging, with characters you start to care about over time. However, the gameplay and design are what keeps this from greatness. In both the exploration and dungeon parts I found myself going through the motions pretty quickly, there was nothing that really stood out in terms of design. The dungeons in particular were very mundane affairs for me. Everything was there for a standout game, but the design lagged behind and because of that I could never completely get into it.
