Thimbleweed Park Confirmed For Nintendo Switch

Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park will be coming to the Nintendo Switch September 21

Do you happen to own a Nintendo Switch? If the answer is yes and you happen to be a fan of the point-and-click adventures of the LucasFilm days like Maniac Mansion and The Curse of Monkey Island, you’re in for a treat. Thimbleweed Park, the latest game from LucasFilm alumni Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick’s studio Terrible Toybox, will be making its way to Nintendo’s handheld/console hybrid on September 21, 2017 following its successful release on the PC and Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 earlier this year.

The Nintendo Switch version of Thimbleweed Park offers support for both Joy-Con controllers and touch screen controls and will be priced at $19.99 when it lands on the Nintendo eShop later this month.

To mark the occasion, Ron Gilbert has released a trailer for the Switch version of the game that can be found below:

We scored Thimbleweed Park a 4.5 out of 5 in our review back in March saying “If you’ve got a soft spot for LucasArts’ catalog of point-and-click adventures, you really owe it to yourself to pick up Thimbleweed Park. While plenty of games rely on retro-style aesthetics to tug at the heartstrings of players who cut their teeth on the hits of the 1980’s, developer Terrible Toybox have used their experience as industry veterans to craft a modern masterpiece that keeps its heart firmly planted in the genre’s golden era.”

So, will you be picking up the game when it releases on the Switch? Be sure to sound off in the comments and let us know.
