Developer Drakhar Studio and publisher BadLand Games have announced today that Ginger: Beyond the Crystal is making its way to the Nintendo Switch, and will be here in time for the holidays.

Originally released last year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Ginger is a 3D platformer with plenty of inspiration drawn from classics like Super Mario 64. Players will take control of Ginger and guide him through his quest to rebuild a world that was destroyed after the explosion of a crystal.

Ginger features full 3D platforming across 15 different levels, plus an additional 15 bonus levels, and also contains over 200 side-quests for players to complete.

Moisés Otero, production designer of Ginger: Beyond the Crystal, states that “besides having a classic 3D platformer, the game has modern mechanics, simulation, quests, adventures, small village rebuilding and even has a new game mode called Old School, harder than normal mode, specially made for classic games fans.”

Ginger: Beyond the Crystal is slated for release on the Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop on November 17. BadLand Games has stated that a physical version of the game will be released next year. Did you play Ginger when it first came out? Will you be getting it on the Switch? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
