Retro Puzzle-Platformer, Lumo is coming to Nintendo Switch
A nice fit for the platform
The Nintendo Switch will be getting yet another puzzle platformer in the form of Lumo, a small indie game from 2016 that originally released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game was originally described as "the rebirth of a genre," as it aimed to emulate classic isometric adventure games for modern audiences. The game was made by a single developer, Garth Noyce, who tweeted out that a Nintendo Switch port was on the way, but couldn't yet project a date.
Here's the tweet:

Gamers step into the boots of a little mage who must navigate across over 400 rooms across four unique zones in a game packed full of secrets to uncover. Here's an official description of the game courtesy of its Steam page:
As a contemporary take on the long-lost isometric platform genre, Lumo can be enjoyed by anyone looking for an absorbing, challenging and rewarding adventure. But for those who lived through the golden age of videogames – the 80s and early 90s – or know about the games and culture from that time, layer upon layer of nods, winks and touches to those times help build upon an experience that’s as heart-warming as it is exciting!
