Sumo Digital’s Snake Pass is coming to Switch

Sumo Digital, the veteran developer behind the console ports of OutRun 2 as well as the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed series, is bringing its first independent game to Nintendo’s Switch.

Snake Pass is a puzzle platformer with a unique approach to movement that sees you slithering your way through levels, and it’s the result of Sumo Digital’s first internal game jam. Its creator, Seb Liese, was working on Crackdown 3, which is being developed with the help of Sumo Digital, and had previously worked on the studio’s LittleBigPlanet 3.

Snake Pass is due out on Xbox One, PC and PS4 early this year, and the Switch version will be launching alongside them. Work on the Switch version has only been underway for a month, but progress is coming along nicely.
