Jump King will jump to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2020

UKIYO Publishing and the independent game developer Nexile are pleased to announce that their acclaimed yet punishing platformer, Jump Kingwill arrive in 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Jump King is a truly ruthless platform game that challenges players to climb a colossal tower to rescue the mythical “damsel” locked up in its top, defying gravity and where they can only jump. In this “tactical jump adventure,” players will be able to position themselves where they want, charge their jump, take aim and rely on gravity, as they take on each increasingly nerve-wracking jump. If they can not make any mistakes, proving that they are true jumping experts, they will land on a ledge. Otherwise… well, it could be a long fall.

Every single progress along the way is saved … but the same goes for any unexpected. So a jump gone wrong could suddenly become your undoing, in case of another mistake. That’s why it’s important to experiment with new paths and tactics, as Jump King includes multiple paths to success. Everything is wrapped up in nostalgic pixel art graphics, full of vibrant characters and evocative locations.

Make no mistake, Jump King is an incredibly difficult game, but it can be enjoyed by anyone looking for a challenging, yet fair, challenge. It’s sadistic enough to make even an experienced gamer cry, but still accessible, thanks to instant gameplay mechanics and intuitive controls, so much so that anyone can overcome his challenges – perseverance is key! Do you have what it takes to become the one true Jump King?

Jump King was created to make you look clumsy. It makes you jump, an action often taken for granted in games, but which here represents the only challenge of the game itself! ”, Said Felix Wahlström of Nexile. “Sounds pretty silly… why should users have trouble jumping with simple three-button commands? But once you try it you will understand and you will be involved in an absolutely addicting mechanic! It’s a modern idea in a nostalgic and eye-catching package, which we think is perfect for console gamers. “

Jump King caused our team so much pain and anguish that we lost our sanity, so we decided to introduce the rest of the world to this **** we helped create, ”said Paul Hann of UKIYO Publishing. “I haven’t been able to finish it yet, but I know one day I’ll make it. A day…”
