Owlboy is coming to the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 13. The retro-inspired adventure platformer was in development for nine years before finally releasing on PC last year. I played it and thought it was worth the wait.

Owlboy is just magical. It’s more than a homage to the 16-bit era. I kind of imagine it’s what would’ve happened if the 16-bit era just kind of continued on until now. It has such scope, and lovingly made graphics, and animations, it’s just such a joy. I’m busy playing through it at the moment, about to continue after making this comment, and I am glad more people will get to experience it on consoles.
