New version of the mythological adventure gets boss rush mode.
Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Jotun: Valhalla Edition features Valhalla Mode, a boss rush mode with even fiercer versions of the already challenging jotun.
In preparation for release of its hand-drawn Viking game on the popular system, Thunder Lotus has remastered Jotun’s graphics for Nintendo Switch™ and optimized its action-exploration gameplay for the console’s handheld mode. The developer is confident the upgrades will help draw new players to the award-winning game, which recently surpassed the one million player milestone.
“Playing a Thunder Lotus game on a handheld console brings me way back,” said Will Dubé, President of Thunder Lotus Games. “One of my earliest gaming memories is passing the Game Boy back and forth with my brothers during road trips. I hope we can create similarly epic memories for new Vikings across the world!”
The game was previously released on PC/Mac/Linux in 2015, and on Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One in 2016. It has received numerous accolades, including two Canadian Video Game Awards. Jotun: Valhalla Edition will be released in the Nintendo eShop on the 27th of April, 2018, priced at $14.99.
