Mutant Mudds coming to Nintendo Switch

Mutant Mudds, a 3DS classic from 2012, will invade the Nintendo Switch sometime soon.

Jools Watsham, head of Atooi (formerly part of Renegade Kid in Austin) posted on Twitter today that the game is coming to Switch. He added that it will release with all features from the Deluxe version of the game.

We’ve reviewed Mutant Mudds several times over the years as it released on multiple platforms, first on 3DS then Wii U and Sony consoles. Its a fantastic retro platformer that originally used the 3DS screen to great effect but is a solid platformer without it.

I’m still hopeful we’ll be getting a Mutant Mudds 2 or, if prayers are answered, a N64 style 3D Mutant Mudds, but this is still a great game and there are plenty of new Switch owners who will be playing this for the first time.

Jools added that he’s in discussion with Limited Run Games to sell a physical copy of the game on Switch, which is something I’d buy in a heartbeat.

If you’ve never heard of the game before (somehow) check out our Wii U review or our review of the PC version.
