Ukuza Announces Epic Loon Nintendo Switch Release in New Gameplay Trailer

Ukuza’s quirky physics platformer, Epic Loon, has had quite the busy week. Just about timed up perfectly with the new year, the title has received a brand new, highly detailed and supremely weird gameplay trailer. And the trailer has a special twist, no less: an announcement toward the end that Epic Loon will now be released via the Nintendo Switch.

This new video delves deeply into the story, characters, and gameplay that make up the entirety of the game, including heavy footage of the 4-player co-op and “battle” modes. Multiple vignettes of gameplay footage are on display, thoroughly making a meal of the title’s multiplayer elements, with the aim of conveying just how centralized the game’s focus is on the couch co-op aspect. As for the announcement itself? It can be seen during the closing of the trailer.

Epic Loon seems to be an extra good fit for a console like the Switch, whose own hardware marketing has been touted as a return to form for intimate gaming. The Switch is a console on which the experience is better when shared, and the exact same can be said about this game whose core message is “Play while sharing a beer with friends.” The trailer can be found via Epic Loon’s official website ( and the Ukuza YouTube channel (

Along with PC, Xbox One and PS4, our favorite cosmic quartet will now be terrorizing Joe and his film collection on the Nintendo Switch. All ports will be released in Q2 2018.
