Beautiful animation and an authentic Nordic feel enhance an already impressively distinct 2D action adventure.

Jotun: Valhalla Edition is a throwback to retro gaming in terms of both art style and gameplay. While the minimalist design manages to offer quite a bit of variety, the lack of combat and exploration options becomes evident rather quickly. Still, anyone interested in Norse mythology mixed with retro gaming and old-school art design will enjoy Thora's ascent into Valhalla.

Jotun Valhalla Edition on Switch is the same game launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC almost two years ago. It will astound you with its visuals, narrative, gigantic final bosses... But under all that shinning beauty, lies a game with a simple mechanics and ideas, that in some levels seems to be a little bit empty in terms of content.
