New Super Lucky's Tale is a game right at home on a Nintendo console. Featuring bright and colourful environments in a charming world full of life, it draws you in from the offset for an adventure I enjoyed more than some of Mario's. Though slightly frustrating for its loading times, it puts forward a great debut for the adventurous fox on the Switch, and I can only hope to see more down the line.

New Super Lucky's Tale is a great platform game for all ages. It has excellent gameplay and a great soundtrack. The biggest problem is its difficulty and maybe duration: besides being very easy (mainly for veterans of the 3D platform genre), the complete journey with 100% of the items does not take much time.

New Super Lucky’s Tale is a game that probably doesn’t need to exist, all things considered.

New Super Lucky’s Tale is one of my all-time favourite 3D platformers. It’s happy, colourful and engaging for players of all ages and the controls are as tight as can be. If you’re a fan of the genre, you simply have to pick this up and give it a go!

New Super Lucky's Tale is a charming and well done platformer. The number of moves you have may seem limited, since you learn nothing else in your journey, but the game does a good job of making sure you use all of the moves all of the time. The colorful look is aided by the general charm of the characters to create an experience where you're constantly grinning. It may be easy for genre veterans, and the load times can be annoying, but the short runtime ensures that the game doesn't overstay its welcome.

Easy enough for newcomers to just pick up and play, and providing just enough fun and familiar challenge for veterans of the genre.

Lucky himself might be unlucky to be such a boring character, but he is fun to play as, and gets to run around in charming worlds.

New Super Lucky’s Tale is better than its predecessor in many ways, but in some areas it falls short, mainly because of the hardware it’s running on.

It takes the fun original release and turns it into something pretty special. The Switch could be a fantastic new start for Lucky. Who knows, maybe he could have a crossover with another Nintendo fox someday. While the Switch has no shortage of great 3D platformers, New Super Lucky's Tale shouldn't be too far from the top of your list.

New Super Lucky's Tale is a great platformer that hearkens back to why platformers are beloved in the first place. There is a genuineness to the level design and overall presentation. It's a great mix of mild 3D exploring and traditional side-scrolling action. Those who enjoy the classic platformers or are looking to get a wholesome title for their children should pick this up. The game should be a bit longer, and could use less loading screens, but New Super Lucky's Tale is certainly worth playing. If Playful Studios takes all the greatness of this title and improves upon the criticisms, a perfect experience can be delivered for the next game.

New Super Lucky’s Tale perfectly executes what it proposes: a classic, simple, fun and inviting platform game for all audiences. The little ones will have fun with the charismatic characters and they will be challenged in the right measure, without compromising the fun. Adults will have a great option for those hours that we just want to enjoy a relaxed game and get away from the action of other titles. The original stages, the soundtrack and the diverse challenges help to keep the game fresh.

So while New Super Lucky’s Tale doesn’t do anything “new” and could be viewed as playing it safe, what it does it does well. Solid platforming experiences in 2, 2.5 and 3D environments alongside an adorable saturday morning cartoon script and it was easy to sink hours into it regardless of the platform and if you are a trophy or achievement hunter as there’s plenty to unlock!

New Super Lucky's tale offers a fun and original platform game that will delight all fans of the genre. Visually it has an impeccable appearance, full of color and with very imaginative designs. The difficulty is quite fair with the player and its duration will leave us satisfied. A highly recommended purchase.

Even with the excessive loading times, New Super Lucky’s Tale is a fun, lovable game that fans of platformers should jump into. The countless improvements made are well worth it (even the cornier dialogue), easily making this the best version of Lucky and his adventure. You’ll be ready to become the next great guardian in no time, but you’re great the way you are.

In a nutshell, New Super Lucky’s Tale will remind you of Nintendo’s flagship platformers. It plays really well too. The gameplay is fun in terms of traversal, while the same can’t be said for its combat. If you play games to immerse yourself in an interesting story, this game isn’t for you. It’s the type of game you or a younger family member will want to play on an easy morning. It’s nothing more and nothing less, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing for a game like this.
