Last summer Towerfall developer Matt Thorson announced a new single-player 2D platformer called Celeste and now that game has been confirmed for a Nintendo Switch release later this year.

It will also be coming to PS4 and Steam.

As you can see in the following trailer, Celeste is a series of single-screen challenges, much in the vein of Super Meat Boy. The game focuses on the titular character, a spunky redhead, trying to climb a mountain. It appears to be a haunted mountain too, by the looks of it, what with all the creepy ghosts and a gothic mansion that wouldn't look out of place in an early Castlevania adventure.

To get a feel for Celeste, you can check out its free prototype via browser.

Now if only Thorson could bring Towerfall to Switch. It is indeed the perfect party game for on-the-go group shenanigans!
