After nearly a decade of development and a successful year on computers, Owlboy is finally headed to consoles. Plus, new localisations and a Steam discount.

D-Pad Studio has announced that its critically acclaimed platformer Owlboy is headed to consoles next year. The game will be hitting PS4, Xbox One and Switch on 13th February 2018. The news comes exactly a year after the game’s release on PC, Mac and Linux. This news comes hot on the heels of SOEDESCO’s announcement that it will partner with D-Pad Studio to release Owlboy in retail form.

Alongside the console announcement, D-Pad Studio has also announced that the game will be available in more languages. The full roster of languages available in all versions of the game now comprises of: Polish, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Russian, Portuguese, Chinese (Traditional & Simplified), Korean, Japanese and English.

To celebrate the game’s first-year anniversary, it’s got a 40% discount on Steam right now.

As for what the game’s about, here’s a look at the official blurb:

Owlboy is a story-driven platform adventure game, where you can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds! Pick up your friends, and bring them with you as you explore the open skies. Overcome obstacles and greater enemies, in one of the most detailed adventures of this era.

The game began development in 2007 and only wrapped up before launching in 2016. Although this long development cycle led many to wonder if the game was trapped in development hell, it released successfully and secured 100,000 sales by April this year.

Owlboy is presently available on PC, Mac and Linux. Check out the official website here.
