Today, Plug In Digital announced that it will publish Neckbolt’s Yono and the Celestial Elephants for the Nintendo Switch. The adventure game stars an elephant who wants to protect his world, and will be released on October 12.
Ready your trunk, it’s time for an adventure!
Elephants are a mighty protectors of the world, born from the stars once per millennium. This is the age of Elephant Yono. But Yono is still so very young and in a kingdom inhabited by feudal Humans, undead Bonewights and robotic Mekani, it’s not easy to keep one’s trunk out of trouble.
Yono and the Celestial Elephant is a grand adventure, featuring carefully designed puzzles, treasure hunts, a sprinkling combat and a world full of people. Play as a young elephant tasked to save a world he’s never seen before, and explore the rich history of a kingdom where humans, zombies and robots live side by side.
The game looks adorable, and I can’t wait to see how Neckbolt ties in different story elements within its gameplay system. Yono and the Celestial Elephants will be released October 12 exclusively for the Switch, but in the meantime, check out the PAX West trailer.
