Private Division and Evening Star have announced that their “imaginative new platforming action game” Penny’s Big Breakaway is coming to Nintendo Switch.

In this colourful adventure, you play as aspiring court performer Penny who is on the run after her yo-yo created quite the commotion during her audition at the royal palace. Eddie the Emperor has commanded his loyal penguin forces to capture Penny and her stringed companion, Yo-Yo.

You must swing, dash, flip, zip and trick your way through challenging levels to make your escape through 12 vibrant, geometric worlds. Promising “non-stop action,” penguins will burst from walls, rush over cliffs and attempt to dogpile you in an effort to stop your progress.

Maintaining your momentum will be important, as, alongside the Story Mode, there is a Time Attack Mode in which you can try and achieve the perfect run and set high scores on the leaderboard for the world to see.

“At Evening Star, we have a deep passion for expressive, character-driven games that focus on a concise and satisfying move-set. For our debut title, we challenged ourselves to bring that approach into not only a new IP, but to an entire 3D world,” said Christian Whitehead, Creative Director at Evening Star. “Penny’s Big Breakaway has been a wonderful opportunity for our team to grow creatively and technically as a studio, and we can’t wait for players to perform plenty of slick tricks with Penny and Yo-Yo!”

Take-Two Interactive chief strategy officer and head of Private Division Michael Worosz adds: “Evening Star are experts in the platforming genre, having been entrusted with an iconic gaming franchise, and delivered one of the best platforming experiences in recent years. Penny’s Big Breakaway is an exciting debut title that brings an all-new protagonist to life in a memorable world, and it has an enormous opportunity to be a smashing success due to its broad appeal.”

Penny’s Big Breakaway will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2024.
