Outright Games and Dr. Seuss Enterprises have announced that The Grinch: Christmas Adventures will release on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.

Casual Brothers is the developer behind this “vividly colourful, side-scrolling platformer” that takes inspiration from the classic children’s book, How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Accompanied by your faithful dog Max, you must set out on a quest as The Grinch to ruin Christmas for The Whos. That will challenge you to complete dastardly missions to steal all the presents as you confront the spirit of Christmas in Who-ville, from joyful carolling to twinkling fairy lights.

Overcoming puzzles will unlock special abilities and gadgets such as snowballs that can freeze creatures, a Santa disguise for stealthy sneaking, a lasso candy cane and a jumping jetpack. You will also be able to use a sleigh or snowboard to help speed up your devious antics around Who-ville.

Whether playing alone or with a friend in two-player local co-op, as the story progresses you will have the chance to discover the spirit of Christmas and help the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes.

“The Grinch is one of the most enduring and festive brands in entertainment with a 60+ year history. We appreciate that Dr. Seuss Enterprises understands how video games celebrate a beloved story while modernising a classic work for new audiences,” explains Outright Games COO Stephanie Malham. “We are grateful to bring this timeless tale to families and to be trusted with creating a new video game for this generation.”

Casual Brothers CTO Hernán Castillo adds: “With The Grinch: Christmas Adventures we were motivated to create an accessible platformer that is fun, and can be played by fans of all ages. We’ve worked closely with Dr. Seuss Enterprises to determine how to remain faithful to the original story, and build the definitive interactive experience in game form, while also creating our own 2023 version of the Grinch, Max, and Who-ville.”

The Grinch: Christmas Adventures will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 13 October 2023.
