Outright Games and Dr. Seuss Enterprises have announced that The Grinch: Christmas Adventures is now available on Nintendo Switch.

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.

“It has been an incredible pleasure to work with Dr. Seuss Enterprises to translate the beloved story of ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas!’ into the world of video games,” explains Outright Games chief operating officer Stephanie Malham. “We’re bringing this incredible adventure to a whole new generation of fans, and it’s been an exciting experience adapting the core elements that make the book such an enduring classic into a completely different entertainment medium.”

We wanted to keep the spirit of the book alive within our game and side-scrolling platform adventures are a timeless game design that is familiar to gamers across generations and skill levels.”
