New SUPER LUCKY’S TALE
New Super Lucky’s Tale is rated E and its only potentially objectionable content is some cartoon violence.

New Super Lucky’s Tale is planned for launch on the Nintendo Switch on November 8, 2019.
Nintendo also revealed a number of ports spanning decades of gaming history and covering a dizzying variety of genres that includes Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise, Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition, Doom 64, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore, Trials of Mana, and Vampyr.
