Publisher Rising Star Games and developer Game Freak have announced Giga Wrecker Alt. for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A release date was not announced.

View the announcement trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Giga Wrecker Alt. is a mixture of exploration and physics. Bring down towering walls and then use the rubble as a platform for navigating each level. Mechanical skill and creative problem solving will be tested.

Giga Wrecker was brought to life through Game Freak’s internal “Gear Project” where its developers are encouraged to come up with intriguing ideas for games outside the company’s normal. The game also features music by video game composer, Shinij Hosoe, known for Ridge Racer and Tekken, among many other titles.

So, Game Freak is developing this alongside Town and the 8th gen Pokemon games, after having released the Let's Go games not so long ago. And then they complain developing Pokemon games on the Switch is "More difficult than [they] expected".

This is Awesome for Xbox from Nintendo devs I know Tembo and this game aren't Minecraft level but , Nintendo just ported 2 games to Xbox . Would be nice if Microsoft brings Jet force gemini or other Ip's to Nintendo beside Minecraft :)
