With the release of Yooka-Laylee a month ago, there is a new 3D platformer in the horizon called Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island that seeks to recreate the feel of that sadly now rare genre. We will play as feline Skylar Lynxe alongside her feathery friend Plux Owlsley on a quest to stop the evil CRT and his army of televisions.
As you may have gathered from that last sentence, it is a lighthearted title, and it will be set in a colorful world powered by the Unreal 4 Engine. To better explore the island you will get access to a jetpack alongside some gadgets that will allow you to slow down time and a magnetic arm to toss missiles right back at your enemies.
Hidden around the island will be natives to rescue and shiny gems to collect, fueling that urge to explore every nook and cranny. Altogether, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is shaping up to be a blast from the past with its release date of May 19 rapidly closing in. It will be priced at 15 US dollars and will launch for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and the PC. Its new trailer can be found below:
