Celeste release date confirmed

Celeste release date confirmed

It was reported earlier this week that Celeste, a new action platformer by the creators of Towerfall Ascension, would release in January. At the time, it was anyone's guess when in January, but during today's Nintendo Direct presentation a release date of January 25 was confirmed (and yes, naturally, that includes the PC version).

So, what is Celeste actually?

  • A narrative-driven, single-player adventure like mom used to make, with a charming cast of characters and a touching story of self-discovery
  • A massive mountain teeming with 600+ screens of hardcore platforming challenges and devious secrets
  • Brutal B-side chapters to unlock, built for only the bravest mountaineers
  • IGF “Excellence in Audio” finalist, with over 2 hours of original music led by dazzling live piano and catchy synth beats

The controls are simple and accessible - simply jump, air-dash, and climb - but with layers of expressive depth to master, where every death is a lesson. Lightning-fast respawns keep you climbing as you uncover the mysteries of the mountain and brave its many perils.

The game is a challenging, action-oriented platformer with over 600 screens of twitch-oriented play. You'll play as Madeleine, who must (or wants to, anyway) scale Celeste Mountain for some no doubt consequential reason. What matters is that the art style is gorgeous.

Well, I'm not a fan of pixel art games, however I enjoyed The Big Elk. Played it like five times.

Looks like a game for me. Again Pixel-Art, but at least some with charm and gameplay!

What are you waiting for? Syberia 3 has approached...and it was a technical mess (disappointed hype)!

not so like 8bit, but wish luck anyway

Never play alone, MMO gives a more complete illusion of real life... xD
