Sumo Digital (LittleBigPlanet 3) announced today that Snake Pass, their physics-based puzzle-platform game, is releasing digitally on March 28 in North America and March 29 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A price wasn’t given today, and Sumo said a physical release “depends on demand,” as they’re focused on the digital version right now.

In addition to HDR support on both PS4 and PS4 Pro, Snake Pass played on a PS4 Pro includes a higher resolution (on a 4K TV) and a higher frame-rate. “Viewed on a 1080p monitor, Snake Pass will feature a whole host of performance improvements that make the game stand out so much more,” Sumo’s James Megretton added about the PS4 Pro support.

Snake Pass includes 15 levels, four world themes, a soundtrack composed by David Wise, an “organic difficulty curve for players of all abilities,” and hidden features Sumo isn’t talking about yet. Here’s the description:

When a mysterious intruder threatens the tranquillity of their home, it’s up to Noodle the Snake and Doodle the Hummingbird to embark on a daring journey to save the day. Controlling this dynamic duo, players must become one with the snake as they slither, curl and climb their way through 15 levels across 4 increasingly challenging themed worlds. Snake Pass is a unique take on the platforming genre that is intuitive and fun to learn, but will gradually test your snake charming skills to the limit!

Snake Pass creator Seb Liese said:

Snake Pass is a real passion project for the team. It’s been so fun creating our own characters, visual style and establishing our own voice as IP creators. Our mission with Snake Pass, was to make the simple act of controlling Noodle the Snake as fun as possible. Once players start to “think like a snake”, they will be amazed at the incredible feats of acrobatics they are capable of.

If you’re hoping for a PlayStation Vita version, Sumo said, “Sssadly no plans at this time I’m afraid! We’re focusing our efforts onto PS4 and PS4 Pro currently.”
