New Super Lucky's Tale, the Switch updated version of Xbox One exclusive Super Lucky's Tale--which was itself a new version of VR title Lucky's Tale--is coming to PS4 and Xbox One. The game, which greatly expands on the original, will release on systems other than Switch for the first time.

Developer Playful Studios announced the game's impending release on Twitter, although a date is not available yet.

In a follow-up tweet, the New Super Lucky's Tale account addressed a fan who owned the original game on Xbox One, and was wondering if the "New" version would be available as an update. New Super Lucky's Tale is being treated as a "new" game, though, as quite a bit has been changed--so fans of the original will need to buy this version of the game anew.

"We rebuilt the game from the ground up...new levels, expanded story, fully rotatable camera, tighter controls, and improvements to nearly ever other aspect of the game," the tweet reads. "So it's essentially a new game."

Back in January, Playful Studios was hit by significant layoffs. Around the same time, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze lead designer Stephen Dupree left the company to return to Donkey Kong and Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios.
