Towerfall Developer’s Celeste Picks Up New Trailer, Platform

Matt Thorson, the lead behind 2014’s breakout local multiplayer title Towerfall: Ascension, has put together the first trailer for his next title, challenging 2D platformer Celeste.

Previously discussed shortly before last year’s PSX convention, Celeste shares plenty with Towerfall in terms of its art style and platforming mechanics, as seen in the trailer below. However, with the difficulty now coming from pits and spikes as opposed to imprecisely shot arrows, Celeste is looking to set itself apart in what is rapidly becoming a crowded indie genre.

Celeste is set for release later this year on PS4, PC, and, as revealed in the trailer below, Nintendo Switch.
