Today at Gamescom 2021’s Opening Night event, Jumanji: The Curse Returns was officially announced for PC and Nintendo Switch. Players will be able to join in with up to three friends to experience a contemporary digital style of the famous board game when the game releases on PC Sept. 1, with a Nintendo Switch version arriving later this year.
Developers Marmalade had the following to say regarding the game’s release:
In this iconic new release, up to four players will experience the infamous cursed board game from the classic 1995 film, presented in a contemporary digital style. The combination of board game and fun, casual co-op adventure will launch on PC on the September 1st. The Nintendo Switch version will follow later this year.
JUMANJI: The Curse Returns brings up to 4 players together to take on the game and face the creatures and plants it sends into our world. You’ll be working as a team to reach the center of the board in order to save the town of Brantford from invasive jungle wildlife.
In JUMANJI: The Curse Returns, gameplay follows a simple format; roll the dice, read the riddles, and prepare to face the dangers Jumanji will unleash. For every round there’s a time limit, keeping gameplay moving from start to finish. Cooperation is key. Match the right items in the right moments, manage token power-ups and apply bonus abilities to banish a danger in a single move!
You’ll win or lose together, so you’ll be cooperating with your friends from the start. Whether you’re facing a stampede, or a combination of crocodiles, piranhas and the hunter, Van Pelt, you’ll need teamwork to make it to the center of the board.
