LEGO Horizon Adventures Announced for Switch

A spin-off of the popular PlayStation exclusive, Horizon, has been announced and comes in the form of LEGO Horizon Adventures!

Why are we reporting on this? Well, bizarrely, as well as the PlayStation 5 and PC, the title has also been announced for the Nintendo Switch!

Here’s the official word from the PlayStation Blog: (Perhaps the first time we’ve ever sourced them!)

During today’s Summer Game Fest showcase, we announced the brand-new action adventure game, LEGO Horizon Adventures, to be launched during the 2024 Holiday season on PlayStation 5, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Co-developed by Guerrilla and Studio Gobo, LEGO Horizon Adventures is a playful and light-hearted story inspired by the events of the world of Horizon.

In a distant future, the land is made of LEGO bricks and incredible dinosaur-like machines roam the Earth. Aloy, the game’s leading hero, is found in a cave as a baby and raised by a grizzled huntsman called Rost, who teaches her the way of the wilds. One day, Aloy embarks on a quest to discover her true destiny. Guided by a thousand-year-old hologram of a scientist called Elisabet, Aloy must confront Helis, the leader of a group of sun worshipers who bow to an Ancient Evil shrouded in mystery. There’s much more in store for Aloy and her friends, as their adventure sends them across the tallest mountains and deepest cauldrons — all beautifully recreated in LEGO elements. 

Follow your own adventure or share the fun with another player via couch or online co-op. LEGO Horizon Adventures has been designed for two-player action without the need for split-screen, providing an opportunity for family and friends to develop connections through collaborative play. 

Sony’s PlayStation division has been open to porting some of their exclusive titles to PC in recent times, and now it seems they are extending that offer to the Nintendo Switch, though as of right now they still aren’t releasing anything for the Xbox platform. 

Sony has already released multiple editions of MLB: The Show on the Nintendo Switch in recent years.

As a way to reap money back amid the rising cost of videogame development, and thanks to the continued success of the Switch, this isn’t the first time this year we’ve seen previous exclusives from other consoles find their way to Nintendo, as covered in our previous article: Four Games Previously Exclusive to Xbox Coming to Switch.
