Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is coming to the Xbox and Nintendo Switch. The cute battle royale will be available for Xbox Series X and Series, and Xbox One this summer. Its release for the Nintendo Switch will also take place this summer.

Fall Guys launched on August 4 last year on PC and PS4. The game is also backward compatible on PS5. Fall Guys also launched a mobile version but it’s currently available only in China. The battle royale game has been a major success with over 7 million downloads on Steam in its launch month. Fall Guys also became the most downloaded PlayStation Plus title of all time. It also won the ‘Best Community Support’ at The Game Awards 2020.

The online battle royale reminds one of the Japanese show Takeshi’s Castle. It lets you play as one of the sixty jelly-bean-like characters racing among other players, and tackling obstacle courses along the way. It features both solo and team games, and the number of players reduces as the game progresses. The player who grabs the crown first or manages to stay alive the longest wins.

Players can also purchase costumes such as a pineapple or T. Rex. It recently launched the Red Panda costume for Valentine’s Day. Costumes can also be won by playing and winning the game.

Fall Guys developer Mediatonic released Season 2 last fall which features medieval-themed games. It also introduced a ‘Show Selector’ which is a curated playlist for players to pick the types of rounds they prefer to play.
