Jotun Coming to Consoles This Summer

Jotun hit the indie market last year in an axe-wielding frenzy of Nordic legend. Initially released on Steam by developers Thunder Lotus, this hand-drawn beauty is has been cleared for a summer release on Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U.

You can read my November 2015 review of the Steam release over at That Video Games Blog here. However to cut it short what sets this title apart from the greenlit tides of indie Steam games is in the title’s devotion to artistic design. Each level you encounter as Thora, a dad Norse warrior, is a drastic departure from the last, and uses intricately sketched artwork to signify this. While the game is essentially a string of boss battles, it is this artwork that needs room to breathe on bigger, HD screens – which is exactly what these console releases will give it.

Jotun-610-2

The console releases will receive a new “Valhalla Mode” – essentially a rush of bosses to defeat, and the PC version will receive this patch after the console versions have gone live.
