Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary Will Be Crashing Onto Switch

Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary, currently playable on PC (Steam), iOS, and Android, will head to Xbox and Switch according to publisher BBG Entertainment announced.

The information stems from a press release shared by Japanese publisher Worker Bee. This pubisher will also release the Switch version in Japan.

Gematsu contacted BBG Entertainment for clarification since the press release mentioned “other consoles”. This term also includes PlayStation 4, but BBG Entertainment is not yet an approved publisher on PlayStation 4 even though they are approved for Xbox.

The console version of Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary will be exhibited at Gamescom 2019, which runs from August 20 to 24 at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany.
