Yesterday's Summer Game Fest event had a whole lot going on -- announcement-wise -- so you may have missed this little bit with everything going on, but if you're a fan of thatgamecompany's Journey, Flower, or Flow, you're gonna want to know about this. During the stream yesterday, thatgamecompany announced their latest game, Sky: Children of the Light will be making the jump from mobile devices to mobile consoles when it launches on Nintendo Switch on June 26th. Following that, the game's next season, Le Petit Prince will launch July 6.

Now, we're not sure if the Nintendo Switch version will be free-to-play or not, and some accounts seem to be saying that even on mobile, the game is more f2p-to-start than straight up free. I can tell you, from what little I've played, that it does have some microtransactions in the form of cosmetics and other items. The game is also crossplay, so Nintendo players should have no problem finding other players to team up and interact with.

Much like Journey, Sky is a traveling game featuring a mechanic similar to Journey's scarf. Only, in this case you're growing a glider/cape as you progress. The objective is to find the spirits of people and help them return to the stars. But you don't have to do it alone. Just like in Journey, you'll run into other players and can team up to complete objectives.

So, if you're into thatgamecompany's really chill games, this is something to look forward to soon.
