Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary

Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary, which is currently available for PC (Steam), iOS, and Android, is coming to Xbox One and Switch, publisher BBG Entertainment announced.

The news comes via a press release from Japanese publisher Worker Bee, which will release the Switch version in Japan. The press release mentions that the game is also planned for release on “other consoles including Xbox One.”

Gematsu contacted BBG Entertainment for clarification. “Other consoles” also includes PlayStation 4, but whereas BBG Entertainment is already an approved publisher on Xbox One, it has yet to become an approved publisher on PlayStation 4.

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.
