The true king of the jungle
We’ve seen a lot of games leaked through official ratings boards listings lately, but today brings us a good, old-fashioned retailer leak.
Amazon Spain has accidentally shared a listing for Skull Island: Rise of Kong, and Switch is among the supported platforms. According to the listing, GameMill Entertainment (Avatar: TLA - Quest for Balance, Nick All-Star Brawl, etc.) is behind development.
Embark on a third-person action adventure to avenge the death of your parents at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator: Gaw. Conquer waves of primal beasts and defeat your archenemy’s minions to become the rightful king of Skull Island. Cross the mysterious island and discover the history and secrets it hides as you come across swamps, waterfalls, jungles, and caves full of skullites that give power to the flora and fauna of the island.
UPDATE: Hours after the game’s leak, the official announcement has come in, complete with a trailer. You can get the complete breakdown of Skull Island: Rise of Kong below.
Your reign is at hand! Skull Island: Rise of Kong arrives on Switch later this year. Based on the rich history of Skull Island developed by creator Joe DeVito and based on Merian C.
