A huge does of 90s nostalgia
The Big Con: Grift of the Year Edition was announced for Switch just a couple of weeks back, and at that time we heard it was launching sometime in Summer 2022. Turns out we didn’t have to wait long for more specific details! We now know that The Big Con: Grift of the Year Edition is set for a June 1st, 2022 release.
A classic coming-of-age story steeped in nostalgic humor and ‘90s style, The Big Con stars Ali, a teenager turned con artist trying to save her mom’s video store from unscrupulous loan sharks any way she can. In this fun updated edition of the hit wholesome crime adventure, players will find extra crafty puzzles, witty dialogue, cool collectables, and wacky quests. How you make your money is in your hands: pickpockets, pick locks, persuade marks, pilfer prizes, pull off disguises, and even master the all-new Rad Skater arcade game.
Also, your ears don’t deceive you in the latest trailer for The Big Con: Grift of the Year Edition. That is indeed Rockapella performing the game’s theme song! For those who aren’t a billion years old like me, Rockapella is an a capella group that rose to celebrity status in the 90’s thanks to their performance of the theme song for Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?.
