What you need to know

  • Snake is a cult classic game concept from the beginning of gaming.
  • The title became incredibly popular on Nokia phones.
  • A 4K reboot is coming to Xbox One on February 5.
  • It's unclear how much it'll cost at the moment.

Did you play Snake on those Nokia phones back in the day? Did you spend hundreds of hours trying to get the largest snake possible over the course of many months? Well, if the answer to that is 'yes,' then you'll be happy to know that a 4K version of Snake is coming to Xbox One on February 5.

This information was revealed in a post by Xbox Wire (opens in new tab). You can read the description of the game below.

Nibble your way through 100 amazing rounds in FIVE worlds with 20 different bosses in this 4K reboot of the classic game Snake. The quest is easy: avoid all obstacles and eat the remaining fruit. The reptile will increase in size and speed after eating, especially if you eat the meat; soda can make you smaller again; touch a turbo booster and your speed will increase rapidly for a few seconds and try not to crash!

Are you excited to try out Snake on February 5? Did you expect it to be Xbox One X Enhanced? Let us know.
