A week ago, Super Lucky's Tale developer Playful said that it planned on releasing an expansion or sequel. Unfortunately, the studio didn't make any statements other than a cryptic post on the game's Twitter account. The game is an adorable platformer which launched on Xbox One and PC a few months ago. The title received mixed reviews from critics, so it was unclear if the game would ever receive a sequel or expansion in the future.
Super Lucky's Tale starts off when the antagonist Jinx steals a mysterious artifact called the Book of Ages. The Book of Ages contains entire worlds and simple creatures who are no match Jinx's spoiled children. It's up to Lucky, a cute little fox who wants to be a hero, to save the day. Just like any platformer, you need to run, jump, spin and burrow your way across a wide variety of environments including deserts, castles, forests and much more. The game also runs at native 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X and supports Xbox Play Anywhere.
Today, an expansion for Super Lucky's Tale called "Gilly Island" appeared on the Microsoft Store for $4.99.
Fresh from his victory over Jinx, Lucky is looking forward to a day off but the Book of Ages has other plans. Lucky is once again sucked in, this time emerging in a tropical paradise known as Gilly Island. Despite its beauty, it's quickly apparent that something strange is happening on Gilly Island. Lucky learns that singer Lady Meowmalade has hijacked the island to throw the greatest party ever seen as she celebrates the release of her latest single. Now, Lucky must rescue the island and its vacationers from Meowmalade's chaos before it ruins their fun and ultimately wrecks havoc to all the worlds within the Book of Ages.
The expansion contains something for new and returning players because it's filled with classic platforming challenges, mind-bending puzzles, mysterious foxholes, and treacherous obstacle courses. You also meet many new and old characters as you burrow your way across levels.
In our review, we said that Super Lucky's Tale's "adorable nature, strange characters, and quirky dialogues make you fall in love with the game even though the camera controls are a bit off. If you're looking for a title which is guaranteed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, then be sure to give this one a go." Players should consider purchasing the base game and expansion if they like cute and responsive platformers.
