Planet of Lana finally has a proper release date: May 23rd.
Released on both PC and Xbox consoles (as well as on Game Pass on day one), it was previously listed as a spring release.
From publisher Thunderful and Swedish developer Wishful, the game is a beautiful-looking cinematic puzzle platformer with a gorgeous, Ghibli-esque aesthetic. Check out some gameplay below.
It is set on an alien planet where the titular young girl Lana and her animal companion Mui embark on a rescue mission to save their sister. If it sounds like The Last Guardian, that game’s composer Takeshi Furukawa contributed to the score.
Back in February, I got a hands-off look at the game (among other indies on its way to Xbox this year) and was immediately enamored with both the visuals and the adorable companion.
But beyond that, there’s an intriguing world full of strange creatures and dangerous robotic enemies mixed in with intricate environmental puzzles.
“We are very pleased to finally reveal that Planet of Lana is coming to PC and Xbox on May 23rd,” said Adam Stjernljus, director of Wishful. “Thank you to everyone who has shown so much love and support for our game over the years. We can’t wait for you to plunge into the magical world we’ve worked so hard to create and experience this adventure.”
It’s finally time! With this brand new trailer, we are happy to announce that Lana’s Planet will be launching on PC, @Xbox and Xbox Game Pass on May 23! #indie games #xbox pic.twitter.com/DVjH4w9No7
