Nintendo 64 Platformer ‘Glover’ Returns, Just Not On Switch

Who remembers Interactive Studios’ Glover? If you had an N64, you likely snagged a handful of 3D platformers from Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie and its sequel, to Goemon’s Great Adventure and Chameleon Twist. There was a glut of them on the system, but not many have been ported to other systems.

Glover, however, is bucking the trend. On 20th April, you’ll be able to play Glover, courtesy of Piko Interactive, on something that isn’t an N64 cart, PlayStation disc, or an old PC CD-ROM (remember those?). Sadly, it’s not coming to the console you’d expect it to, though – at least not yet.

While the game is currently only announced for Steam, it seems daft that a port of an N64 game will not come to the Switch, given its origins. If you have a Steam Deck though, it’s hopefully compatible with that, so you can still play it in the palm of your hands a few weeks from now.
