Norse adventure game Jotun comes to consoles in September

On PS4, Wii U and Xbox One; PC gets an update for free

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Jotun, the hand-drawn Norse mythology adventure that launched last year on PC, is coming to consoles in early September with a "Valhalla Edition," Thunder Lotus Games announced.

The Wii U version launches Sept. 8 and the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions launch on Sept. 9., for $14.99 on all platforms. Jotun: Valhalla Edition adds in "Valhalla Mode" which is a boss rush mode with enemies tougher than the game's standard fare.

Owners of the Windows PC, Mac and Linux version that launched last year will get all the new content for free in an update on Sept. 9.

In Jotun, players are a Viking warrior who died ingloriously and is trying to win back the gods' favor so she may enter Valhalla. That faces her with hunting giants called jotun. The game is rendered in a hand-drawn animated style. For more, see a preview here.

Jotun was successfully funded on Kickstarter at more than $64,000 back in 2014. At the time, creator William Dubé did not promise console ports. But in March, Thunder Lotus announced they were on the way.
