However, there is no planned release of the update to consoles for the year. We’ll keep a lookout for any future announcements.

“Thanks to the community feedback, we’re now happy to come back with a significantly better version of Nocturnal” said Sunnyside Games co-founder Gabriel Sonderegger. “This update offers numerous improvements that we hope you’ll enjoy!”

Nocturnal has players explore a variety of dark ruins, offering a range of optional trials for those looking to test their skills. For those who relish a genuine challenge, the game provides various speedrunning features such as quicker transitions, the ability to skip cutscenes, and a timer that can be paused. For the most daring adventurers, there’s Permadeath Mode, where you must complete the entire journey with just a single life at your disposal.
