Although the game is confirmed to support up to 4 players for couch co-op and remote play, Vikings on trampolines doesn’t appear to have online multiplayer, at least not the one that’s been announced yet. The game will have full controller support, as well as an accessible control scheme allowing you to use one hand.

The previous game from the Norwegian studio, Owl, was an adventure platformer notable for its considerable development cycle – spanning nearly a decade. Upon release, owl was well received and nominated for a series of awards including Game of the Year at the New York Game Awards. Given D-Pad Studios’ history, gamers should be able to expect a well-polished and responsive platforming experience in Vikings on trampolines.
