Team17 and Ghost Town Games revealed this morning that the game will be headed to basically every current platform after first being exclusive to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. What's more, this version of the game will have all of the upgrades and additions the next-gen version has received, including all-new accessibility options and the Muppets' Swedish Chef who was added to the mix. The game will be available on March 23rd, 2021.
