Cronella’s Mansion – the spiritual successor to Crazy Mansion – is heading to the Switch in 2025

Spanish indie developer Straynus announced it today. Cronella’s Mansion, an open-world adventure game intended as a spiritual successor to the Lucasfilm classic Maniac Mansion, will be headed to the Nintendo Switch in 2025. However, Straynus isn’t stopping there. Fans of classic gaming will be happy to hear that this game is also coming to NES, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and PC. (What? No virtual boy?)

The trailer above shows Cronella’s Mansion running on these different systems, which instantly tickled nostalgia in my head. According to a recent press release, the different versions of the game are “designed to take advantage of the strengths of different platforms to create a unique and exciting experience, no matter which platform you’re playing on.”

While the game is nearing completion on all systems (each programmed from scratch independently of the others), Straynus is launching a Kickstarter to be able to physically release the title. Backers will have the opportunity to fund various prizes at various levels, including a big boxed version of the PC/MS-DOS game on DVD and floppy disk (limited to 500 copies worldwide).
