One of HAL’s lovable mascots is joining characters like Kirby and Qbby on the Nintendo Switch. A Part Time UFO Switch version was among the October 2020 Nintendo Direct Mini announcements. The game is immediately available on the Nintendo eShop, and it is more than a simple port.

In Part Time UFO, players follow a helpful UFO as it earns money by assisting people. How does it help? By using its grabbing claw to get and move items around to complete objectives and solve puzzles.

In addition to the original game, the Part Time UFO Switch port adds new elements. For example, people playing alone can go through a new Tower of Infinity. This lets you continually stack items for as long as possible. A treasure hunt option will be added. It also seems like there might be new levels, as one screenshot involves Kirby characters. There will be Feats of Glory that unlock a new animated illustration.

There will also be local co-op in this version of Part-Time UFO. People can go through the original jobs with another person if you have someone else on-hand.

You can see the Part Time UFO segment in the October 2020 Nintendo Direct Mini at the 14:28 mark.

The Part Time UFO Switch version is available on the Nintendo eShop now for $8.99. The original Part Time UFO is available on Android and Apple iOS devices.
