The aptly titled It Came From Space and Ate Our Brains was pretty well received when it landed on Steam in the dim and misty pasts of 2015. The game broke out of its at a glance Minecraft-clone visual aesthetic by being a pretty entertaining 4-player top-down arcade shooter, and the abstract art style actually made it easier to differentiate friends and enemies. Now developer Triangle Studios is bringing the game to PS4, Xbox One and Switch sometime in 2020. I'm already eager to add this to my Switch library because the more multiplayer party games the better. You can check out the new trailer below, and we'll let you know as soon as we have a concrete release date.
