This news comes from a recently updated FAQ on Playtonic’s webpage which also states that Kickstarter backers who selected Wii U as their preferred platform “can move their pledge free-of-charge to any of the versions launching on April 11th (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac or Linux) or upgrade to the Nintendo Switch version when we announce further details in 2017.”

A tweet from Playtonic also states that you can “Pre-order on consoles or PC now to instantly unlock the Toybox demo” which was previously only available to Kickstarter backers. Is the nostalgia hitting you as hard as it’s hitting me?
