New Nintendo Entertainment System games don’t pop up all that often. Santa’s Magical Christmas Sleigh is just such a new title. What is cool here is, it is a 2D side scrolling action game – a genre that is not all that often explored anymore. Add to the mix a very jolly holiday theme and you have an interesting idea for a NES game. Did I mention Santa’s Magical Christmas Sleigh is possibly coming to the Xbox platform, Nintendo Switch, and PC world? That is if enough fans support it via Kickstarter.
Santa’s Magical Christmas Sleigh is billed as a classic puzzle platformer for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Judging by the screen shots and gameplay video on their Kickstarter page, it certainly seems that that description is close.
What would a NES game be without a delightful story? Santa’s Magical Christmas Sleigh involves Glinch who attempted to stop Christmas from coming by stealing Santa’s magical sleigh. Santa is on a quest to get his sleigh back in time to make Christmas magic for all the kids of the world. Your job is to help Santa complete that goal.
