The Big Con: GRIFT OF THE YEAR EDITION
😎Coming June 1st 2022👻
— The Big Con ✨ AVAILABLE NOW on Xbox PC & Switch! ✨ (@MightyYell) May 5, 2022
The Big Con follows a spunky teenager named Ali as she travels across the U.S. to steal enough money to pay off loan sharks and save her mother’s business. The Skybound Games-published title originally launched on Xbox and PC, and those who own the game on those platforms will receive the Grift of the Year Edition update for free. Meanwhile, Switch owners can experience the updated version of the game by default upon launch.
Notably, The Big Con was one of eight games to be selected in last year’s inaugural Tribeca Games Spotlight, and the only Canadian title of the bunch.
