Funcom and Mighty Kingdom have announced that Conan Chop Chop will release on Nintendo Switch.
Believed to have been an April Fools’ Day joke, it turns out that this action-adventure with roguelike elements is real – supporting up to four players in local multiplayer.
Set in Hyboria, players are challenged to thwart wizard Thoth-Amon’s evil plan to resurrect the even eviler wizard Xaltotun. Succeed, and he will condemn the world to an eternity of darkness and enslavement.
With randomly generated maps and armed with tons of weapons and abilities, you must summon all your courage and swordsmanship to stop him.
“Keeping this a secret has been a hardship,” admits Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “The feedback we got from fans when we released the April Fools’ Day trailer was amazing and remarkably unanimous, and so I have been itching to give them the good news ever since.
“But don’t be fooled by the game’s humoristic and quirky looks. There is a lot of hard work being put into this, and the game should thrill roguelike fans and hack & slash fans alike.”
Conan Chop Chop will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 3rd.
