Dogmelon Games has announced that Baron: Fur Is Gonna Fly will release on Nintendo Switch next month.
This high-flying party showdown will see up to eight players fight for the skies using Gatling guns, freeze rays, and anvils to take out rival pilots.
After responding to a call to arms, animals have taken flight in cutting-edge early 20th Century aviation technology. Biplanes.
They must fulfil their solemn duty in taking each other down in wacky combat so that they can bring glory to their species.
Spin, dive and loop through cascades of bullets and avoid perilously crashing to the ground below to become ruler of the skies.
You can choose between eight cartoony critters like the high-flying sausage dog Baron von Fluffe-Botte, or Colonel Hock, a motherly pig following her dreams of flight.
Each hero has their own style, voice, and victory theme, and will take to the skies in four “semi-historically” accurate aircraft that each has its own stats – covering balancing weight, handling, speed, and armour.
There are more than 13 outlandish weapons to shoot your enemies out of the sky, such as the colourful Balloon Bomb, Flamethrower, or Stinky Fish. Crashing is only a “minor setback,” as you are returned to the sky moments before your defeat to continue your aerial dogfight.
“In between crafting all the animal puns we can handle we’ve focused on capturing that chaotic couch multiplayer feeling,” explains Dogmelon Games lead developer Anthony Wiese.
“Our aim from the start was to make Baron as much ludicrous fun as possible and from players reactions so far we’ve done just that.”
Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 4th March 2020 priced at $20.
