NUK PR - FUN COMES IN MANY SHAPES, AS SNIPPERCLIPS ARRIVES ON NINTENDO eSHOP FOR NINTENDO SWITCH ON 3RD MARCH

Players can also snap up a set of coloured Joy-Con and a download code for this multiplayer puzzle hit in a special limited bundle from 10th March

24th February, 2017 – When it comes to solving puzzles, it’s often said that two heads are better than one, and families and friends of all ages can put that to the test by giving Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! a go when it launches on Nintendo eShop for the brand new Nintendo Switch console on 3rd March 2017. A special limited bundle containing two additional Joy-Con controllers and a download code for the game will also become available at retail from 10th March.

Snipperclips arrives as a launch title for Nintendo Switch, the brand new console by Nintendo that transforms to suit players’ situation, allowing them to enjoy their games anytime, anywhere, with anyone.

A breakout hit at Nintendo Switch hands-on events around the world, Snipperclips is a charming puzzle game that encourages players to communicate, cooperate and think creatively in order to overcome the various brain-teasing challenges on offer. When playing together, each player will hold their Joy-Con horizontally and cut each other’s paper characters, Snip and Clip, into new shapes to solve all sorts of puzzling situations. Developed by London-based indie developer SFB Games in partnership with Nintendo, it requires up to four players to work together – or compete against each other – across three main game modes: think creatively to puzzle your way through a WORLD of fun (1-2 players, cooperative), invite more players to join and get a PARTY started (2-4 players, cooperative), or go up against each other in a frenetic, fast-paced BLITZ match (2-4 players, competitive).

Those looking to share the joy of puzzle-solving with additional friends or family members can check out the special limited Joy-Con bundle coming to retail on 10th March, which contains a set of two coloured Joy-Con (neon red/neon blue), along with a download code for Snipperclips. Players will surely soon discover that not just two, but three, or even four heads can be better than one!

Additionally, Nintendo Switch owners will be able to try out the game free of charge, as a downloadable demo version will be available on Nintendo eShop from 3rd March.

How will your powers of cooperation and puzzle-solving shape up? Find out on 3rd March, when Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! launches on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch for £17.99 / €19.99. A special limited bundle containing a pair of Joy-Con controllers and a download code for the game will be available from 10th March.

Nintendo UK on Switch availability and approaching promotion

These snippets come from a MCV interview with Nintendo UK General Manager Nicolas Wegnez...

On pre-orders and availability on day one
''It’s true pre-orders are very strong but we still expect Nintendo Switch to be available at some retailers on Day One. We do expect shipments to steadily come.''

How they plan to promote the Nintendo Switch
''We have seen that having hands on with Nintendo Switch really does help people to understand its appeal. This is even more true when you can experience how to switch between gameplay modes, use the Joy-Con in different ways or, yes, feel that surprising ‘HD Rumble’ feature.

For all the above, we are working on sampling plans to try and get Nintendo Switch into as many people’s hands as possible. However, living in this digital era we recognise the significance of online tools, therefore we have a comprehensive range of online assets for all our e-commerce partners to embrace.''

Snipperclips - Japanese site open, tons of screens/art/footage, details on single player & "map themes"

Tons of footage here

Snipperclips is going to be a launch game for the Switch in Japan. To get people psyched, the official site has been opened with a ton of screens and art. Make sure to hit up the link above to check it all out!

That's not all the site offers up, though. We get another confirmation that the game does include single player, but you'll still control both characters. You simply press a button to switch between the two.

On top of that, we have some info on the game "map themes" you'll be visiting. In other words, these are what the games worlds or levels will be themed like.

- simple theme has small mini-games like shooting a ball into a basket or sharpening a pencisl
- second theme is science, which includes tougher mini-games that require the use of fluids ,beakers, squids, & cards
- third theme is tropical, which has a dark themed map with a retro style and a good amount of difficulty

We don't know how many levels/challenges there are in each theme or if there are more than 3 themes, but it certainly seems like there's a lot of content packed into each one!
