Couch co-op brawler you like has just received new content that will entertain you during holidays season on Switch. Enjoy new maps and improved classic arenas. And don’t miss the opportunity to get new cosmetics in a series of bi-weekly PvE challenges.

SpiderHeck is a fast-paced couch co-op brawler where spiders battle it out in a deadly dance of chaos. Choose to take on waves of ferocious enemies as a lone wolf (spider), or join forces with your friends, then challenge them to a duel afterwards so you can gleefully watch them do a neat trick before they launch themselves face-first into the lava.

You can find the full patch notes for this update below.
