Today, Chico and the Magic Orchards finally launches for Nintendo Switch in Canada and France on March 5th 2024. Although the game has been widely available throughout Europe and the Americas, it was not previously available for purchase on the Nintendo eShop in Canada and France.

In celebration of the game’s arrival in new regions, Chico and the Magic Orchards is on a worldwide discount of 15% on all platforms starting on the 5th and lasting through the 8th.

Solve puzzles by rolling a giant walnut in this retro-handheld-inspired adventure. Explore a variety of levels each with unique mechanics. Help Chico build his winter stash and get home! When Chico the chubby-cheeked chipmunk stumbles into a portal in the forest, he’s transported to a magical world! Here he finds giant walnuts galore, but getting them home won’t be easy! Solve puzzles and challenges across a variety of unique levels, gather a horde of giant walnuts, and help Chico get back to his forest!

With unique dual-mode gameplay, you’ll have to really use your nut to crack these worlds. Alone, Chico can jump over obstacles and push wall switches. If he has a walnut, he can roll it over spikes, bounce it off of walls and bumpers, and more. Find a way to get the walnut through to the end of the level with you! Each world introduces unique new mechanics that will test your brain and your skills.

Chico and the Magic Orchards is made to evoke 8-bit handheld games. Catchy chiptune music, simple controls, and pixel-grid filters let you feel like you’re playing a “lost classic”! Play the game in fixed 4-color mode, automatic palette mode with a special 4-color palette for each area, or the new Full Color mode!

Even after the end credits roll, that’s not the end of Chico’s adventure! Continue your game after beating it to start playing the new post-game campaign A Hive Divided! Rescue trapped bees across two new giant levels, and defeat the Queen Bee. Power up your walnut with fire, water, and honey for a whole new spin on solving puzzles and exploring areas!
