Cannibal Cuisine – Ver. ??? (Curse of the Scarab King Expansion)

  • Release date: January 25th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:

No patch notes available. This update brings the following to the game:

  • 5 levels and one Challenge level
    • The Curse of the Scarab King expansion adds 5 new levels and a new challenge level where you must face the Scarab King himself.
  • Mummies!
    • Dig into the sand of an ancient desert and chop up some mummies that wander around.
  • Ancient Egyptian inspired visuals
  • New cosmetic items
    • And because you want to look like the coolest cannibal ever, the new expansion also features new cosmetics, adding 8 new items – perhaps a turban or fez appeals to your sense of style? Or a golden-hilted scimitar will be your weapon of choice? You can combine these with the main game items, so you can pair a classic chef’s hat with a new axe, or combo a Roman-style plumed helmet with a frying pan.
  • Collect gems from scarabs to disable traps
    • So apart from chopping up mummies, you now have to shut down the deadly green beams by hunting a scarab, stealing their gem, and plugging it into the gem socket.
  • Don’t dump your friends in the drink with switchable bridges
    • New game mechanics are added too, including switch-controlled bridges, so it’s best to really try and be a team with your fellow cannibal friends. You wouldn’t want them ending up dead… right?
  • Additional notes: none.
