Conan Chop Chop

Funcom have announced a new game for the Nintendo Switch: Conan Chop Chop, a roguelike hack and slash game that was initially presented as an April’s Fools but is in fact pretty real! It’s so real, it will even be released on September 3rd in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:

Funcom and the Australian developers at Mighty Kingdom are proud to announce that Conan Chop Chop will be the most realistic stick figure game ever to feature Conan the Barbarian! The game will support up to 4 players couch co-op and is set in Hyboria, the world created by fantasy author Robert E. Howard more than 80 years ago. You will be tasked with thwarting the plans of the evil wizard Thoth-Amon, who plans to resurrect the even eviler wizard Xaltotun. If he succeeds, he will condemn the world to an eternity of darkness and enslavement. Only you can stop him, but in order to do so you must use all your cunning. All your guile. You must summon all your courage and swordsmanship. You must … Chop Chop!

  • 1-4 players: Conan Chop Chop supports couch co-op.
  • Diverse cast to suit your playstyle: Play as Conan, Pallantides, Valeria or Bêlit, all known heroes in the Conan universe.
  • Diverse word: Explore the desert of Koth, the enchanted Darkwood, the burning slopes of Hyperboria and the icy world of Vanaheim, each with their own deadly dungeon.
  • Lots of loot: Use everything from a broom to a bastard sword to hack your foes to bits.
  • Astonishing combos: CCC will feature not only the ability to swing left and right, you will also learn even flashier fighting moves as you progress.
  • Ruthless bosses: Now is finally your chance to go up against a giant gorilla in a cape! But beware killer boss moves, such as Lava Reflux, Tail Whip and Loogie Glob.
  • Infinite replayability: Randomly generated maps, tons of weapons and abilities ensure that every game will be a whole new experience. The game is superdeadly, but you will get to unlock new weapons for your next playthrough.
