Save Your Nuts
Starting today, Save Your Nuts is available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop, for £11.99 / $14.99. A demo version will be released on April 16th (same day as the game itself), and will offer the following:
- a tutorial teaching newcomers how to play solo with bots or with a group of up to eight local frenemies
- two of the game’s exciting arenas, the park and the garden
- Capture the Nuts mode, where an acorn is dropped and critters fight to nipple on it
Here’s some more details for the game:
The full release of Save Your Nuts will see up to eight players compete locally, online or against challenging AI opponents across three modes and 10 different arenas ranging from soccer fields, basketball courts, waterfalls and ice lakes to castles, train stations, ships and outer space. Apart from Capture the Nuts, the game will include Thieves, a war to steal multiple enemy’s nuts while protecting your own team’s, and Battle, a fight to determine who will be the last animal to keep their nuts intact. Maps will be filled with hazards and power-ups that can change the tide of battle faster than fans can crack open a nut.
Don’t let Save Your Nuts’ cute cast fool you: the game will be accessible and easy to enjoy, but hard to master. Challenging AI and shifting environments will ensure that no real-life get-together is ever boring. Fans will even be able to take the party online via Steam’s Remote Play Together feature, which will allow up to seven friends who don’t own the game to join the fun from their own abode. That’s right: everyone you know could become a fellow nut-buster simply by selecting the Remote Play Together option on your friend list.
Solo players won’t be left out, as each of Save Your Nuts’ three unique modes will be endlessly replayable. That’s not to mention that there’ll be a ton of outfits to dress up your squirrels, dogs, racoons, beavers and more.
