Physics-based action game Fight Crab is dropping on Nintendo Switch. Publisher Mastiff has announced that Fight Crab will be coming to the Switch through the eShop on 15 September 2020.
Fight Crab is a physics-based action game where players take on the role of gigantic crabs. It has a heavy emphasis on its physics engine, with all the usable weapons and attacks are heavily reliant on weight and momentum. The goal of the game is to turn opponents on to the shells on their back.
For the unversed, it’s crabs and other crustaceans battling with a variety of deadly weapons in 3D arenas. Katanas, fans, lightsabers, chains, rockets, and tanks are all on the table when it comes to crab fighting. You gotta be ready for anything, you see. The victor is whoever flips their opponent onto their shell first. Beyond that, there don’t seem to be many rules.
The final game will feature 23 varieties of playable crabs, 48 different weapons, and a host of different special skills. You can recruit other crabs, customize your crab, and build the greatest crab fighter to ever live. The trailer, embedded below, is entirely crab fighting. No time for backstory, you fools! There’s crabs to fight! If you absolutely must play this on Switch, know that the motion controls take full advantage of the crab’s inherent fighting powers. For those of us who cannot wait even one second more, the PC version is on Steam in less than a week.
Alongside the Switch, Fight Crab is also coming to PC and PlayStation 4.
