Snipperclips Makes Japanese Nintendo Switch Launch

[Updated 2/24/17 – Snipperclips Makes U.S. Launch As Well!]:

We heard late last night that Snipperclips was going to make the Japanese Nintendo Switch launch, but we weren’t sure if it would be the same in the United States. This morning Nintendo has confirmed that it will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop on March 3 for us as well, which is fantastic news!

For those unaware, Snipperclips is an original game where players must figure out the puzzle to proceed to the next level. These different rooms have different objectives and often require critical thinking to figure out the solution. Some might be as simple as getting a basketball into the basket. Others might require you to scoop out some liquid and place it in a container.

The characters you control are made out of paper, and can be rotated and moved in all sorts of directions. By placing one character over another you can snip the other player based on the shape of your character. By creating unique shapes, you will then be able to use your characters to manipulate objects in the room to solve the various challenges. The game supports up to four players and even has a mode for competitive activities.

For more information, check out our preview. Snipperclips will release on March 3 exclusively on the Nintendo eShop.


[Original Story]:

Nintendo announced today that Snipperclips is launching alongside the Switch in Japan next Friday, March 3. This creative game allows for up to four players to work together to solve various puzzles. The official site is now open and has tons of new screens and videos.



Snipperclips has a nebulous March 2017 date in North America. Maybe we’ll get lucky and get it at launch as well. We should find out more very soon! For more information, be sure to swing by our preview.
