Snipperclips Makes U.S. Nintendo Switch Launch

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. If you’re unsure if you want to spend the $19.99 on the digital release, you’ll be able to download and play a free demo first to see if you like it.


One of the most pleasant surprises coming out of the Nintendo Switch announcement was Snipperclips – Cut it out, together!, a cooperative puzzle game that encourages players to communicate and think creatively to overcome various brain-teasing challenges. Since its debut, the game has generated positive word-of-mouth from both fans and critics alike.

Well … the wait for the game will not be long at all, as Snipperclips – Cut it out, together! will be a launch game for the Nintendo Switch system on March 3. Available exclusively in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch for $19.99, the charming game features three main game modes. Grab a friend or go it alone in World mode, or invite some more friends who can make the cut and play Party mode or the fast-paced Blitz mode with two to four players*.

A free demo for the game can also be downloaded from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch on March 3.
