Microids and Ocellus Studio have unveiled Marsupilami: Hoobadventure, a new 2.5D platformer slated for release on Switch on November 16. The titular Marsupilami characters are based on animals from a comic book series by Andre Franquin. Read on for a PR excerpt and a bit more information about Marsupilami: Hoobadventure.
Punch, Twister, and Hope are three Marsupilamis living a peaceful life in Palombia. Their lives are about to take a drastic turn when they accidentally open a sarcophagus whilst playing with debris on a beach, releasing a mysterious ghost cursing all the animals! Thankfully, our three Marsupilamis are immune to the curse and decide to set out on an adventure and find the ghost and reverse the curse.
Inspired by the comic book Marsupilami from Franquin, this 2.5D platformer will take you on a colorful journey through the Palombian jungle, a coastal city and even an abandoned temple. Jump, punch, dash and swing with your tail like only Marsupilamis do!
This colorful game is geared toward a younger audience, but the developers state that more experienced gamers can enjoy a time attack mode and a series of hidden collectibles.
Currently, Microids is planning to offer Marsupilami: Hoobadventure in both digital and physical editions at launch. This includes a physical “Tropical Edition” that features goodies such as sticker sheets and a door hanger.
At the moment, the game is still several months away from release, so it may be a while before we know more about how it plays and what it’s all about. In the meantime, are you interested from what we know so far?
