Developer and publisher Sonka announced that Astro Bears, the sequel to the compulsively playable hit for Nintendo Switch, will launch on the eShop on the 19th of July. The sleeper hit game is back and shinier than ever, with loads of improvements, new Bears, planets and play modes to pump up the party… again!
In Astro Bears, four new Astro Bears join the fun, each with its own unique playstyle, giving players eight total Bears to play with. Experience even more chaotic gameplay with infinite or finite Magical Beary Ribbons and planets ranging from small to huge. Jetfish Hunting can now be played with two in co-op mode, and global leaderboards have been added. The game will also feature new themes, music and gameplay improvements.
Competitive Mode is a new 1v1 tournament play option to support the growing Astro Bears esports community. In this Best of 5 format, players choose 3 different Astro Bears and select the one that best fits a randomized environment. Play continues in rounds to 10 points, at which point the next random environment appears. The winner is the player who wins with all three Astro Bears in this grizzly quest for victory.
Astro Bears will be priced at $6.99. Owners of Astro Bears Party will receive the new game for free.
