Plenty of publishers are recognising the merits of bringing download games to the Switch eShop, with a number of studios enjoying plenty of success on the store. Armor Games Studios is getting in on the act, confirming that it's bringing the Massive Monsters-developed title The Adventure Pals to the Switch in Spring 2018 alongside PC / Mac, PS4 and Xbox One releases.

A sidescrolling action game with optional local co-op, it looks rather bonkers - check out a trailer and press release details below.

The Adventure Pals is a side-scrolling action-adventure platformer about friendship and exploration, featuring RPG elements and two-player local drop-in/drop-out co-op. Leap, slash and blast your way through increasingly madcap levels filled with dangerous traps, weird enemies, ridiculous bosses and glorious treasure. Visit friendly towns, unlock fun costumes and fill your scrapbook with secret stickers on a journey with a bizarre but lovable cast and colorfully animated storytelling.

Hop on the back of your giraffe, Sparkles, and discover 105 levels across five whimsical worlds filled with unique quests and characters, including zombie pirate cats, post-apocalyptic dinosaurs and hot dogs that poop explosive mines. Help a whale regain confidence, take a side in the battle between toast and dinosaur, travel to a legendary sunken city, decide the fate of a pirate election and more, all while leveling up to gain new and more powerful abilities!

Is this going on your wishlist for next year?
