Armor Games has announced that The Adventure Pals will be launching on Nintendo Switch on 3rd April.

The game is a side-scrolling, action-packed platformer about friendship and exploration, featuring RPG elements and two-player local drop-in/drop-out co-op. Players will team up with their (rather excellent-looking) giraffe, Sparkles, discovering 105 levels across five whimsical worlds. You'll be taking on unique quests and meeting characters such as zombie pirate cats, post-apocalyptic dinosaurs and hot dogs that "poop explosive mines".

To celebrate the release announcement, a video has been released showing the first gameplay footage from the Nintendo Switch version of the game, offering a quick look at two players beginning the adventure in local co-op mode. Make sure to give it a watch above if you want to see more about the game!

The Adventure Pals is scheduled to be available for $14.99 in North America, with European details to come.
