Adelaide-based indie developer Juicy Cupcake has revealed that its upcoming "butt 'em up" game Brief Battles will be heading to Nintendo Switch in 2019.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign and financial backing from Epic Games, Brief Battles is gearing up to bring "goofy underwear-fueled party game action" to consoles. Players will be grabbing their luckiest pair of underpants before heading into battle to squish their opponents; you'll need to scramble around the playing field to grab super-powered underpants, hoping to gain an underwear-fueled edge over your friends. Just a typical Saturday night, then.

Obtainable abilities include 'Toxic Tighty-Whities', 'Buns of Steel', and 'Flaming Hot Pants', allowing players to leap and jiggle their way through 50 treacherous 2.5D arenas. Locales like the Dusty Desert and Crystal Caverns are packed with distinctive hazards including ice-slicked floors, unstoppable creatures, and tricky platforms.

You can play with up to three friends and choose from a variety of modes including Classic Battle, Hold The Gold, and Underpants Collector. Solo players needn't worry, though, as solo challenges are also offered with plenty of rewards to unlock. Andrew Freeth, co-founder of Juicy Cupcake, has said the following:

“Brief Battles is a party game for competitive gamers, newcomers to the genre and anyone in between, with accessibility options opening up possibilities for all ages. Bringing Brief Battles to more couches and consoles at launch, puts a heap of game modes, challenges and arenas in front of everyone ready to embrace the power of the butt.”

The game is scheduled to launch on PS4, PC and Xbox One in Q2 2019, with the Switch version coming sometime after.
