Bandai Namco and Outright Games have revealed that Ice Age: Scrat’s Nutty Adventure will be haphazardly scrambling onto a Switch near you on 18th October.

The game sees movie franchise favourite Scrat, the painfully clumsy squirrel, embarking on a quest through classic Ice Age locations to recover his cherished acorn. You'll need to help him collect the legendary Crystal Nuts (ahem) to do just that, all while facing off against prehistoric creatures and exploring "adventure-packed" locations.

Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games, has shared the following:

“This is an exciting time for us as we look to expand on one of the biggest properties in kids’ entertainment in a way only video games can. Revealing to the world how fun Scrat’s first solo adventure game is, as well as announcing when you’ll be able to play the game itself, is something we hope will delight Ice Age fans of all ages.”

As noted above, the game will release in most territories on 18th October, although Australia and New Zealand will have to wait until 6th December.
