We've known for a little while that a port of The Snack World - a Japan-only RPG that's evolved into a multimedia hit brand with its own film and a line of super popular toys - will be getting a Nintendo Switch port, but now we finally have a date. Developer Level 5 has confirmed the game - called The Snack World Trejarers Gold - will release on 12th April, 2018.

The port marks Level 5's first game on Nintendo's latest hardware, and will include a whole host of improvements, including tweaked graphics, an improved battle system and all the DLC released for the 3DS version. It'll set you back a good ¥6,458, should you be a Nintendo Life reader based in Japan. No word on a western release just yet, but we hope Level 5 gets round to one because The Snack World is a hit just waiting to happen in the West.
