Nitrome has confirmed that its upcoming puzzle-platformer Bomb Chicken will be hatching on the Switch eShop on 12th July.

Bomb Chicken features the gameplay we've all been waiting for: taking on a fast-paced adventure that combines action, puzzles, and arcade gameplay as a bomb-laying chicken. You'll need to lay bombs to escape tricky situations and create platforms, as well as to remove obstacles, create fires, and discover secret areas - and it all looks very fun indeed.

The release date confirmation came from Nitrome's official Twitter account.

+ Lay stacks of explosives to reach impossibly high places.
