Bread Machine Games has announced that its upcoming competitive party game Slam Land will be slam-dunking its way to Switch on 7th August.

Slam Land is a fast-paced, chaotic brawler where a bizarre blue giant instructs competitors to dunk one another into hoops for his amusement. Players must grapple, lunge, and dodge their way around the stages (and each other) as they try to slam their opponents into a variety of goals ranging from tree hollows to gaping maws.

These matches can be played either against the clock, with a goal of scoring the most points, or as a stock contest where players must outlive one another - not too dissimilar to Super Smash Bros. Other modes include 'Peanut Mode', where scores become more valuable the longer players hold on to the titular peanut, and a distinctive take on the classic basketball activity 'H.O.R.S.E.', where lettered NPCs spawn and players shoot them to fill out the word. 

The game is set to launch with an asking price of $7.99 / €7.99, available directly from the Nintendo Switch eShop on 7th August.
