Developer Deadtoast and publisher Devolver Digital have revealed the release date for the upcoming slow-motion carnage that is My Friend Pedro. You'll be able to get your hands on it from 20th June.

To celebrate, a brand new trailer has been released (which you can watch above) and an early discount has been detailed for those eager to put in a pre-order. If you grab the game from the Nintendo eShop early, you'll be able to snag a 15% discount off the usual £17.99 / $19.99 price. Here's a quick description if you'd like to learn more:

My Friend Pedro is a violent ballet about friendship, imagination, and one man’s struggle to obliterate anyone in his path at the behest of a sentient banana. The strategic use of split aiming, slow motion, and the ol’ stylish window breach create one sensational action sequence after another in an explosive battle through the violent underworld.

On a slightly related note, we thought we'd give you a quick insight into the daily routine of working at Nintendo Life. Today, we received a lovingly crafted email from the Devolver Digital folks which simply said the following:

"Hello! If you would like to request a review code for My Friend Pedro, please write your platform preference onto a banana and send a picture to [email address]"

We're not shy here at NL, so off we popped into the office garden. Who said games journalism wasn't super professional?
