Switch Crayon 01

With no warning whatsoever, the Switch has today been treated to its first Crayon Shinchan game in the form of Crayon Shinchan: The Storm Called! Flaming Kasukabe Runner!!. Another snappy title, then.

Available as we speak on the North American eShop, the game was previously released on iOS and Android devices. It's a jump-action game featuring the five-year-old Shinnosuke "Shin" Nohara, star of the Japanese manga series the game is based on, and it looks as bright and bonkers as ever.

We have some screenshots and an official description for you below:

Everyone's favorite five-year-old, Shinnosuke, makes a Fierce Dash to collect sweets and Golden Balls. Get lots of different costumes using Golden Balls, obtained by proceeding from one stage to another and completing special missions! Enjoy Shinchan and his friends wearing a variety of cosplay clothes, well-known to people familiar with anime and movies!

As noted above, you can go ahead and grab this one as we speak for $9.99. The eShop listing says that this is a game that "anyone can easily play".
