Level-5, the studio behind games like Yokai Watch and the Professor Layton series, has announced a new RPG for Nintendo Switch. Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold is coming on February 14, 2020 and will cost $50.
The game takes place in the delicious world of Tutti-Frutti, which is threatened by the machinations of the Sultan Vinegar, who intends to resurrect the Deodragon, Smorg Asbord. (Get it?) You play as the treasure hunters Chup and Mayonna in a roguelike adventure. Convenience stores provide supplies and gear upgrades, and you can use “snacks” to summon superpowered allies. You can also team up with other players for up to three other players.
Previously, Level-5 had created the Snack World game for the 3DS in Japan, and it received a Switch port in 2018. Fans have waited for a western release of the oddball RPG, and this is it.

The game is described as a parody of classic RPG tropes–with plenty of food puns, naturally. You can see more at its official site.
