New gameplay modes, a European hardware bundle, and global release dates have been released for Snipperclips, the colourful puzzler coming to Nintendo Switch.

While many of the folks who have attended a pre-launch Nintendo Switch event will have gone with thoughts of Zelda and Splatoon, many have come out with memories of Snipperclips - Cut it out, together!, a funny and charming puzzle game coming to Nintendo eShop.

Nintendo has confirmed that Snipperclips will launch on Nintendo eShop on 3 March - the day Nintendo Switch is released into the wild - and a free demo will also be available in Europe and North America on the same day.

Also launching in the UK on 10 March is a special bundle featuring a neon red Joy-Con L and a neon blue Joy-Con R alongside a download code for Snipperclips, allowing players who buy the Nintendo Switch with neon Joy-Cons to neatly complement their existing pair and get the game at the same time.

Players can take part in three different modes:

  • WORLD (1 to 2 players, cooperative)
  • PARTY (2 to 4 players, cooperative)
  • BLITZ (2 to 4 players, competitive)

Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! is developed by London-based SFB Games and launches worldwide on 3 March.


Players can also snap up a set of coloured Joy-Con and a download code for this multiplayer puzzle hit in a special limited bundle from 10th March

24th February, 2017 – When it comes to solving puzzles, it’s often said that two heads are better than one, and families and friends of all ages can put that to the test by giving Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! a go when it launches on Nintendo eShop for the brand new Nintendo Switch console on 3rd March 2017. A special limited bundle containing two additional Joy-Con controllers and a download code for the game will also become available at retail from 10th March.

Snipperclips arrives as a launch title for Nintendo Switch, the brand new console by Nintendo that transforms to suit players’ situation, allowing them to enjoy their games anytime, anywhere, with anyone.

A breakout hit at Nintendo Switch hands-on events around the world, Snipperclips is a charming puzzle game that encourages players to communicate, cooperate and think creatively in order to overcome the various brain-teasing challenges on offer. When playing together, each player will hold their Joy-Con horizontally and cut each other’s paper characters, Snip and Clip, into new shapes to solve all sorts of puzzling situations. Developed by London-based indie developer SFB Games in partnership with Nintendo, it requires up to four players to work together – or compete against each other – across three main game modes: think creatively to puzzle your way through a WORLD of fun (1-2 players, cooperative), invite more players to join and get a PARTY started (2-4 players, cooperative), or go up against each other in a frenetic, fast-paced BLITZ match (2-4 players, competitive).

Those looking to share the joy of puzzle-solving with additional friends or family members can check out the special limited Joy-Con bundle coming to retail on 10th March, which contains a set of two coloured Joy-Con (neon red/neon blue), along with a download code for Snipperclips. Players will surely soon discover that not just two, but three, or even four heads can be better than one!

Additionally, Nintendo Switch owners will be able to try out the game free of charge, as a downloadable demo version will be available on Nintendo eShop from 3rd March.

How will your powers of cooperation and puzzle-solving shape up? Find out on 3rd March, when Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! launches on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch for £17.99 / €19.99. A special limited bundle containing a pair of Joy-Con controllers and a download code for the game will be available from 10th March.
