Get ready for the biggest cosmic comeback as Astro Bears is back and shinier than ever, with loads of improvements, new Bears, planets and play modes to pump up the party… again!

Jump and hover over Ribbons using a jetpack. Perform dashes to threaten your opponents. Be the last Bear standing!

Choose one of 4 Bears with different playstyles and battle between 2-4 players. Take a challenge in single player mode and beat your own record in Jetfish Hunting!

A new edition of the compulsively playable hit for Nintendo Switch will be touching down soon in the Nintendo eShop.

Astro Bears has been updated with a load of new features to amp up the fun, and, as a special thank you to fans, existing owners of the original Astro Bears Party will get the new game for free.

“When we originally released Astro Bears Party, we never envisioned that it would become such a phenomenon,” says Rafal Sankowski, CEO of SONKA. “The community embraced our core concept of a very simple, straightforward game that is tons of fun to play, and we are thrilled to reward our loyal fans with all this new Astro Bears content for free.”

Four new Astro Bears join the fun, each with its own unique playstyle and sound effects. The famous World War II bear Private Wojtek who helped soldiers carry ammunition in the Italian campaign even makes a special appearance. Party Mode has been revamped to feature a new Huge Planet, and players may now choose a finite ribbon and randomized mode settings for extra challenge. Jetfish Hunting can now be played with two and online leaderboards have been added. New gameplay color themes, music and gameplay improvements enrich the lively Astro Bears experience, and optional tutorial prompts make it easy for new players to join in the fun.

Competitive Mode is a new 1v1 tournament play option to support the growing Astro Bears esports community. In this Best of 5 competition, players select 3 different Astro Bears and selects one that best fits the randomized environment. Play continues in rounds to 10 points, at which point the next random environment appears. The winner is the player who wins with all three Astro Bears.

Astro Bears is expected to launch this spring for $6.99, with existing owners of Astro Bears Party receiving the new content for free.

Key Features:

  • 4 cute Astro Bears with different playstyles
  • Local multiplayer for 2-4 players
  • Jetfish Hunting single player mode
  • Beautiful high quality 3D graphics
  • HD Rumble support

Astro Bears Party is currently available on Nintendo Switch as digital download through eShop.
