On April 28, Bugsnax, the Young Horses console exclusive for PlayStation, will be released on Switch and Xbox consoles.
Bugsnax and its planned DLC, The Isle of Bigsnax, which we believe is building up to be a wonderful time following a recent preview, will hit Xbox Game Pass the same day it releases on Xbox and Switch, previously published in 2020 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC through the Epic Games Store. If you don’t have Xbox Game Pass or want to play Bugsnax on Switch, you can get it for $24.99 on opening day with a 20% discount. In addition, the Isle of Bigsnax DLC has introduced extra awards and accomplishments to the game across all platforms.
Bugsnax, for those unfamiliar, is a mystery adventure game with Pokemon Snap-like aspects in which you capture unusual bugs that resemble appetizing delicacies in a number of ways. It has a fantastic voice cast, one of the most memorable theme melodies in gaming, and much more. “3 to 4 hours of fresh tale material with Yuri Lowenthal, Casey Mongillo, Debra Wilson, and Haviland Stillwell returning to voice their different grumpuses – plus more fascinating Bugsnax and secrets to unravel,” according to Young Horses.
Furthermore, according to Young Horses, new mail tasks have been introduced to the basic Bugsnax island, as well as new headwear to get and your own cabin to decorate and call home. To commemorate the occasion, iam8bit has announced the release of a “super-sized two-disc LP” vinyl including 25 songs from Seth Parker’s Bugsnax soundtrack.
The base Bugsnax campaign, according to Young Horses, takes about seven hours to complete. When you combine it with The Isle of Bigsnax, you’ll have roughly a dozen hours of Bugsnax material to enjoy on Switch and Xbox systems when they launch on April 28.
