Monday, October 22nd 2018, Manchester, UK. - Merge Games and Still Running are proud to announce the upcoming release of The Walking Vegetables - Radical! edition on Nintendo Switch.

 

A twin-stick shooter, The Walking Vegetables sees players battling mutated zombie fruit and veg. Armed initially with a simple pistol, players can upgrade their arsenal with a myriad of weapons and gadgets they uncover as they take on the lethal legumes.
