Tuesday, August 22 nd 2017, Manchester, UK . - Merge Games Ltd., a privately-owned video game publisher and distributor, and Prospect Games are delighted to announce the very first public outings of Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure on the Nintendo Switch.

Visitors to Gamescom (Cologne, Germany 23-26 August) and PAX West (Seattle, USA 1-4 September) will be able to jump on the Nintendo Switch and play the explosive 3D adventure, Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure.  

As a living cardboard box, Newbie can explore glorious 3D worlds filled with scenic vistas, mountains, islands and the like. Along the way he’ll meet new friends, discover a plethora of collectables and uncover oodles of super-secrets.

In addition to a single-player adventure mode, Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure also offers classic split-screen action. Up to four friends can gather together and challenge each other in madcap speed races and last-man-standing battles. Endless cardboard carnage awaits as players create their own customisable Tournaments, playing on dedicated multiplayer maps.

Visitors to Gamescom should head for the Nintendo booth in Hall 9 while attendees at PAX West need to head to booth #6916 on the sixth floor of the convention centre.

Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure is due for release in Q4 2017 for Nintendo Switch.
