Happy Badger Studio announces SmuggleCraft to be released on Nintendo Switch this Friday, January 25th! SmuggleCraft originally launched in May of 2017 for PS4 and Steam. Yep...that was a long time ago.

In celebration of finally releasing on Switch, we're having a huge launch sale with big discounts across all platforms. The game, which normally retails for $9.99, will see the following discounts on launch day and continuing for one week:

70% off on Nintendo Switch

50% off on PS4

50% off on Steam

If you haven't played it (you probably haven't), SmuggleCraft is a stylized hovercraft racing game that includes local multiplayer, a custom track builder, and a quest based story-driven campaign. The race tracks are all randomly generated from beautiful alien terrain, so racing has more to do with quick reflexes than memorization.

Fans of SmuggleCraft have described it as "F-Zero meets Podracer". It's an aesthetically pleasing thrill ride that's easy to learn but offers plenty of additional challenge for advanced players. Fans of future-racers will find plenty to keep them busy, with customizable crafts, a track editor, and rogue-lite mode.
