31st March 2020, Salzburg, Austria - Austrian developer Salt Castle Studio are proud to announce that their madcap multiplayer party game Chapeau is launching today on Nintendo Switch and PC.


Watch the new launch trailer here. 


In Chapeau, the spirit of local co-op is alive, and it’s haunting hilarious headwear! Players can go head-to-head with their friends in frantic Versus mode or try working together in cap-tivating local multiplayer modes. They can even fly solo in Challenge mode to unlock new hats and maps!


Players must bounce, float and zoom through the air and land on people’s heads to score points. Use jetpacks, dogs, shields...anything you can do to get a-Head of the competition, and master the playstyle of each headpiece! 

  • Play on the couch with up to 4 players in local split screen

  • Play in Versus to take down friends, or Co-op to team up and hat together! 

  • Find the perfect fit with different hats to match both your style and your playstyle

  • Use items like jetpacks, dogs or even comets to sabotage your opponents and stay a step ahead in the ever-changing dynamic play fields

  • Compete in the modes The Floor is Lava, Color Craze, and Where is Whilhelm 

  • Test your skills in Challenge Mode to unlock a host of new hats & maps! 

  • Unlock and collect all the funny hats and skins

  • Steam exclusive feature: Play online against your friends via Steam Remote Play (they don’t even need to own the game!)

You can find more info and assets about the game in the press kit.
