Bread & Fred

Apogee Entertainment and SandCastles Studio are putting Bread & Fred on Switch, the two sides announced today. It’s planned to launch on May 23, 2024.

Bread & Fred is a co-op platformer in which two penguins attempt to reach the top of a snow mountain. You can learn more about it in the following overview:

Bundle up for the tandem-trek of a lifetime as Bread and Fred, pint-sized penguin pals, embark on a journey to the top of the summit. Intrepid climbers land heart-pounding jumps, clear sprawling gaps, and maneuver slippery platforms, all while attached at the hip to a (hopefully) trusty partner. Communicate via in-game emojis to count down every jump.

Find the perfect penguin partner and clear record-setting runs together in Speedrun Mode. Interested in a single-player solo climb? Swap out a penguin pal for Jeff the Rock to sling and jump-throw across the slippery slopes.

Clamber to the jams across all genres, from smooth jazz to hip-hop, with the “Super Duper Ultra Redux” mixtape, featuring an hour of toe-tapping, wing-flapping tracks from legendary gaming composers like Grant Kirkhope (GoldenEye, Donkey Kong 64), Chipper Hammond (composer, Turbo Overkill), and Tim Stoney (Assassin’s Creed: Origins). Find the perfect song for every climb with the Jukebox inside Bread and Fred’s house, easily accessible via the pause menu.

Scott Miller, CCO and Founder of Apogee Entertainment, said today: “Bread & Fred was created as a collaborative experience, and the Nintendo Switch is a perfect complement for friends and family to play together at home and on the go. With the addition of the timed trials, there’s even more reason to gather friends to create memorable, binding moments.”

A trailer for Bread & Fred is included below.
