Exploding Kittens

Exploding Kittens, a multiplayer card game, saw massive popularity on Kickstarter several years ago. It generated nearly $9 million, making it one of the most funded projects on the crowdfunding platform.

That same game has now found its way to Switch. There was no prior announcement from the team regarding a release on Nintendo’s console, but Exploding Kittens is live on the eShop right now. It comes with the Streaking Kittens, Party Pack, and Betrayal Pack expansions as well as exclusive cards and illustrations by The Oatmeal.

Here’s a proper overview of the game:

Exploding Kittens is a highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian roulette, the most backed game in Kickstarter history, and now on your Nintendo Switch!

Exploding Kittens is a multiplayer card game where players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten and explodes!

Play your cards to try to avoid, move, or defuse the Exploding Kitten. If you don’t explode, you win! Congratulations, you are full of greatness.

Play with friends in the same room or online, or play with strangers in online play. Not into other people? Play single player against kitty-bot opponents!

This version of the game includes the Streaking Kittens, Party Pack, and Betrayal Pack expansions, exclusive cards, and hilarious illustrations by The Oatmeal.

With millions of games sold and downloaded, Exploding Kittens is the perfect card game for players of all ages who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.

Pricing is set at  $9.99 on the Switch eShop.
