New edition of Astro Bears due out this spring

It was announced over a year ago that a big update was in the works for Astro Bears Party. SONKA now says it will be ready sometime this spring, and a new edition of the game will be released as simply “Astro Bears”.
Here’s an overview of what’s new:
Four new Astro Bears join the fun, each with its own unique playstyle and sound effects. The famous World War II bear Private Wojtek who helped soldiers carry ammunition in the Italian campaign even makes a special appearance. Party Mode has been revamped to feature a new Huge Planet, and players may now choose a finite ribbon and randomized mode settings for extra challenge. Jetfish Hunting can now be played with two and online leaderboards have been added. New gameplay color themes, music and gameplay improvements enrich the lively Astro Bears experience, and optional tutorial prompts make it easy for new players to join in the fun.
Competitive Mode is a new 1v1 tournament play option to support the growing Astro Bears esports community. In this Best of 5 competition, players select 3 different Astro Bears and selects one that best fits the randomized environment. Play continues in rounds to 10 points, at which point the next random environment appears. The winner is the player who wins with all three Astro Bears.
Astro Bears launches on Switch this spring. It’ll cost $6.99, but existing owners of Astro Bears Party will be able to get the new content for free.
