Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl Gold

Hello, my deserted villagers! This week on NEP, we’re covering the big Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Direct. Oni Dino is reminded of Fyre Fest, while Galen can’t wait to share his place and play online with friends. We also introduce Snack World in our Adventure Log, followed by an impromptu talk about why misrepresentation of marginalized groups in video games is harmful. We ebb and flow between the serious and the absurd on NEP! Plus, we talk about an upcoming, killer JRPG that’s kind of going under the radar: Trials of Mana. Come hang out.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

Like other recent Level-5 IPs, Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold isn’t just limited to a game. Toys were made and an anime was created.

It doesn’t look like there are any extensive plans for the toys in the west, but an English dub of the anime is now available. Crunchyroll is streaming the show through its website in numerous countries. Those regions include North America, Central and South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, the Nordics, and other select European countries.

Nintendo has published a short launch trailer for Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold. Take a look at the video below.

On February 14, Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold will finally be released on Switch in the west. Have a look at some English gameplay below.

Unlike the Japanese release, the Western version of Snack World will not have support for the NFC figures like the jara and snack toys. This is instead replaced by a fortune telling event that can be done by Sam Witch once per real-world day. Take a look at the video below to see how it works.

Today, Nintendo published a new “Let’s get looting!” trailer for Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold. Take a look at the video below.

After a very long wait, Level-5’s dungeon crawling RPG Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold is coming west. Nintendo announced today that it will publish the game on Switch on February 14, 2020. That news applies to both North America and Europe.

Here’s the full announcement:

Level-5’s Snack World franchise has so far been exclusive to Japan. However, we’ve known for a while now that the company plans to release it in the West as well. Back in April, Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold received an age rating in Australia; this is likely the English title of The Snack World: Trejarers Gold, which came out in Japan for Nintendo Switch in 2018. Then, in May, Level-5 officially confirmed that they would bring the Snack World franchise to the West in 2020. 

Today, Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl – Gold received another age rating, this time by the ESRB for the North American market. The game received a Teen rating for “Fantasy Violence, Mild Language and Suggestive Themes”. At this point, all that’s left is an official announcement from Level-5.

Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl Gold was classified in Australia today. That should be the English name for The Snack World: Trejarers Gold, which launched for Switch in Japan last April. Level-5 is naturally attached to the rating.

There was first talk about Snack World heading west as early as October 2017. However, Level-5 has yet to make any official announcements. The new rating in Australia suggests that we’re coming closer to news being shared soon. If we hear anything from Level-5, we’ll be sure to let you know.
