The Amazing American Circus launching on Switch in May
Posted on February 4, 2021 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Following its announcement late last year, The Amazing American Circus has received a final release date. Klabater, in partnership with Juggler Games, have set a May 20 release date for the single-player circus empire-building game.
Here’s the latest on The Amazing American Circus, including a new trailer:
The Amazing American Circus relives the great days of 19th-century American circuses where players can build their circus empire, manage it and perform however they choose. It explores the behind-the-scenes organization of circuses, the bizarre folklore, brutal crimes, and social inequality of 19th century American entertainment. This unique experience delivers the story of a struggle between a newcomer and an industry giant – P.T. Barnum. Like Slay the Spire, The Amazing American Circus brings a fresh approach to the deck-building genre. Players can use collectible cards to perform incredible circus stunts and wow their audiences. The game has a non-brutal approach to reliving the performances of American circuses.
