During the Nintendo Switch official reveal, gamers were able to catch a glimpse of a co-op puzzle game called "Snipperclips". However, during the event Nintendo reportedly mentioned that the game is scheduled to hopefully arrive within the Switch's launch week. It appears that the puzzle game's development encountered little to no issues as the game was recently announced to join the new consoles launch lineup.

The game will only be available as a Nintendo eShop download and won't have a physical copy released, according to sources. Players who are unsure about how to puzzle game works can view a demo video uploaded by the gaming firm. Players are required to solve different levels with different goals. Both players control a paper character each and they can cut their partners into certain shapes and sizes based on their own shapes, according to Game Rant.

"Snipperclips" features single player, co-op and a competitive mode. The game is developed by SFB Games, which previously worked on mobile games only. It seems Nintendo is allowing the developer to venture into console games through the Nintendo Switch. The game is now considered the 12th launch game for the upcoming hybrid console. It will be available on the eShop that same day as the console hits retailers.

Players who obviously want to try out the game in order to decide if it is worth their purchase can download a demo on the console launch day. The demo appears to be a great way for gamers to experience how it works, since its gameplay is bit hard to describe unless users get a hands-on test, says Polygon.

On the Nintendo Switch official launch date, players can download "Snipperclips" for $19.99 from the Nintendo eShop. The game's affordable price makes it an interesting launch title for users who love co-op puzzle games. It seems like the company is doing its best to make the console's launch less barren that their initial announcement.
