Another Crab’s Treasure is coming to Nintendo Switch

Another Crab's Treasure

The upcoming “Shellslike” game Another Crab’s Treasure is coming to the Nintendo Switch. The game was announced during the recent Indie World Showcase on May 11th.

In Another Crab’s Treasure players will take on the role of Kril the hermit crab. In Kril’s world, trash and treasure flow in equal measure from the surface of the ocean to fuel a world of violence and decadence on the sea floor.

Kril’s gear is made of the selfsame trash littering the ocean, whether that means striking foes with a plastic fork, or taking shelter in a coffee mug used as a shell. You can find the announcement trailer here.

As Kril the hermit crab, you’ll need to wear the trash around you as shells to withstand attacks from enemies many times your size. Embark on an epic treasure hunt to buy back your repossessed shell, and discover the dark secrets behind the polluted ocean.

In this undersea society, trash is not only a way of life, but a valuable resource, used for everything from fashion to firearms. But with the presence of trash comes a mysterious infection known as the Gunk, which could spell doom for the entire ocean.

As Kril explores the ocean, he’ll gain a variety of Umami Techniques—powerful attacks learned from the denizens of the seas. Punch your enemies with the overwhelming might of a Mantis Shrimp, ensnare them with the horrifying Bobbit Worm, and much more.

The ocean goes deeper than one can imagine. Fight your way through kelp forests, coral reefs, sand castle cities, and even the unfathomable darkness of the deep-sea trenches, all in the name of getting back your prized shell.

Designed to be an approachable experience for newer soulslike players as well as provide a challenge for hardcore fans, Another Crab’s Treasure offers something for any level of skill or time commitment. Assist options are provided for those seeking a less frustrating experience, and gluttons for punishment can use those same options to make the game even harder.

Another Crab’s Treasure is the second game from developer Aggro Crab who developed the “office roguelike” Going Under. More recently Aggro Crab was noted as defying publisher Team17’s NFT ambitions as a developer who has worked with them in the past.
