Unexpected anime gets Nintendo Switch game
Sometimes we’re just left scratching our heads at who anime get video game adaptations or not and this is definitely one of those times. Especially since a monumental company like Bandai Namco Entertainment is in the driver’s seat of development. Yet it looks like Pui Pui Molcar: Come on! Molcar party! comes to Nintendo Switch in Japanese and English.
Since many western anime fans won’t recognize it, Pui Pui Mulcar is the third best children’s anime of all time according to MyAnimeList. It’s made with animated stop-motion wool felt puppets and it’s more than adorable. The series is so popular that it inspired a theatrical release – Tobidase! Narase! Pui Pui Molcar. It won’t be the franchise’s first game either, with the mobile title Pui Pui Molcar. Parking Mogu Mogu already released in July 2021.
Seriously, look how cute these guinea pig cars are!
Here’s how Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game:
“The universally popular PUI PUI MOLCAR is finally coming to Nintendo Switch ™!
Welcome to a whole new town, Moltown! Only you and the Molcars can turn this barren town into a bustling urban center. And with that… let’s party!
Play alone or with friends, the vast world of Molcars awaits!
Pui Pui Molcar: Come on! Molcar party! will be released on December 16, 2021.
