Snow Bros. is a classic platform game that was first released as an arcade game in 1990 by Toaplan, a Japanese development studio that was mainly famous for its shooting games. The critically acclaimed Snow Bros. was later released on multiple consoles and personal computers. Highly popular with gamers, Snow Bros. spawned an arcade sequel. Snow Bros. gained cult status as a sought-after retro game after being dormant since the 90s.
30 years later, it’s time for heroes Nick and Tom to return in a modern interpretation with the title Snow Bros. Special coming to Switch later in 2022. Snow Bros. Special inherited the cute design and feel of the original arcade version, but improved to make it even more fun. The game can be played by two players at the same time.
New to Snow Bros. Special is the “Monster Challenge” mode in which you play as the monsters. Each monster has its own special moves and controls that will change the way you play.
