April Fool's Joke Turned Game, Conan Chop Chop, Delayed Again
That extra chop has to be perfect.
Multiplayer hack-and-slash roguelite Conan Chop Chop has suffered yet another delay. Instead of launching on February 25, it's now expected to arrive sometime in "Q2 2020" (between April 1 and June 30) on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, developer Mighty Kingdom and publisher Funcom announced in a press release.
Conan Chop Chop was initially teased as an April Fools' day joke during last year's E3 before getting an official announcement trailer. The game is a crudely-drawn rendition of Conan the Barbarian, featuring stick figures instead of a more traditional art style. It's a solo- and multiplayer romp that seems to share a lot in common with other hack-and-slash titles like Castle Crashers or Streets of Red: Devil's Dare Deluxe.
Mighty Kingdom said the extra development time will allow the studio to optimize Conan Chop Chop for online multiplayer, as well as add some finishing touches to polish the overall experience. "It's basically all about getting that final Chop in place," studio head Philip Mayes said. "This isn't merely a one-chop game. This is Conan Chop Chop, and that necessitates extra attention to detail."
