A week later, on March 10, a bundle of the game containing a pair of additional Joy-Cons will arrive at retail. The pack contains a download code for Snipperclips in addition to the Neon Red and Blue Joy-Cons.

Lastly, Nintendo announced a playable demo of Snipperclips will launch on the eShop on March 3, allowing players to try the game out for free.

Snipperclips is the latest game to join the Switch's launch lineup, which also includes: Skylanders Imaginators, 1-2-Switch, Just Dance 2017, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I Am Setsuna, Human Resource Machine, Little Inferno, World of Goo, Shovel Knight, Fast RMX, and Super Bomberman R. Another title, The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, was also meant to launch on March 3 for the system, but that was recently delayed.
