In development from Australian studio Mighty Kingdom, Funcom is publishing the top-down, cutesy rogue-like inspired by the Conan the Barbarian saga, the company announced during the PC Gaming Show at this year’s E3 2019.
“Conan Chop Cop” will launch Sept. 3 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. For those currently checking out the slate of games at E3, a playable version of the game is available at the Funcom booth.
Featuring four-player couch co-op, in “Conan Chop Chop” players are tasked with thwarting the plans of the evil wizard Thoth-Amon, who plans to resurrect the even eviler wizard Xaltotun.
“Keeping this a secret has been a hardship,” said Funcom CEO Rui Casais in a prepared statement. “The feedback we got from fans when we released the April Fools’ Day trailer was amazing and remarkably unanimous, and so I have been itching to give them the good news ever since.”
“But don’t be fooled by the game’s humoristic and quirky looks. There is a lot of hard work being put into this, and the game should thrill roguelike fans and hack & slash fans alike,” says Casais.
Funcom went on to announce release dates for its upcoming slate of games, including “Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil” which is coming to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC on July 30; “Conan Unconquered” which is coming to PC on May 29; and “Moons of Madness” for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on Halloween 2019.
