Exploding Kittens, the massively successful Kickstarter card game, is now available on the Nintendo Switch. Exploding Kittens is a multiplayer card game where players draw cards and juggle their hand in an effort to make sure they don’t explode. The game will have local and online multiplayer, as well as single-player against bots.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game includes the Streaking Kittens, Party Pack, and Betrayal Pack expansions.

Exploding Kittens is illustrated by online content creator The Oatmeal. In our 2015 review, editor Charlie Hall wrote: “Attacks unleash bizarre, Oatmeal-themed horrors such as the bear-o-dactyl, the catterwocky, and the thousand-year back hair. If you’re not familiar with The Oatmeal and his body of work, you’re going to be completely lost.”

There are other card games under the Exploding Kittens brand, including Bears vs. Babies, Throw Throw Burrito, and You’ve Got Crabs. Exploding Kittens is also available on iOS and Android.
