Bugsnax, which originally debuted on PS4, PS5, and PC in November 2020, has been announced for Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One, including a Game Pass release for console, PC, and cloud.

Developer Young Horses has announced Bugsnax will arrive on these new platforms April 28, which will also mark the release of the anticipated Isle of Bigsnax expansion, both on all of these platforms as well as via a free update for PC and PlayStation players. The expansion will come with additional trophies on PlayStation platforms, as well as additional achievements to the base list on Xbox.

For new players, Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game that sees you explore a colorful island full of the titular Bugsnax, helping the handful of grumpuses living on the island with both their personal stories as well as uncovering the larger secrets of what’s happen to the mysteriously disappeared explorer Elizabert Megafig, who invited you to Snaktooth Island in the first place.

The Isle of Bigsnax expansion will be accessible to new players after completing a particular grumpus’ storyline, while players who have already beaten the base game can load a pre-ending save to hop into the experience. IGN recently went hands-on with the Isle of Bigsnax and found its potential as an exciting expansion to the world both mechanically and narratively exciting. Young Horses expects the expansion’s additional campaign to add three to four hours of story content, as well as new additional quests, collectibles, and a new home decorating addition on the main Snaktooth Island.

Additionally, Young Horses has confirmed a special collection vinyl of Bugsnax’s soundtrack by composer Seth Parker will be released via iam8bit.
