Nintendo Switch is home to many funky little gems, and it looks set to take another pixelated retro style title under its wing in the form of King of the Hat.

King of the Hat is a colorful endeavor which doesn’t take itself seriously. Tiny cute characters bob merrily while wearing an assortment of hats which contain their souls. They must hold onto order their headwear rather tightly to avoid death. This all sounds simple enough, except for the fact that their hat is also their means of attack.

Throwing your hat at your opponent means risking your life in order to beat them. With everything on the line with each shot, King of the Hat looks to be a fun, fast-paced and chaotic little title. It features an array of increasingly unusual characters including a birthday boy simply named Birthday, an abominable snowman, a pirate, and even a frustrated washing machine all ready to throw their hat in the ring for this party game.

King of the Hat is due for release on Nintendo Switch early next year. Check out the game’s teaser trailer, below:
