Happy launch day, Ooblets! The cozy farming sim with dance battles is finally here on Nintendo Switch. To get players up to speed on what awaits, a new launch trailer shows off what you can do, items to collect, places to visit, and more.


New friends are plentiful in Ooblets! Spend your days renovating your farm, raising weird little pals, participating in dance-offs, designing your house, and helping the mayor save Badgetown!


  • Customize your character’s style with a variety of unique outfits and accessories
  • Grow otherworldly crops on your farm, craft treats, and sell them in town
  • Build your own team of ooblets to participate in card-based dance battles, level up, and unlock new moves
  • Daily challenges, dance tournaments, townsfolk quests, and badges will keep you very busy
  • Give gifts and make friends with the kinda-odd residents of Badgetown
  • Start with a rundown shack and turn it into a beautiful home with tons of decor and furniture options
  • Run your own shop in town selling items you’ve crafted and collected
  • Play a plethora of pleasant minigames
  • Help the mayor save the town, and unlock the secrets of Oob along the way
  • Explore a bunch of regions, like the arcade-filled boardwalk in Port Forward, the spooky swamps of Nullwhere, and the frozen peaks of Tippytop
  • (and you can pet the ooblets)


For anyone getting it on Nintendo Switch, be aware that the Ooblets team has discovered a particular bug concerning the play-run shop. A fix is in the works, but for now, do the following in your save file until an update is released:

There’s an issue with the player-run shop (mid-game unlock) on Switch that we have a fix in cert for, but for the first few days after launch we’re asking Switch players to avoid that system. Thankfully it’s an easy system to avoid and doesn’t impact the progression of the game. So for now, if you’re on Switch (starting this Thursday), just don’t start the “Open your own shop!” quest. We’ll let everyone know when the patch is out and you can run the player shop safely again!


If you happen to come across any other bugs in your Ooblets adventure, feel free to see if it has been reported or not on the official Ooblets Discord.

You can get Ooblets digitally today on the Nintendo eShop. Its special launch day sale is still active, dropping it down to $19.99 (normally $29.99). For a physical copy, Fangamer is currently accepting pre-orders for its physical run of the game (priced at $34) and will not be shipping the game until sometime in Q4 2022.
