Bubsy: Paws on Fire!

The Switch version of Bubsy: Paws on Fire! will launch both physically and digitally on August 29, publisher Accolade and developer Choice Provisions announced.

The runner game, developed by the studio behind the Bit.Trip series, first launched for PlayStation 4 and PC in May. The Switch version was also originally planned for release in May, but was delayed the week before release.

Here is an overview of the game, via Accolade:
