Conan Chop Chop was announced on April 1st as an April Fools Day joke. But the fan reaction was very strong, so Funcom is making it into a real game.
The game was perceived to be an April Fools’ Day joke, but today we set the record straight: The roguelike hack and slash game Conan Chop Chop is very real indeed. So real that it’s going to release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on September 3rd 2019!
“Keeping this a secret has been a hardship,” admits Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “The feedback we got from fans when we released the April Fools’ Day trailer was amazing and remarkably unanimous, and so I have been itching to give them the good news ever since.”
“But don’t be fooled by the game’s humoristic and quirky looks. There is a lot of hard work being put into this, and the game should thrill roguelike fans and hack & slash fans alike,” says Casais.
The game will support up to 4 players couch co-op and is set in Hyboria, the world created by fantasy author Robert E. Howard more than 80 years ago.
