Remember Happy Tree Friends back in the day? Those cute and fluffy cartoons that often ended in grotesque violence as the helpless cartoon animals harmed themselves in a variety of dumb ways? Well, imagine if you got to play a Fortnite inspired game in that vein and you'd have Super Animal Royale, which is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S via Xbox Game Preview on June 1.
In this new take on the battle royale formula, 64-players will engage in chaotic, top-down multiplayer action to be the last animal standing. Despite the furry nature, you or your squad will fight with an assortment of guns and other weapons in an abandoned safari park to become the top dog[s].
Not only that, but Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will also have free access to the Founder's Pack, which according to the Steam version, includes a variety of animal breeds and cosmetic items.
- Survival of the Fittest – Scavenge a variety of powerful weapons, armor and items to become the apex predator in intense 64-player online matches.
- The Superest World – Explore a massive, beautifully illustrated 2D island and discover its hidden lore, by chatting with its inhabitants and scouring its rich environments for clues.
- Different Stripes for Different Fights – Collect hundreds of animal breeds and customize them with thousands of cosmetic items, weapons, outfits, and even umbrellas!
- Evolving Events and Updates – Enjoy an endless stampede of new content, including seasonal outfits, animals, and weapons to collect.
- The Fast and the Furriest – Flatten your foes while rolling dirty in a Hamster Ball, or mount a Giant Emu and peck your way to the promised land.
There's no confirmed price, but judging by the Steam version, which has been in early access for a few years, it appears to be a free-to-play game with the option to buy additional cosmetic items. If you've been looking for a cute and cuddly battle royale with a bit of a bite, this may just be the title for you when it hits Xbox next month.
