Those Awesome Prinny Games Are Coming To Switch

It’s time for some penguin-fueled mayhem, dood.

Prinny are a race of penguin-like creatures beloved by Disgaea fans. They’re small, have tiny leg legs, and a humorously expressionless face (at least, until they’re in distress). They also end their sentences with the word “dood,” which is not technically a word, but don’t tell them that.

While prinny started out as the mascot of the Disgaea franchise, much like moogles from Final Fantasy or slimes from Dragon Quest, they’ve since somehow become popular enough for their own spin-off series.

Prinny: Can I Really Be A Hero? came out in 2009 for the PSP as a comedic side-scrolling platformer. You play as one of 1,000 different prinny looking for ingredients for the Ultra Dessert. It was fun and funny, but some found it difficult to control your little prinny and keep it alive. Good thing there’s 1,000 of them.

The sequel, Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood!, came out in 2011 on the PSP. Now the 1,000 prinny have been tasked with finding Etna’s lost panties–for some reason.

And now, both games have been combined in a remastered port for the Nintendo Switch called Prinny 1-2: Exploded And Reloaded.

The game is basically just a remastered version of the first two games with all previously released DLC and updated graphics for the Switch. Hopefully they’ve tweaked the controls to be a little tighter for the Switch, otherwise we can imagine the game will have the same complaints as the original.

There’s also a special Just Desserts Edition which will be a physical release that includes a collector’s box, a soundtrack CD, a “Scrapbook of Memories” art book, a Prinny Not-Lego “Block,” and an Asagi Wars EX poster.

You can pre-order Prinny 1-2: Exploded And Reploaded now, with deliveries starting in Autumn of 2020. The collector’s edition is priced at $59.99, although expect the digital-only version to be cheaper.
