The critically-acclaimed side-scroller and shooter combo My Friend Pedro will soon be getting a physical edition for the Nintendo Switch through publisher Nighthawk Interactive (Rick and Morty Virtual Rick-ality, Friday the 13th: The Game). The physical version will be available for purchase on November 12.

Developed by Deadtoast Entertainment and published by Devolver Digital (SCUM, Gorn, Hotline Miami), My Friend Pedro is a violent ballet about friendship, imagination, and one man’s struggle to obliterate anyone in his path at the behest of a sentient banana. Gameplay revolves around going through challenging levels filled with enemies that you have to shoot, dodge, jump, and weave through. Escape the belly of the underworld by relying on your gun skills and the advice of your wise banana friend.

Listed below is My Friend Pedro’s physical version overview:

  • Retail Exclusive Content – Everyone can go bananas with a specially created 11-by-17-inch poster, sticker pack, reversible cover art and the game’s full, gritty soundtrack in this retail edition.
  • Full Throttle Gun Ballet – Players can unleash a graceful torrent of destruction with an incredible level of control over weapons and body. They’ll twist and turn through the air while aiming both hands at priority threats, or line up a perfect bullet ricochet to drop an unsuspecting gangster from behind.
  • Mix It Up – To break up the high octane running and gunning, dynamic sequences are introduced to offer new challenges, such as thrilling motorcycle chases and slower paced physics-based puzzles.
  • Slow Motion Braggadocio – When the action amps up to a frenzy, players bring it all into focus by shifting into slow motion to calm the nerves and steady the aim.
  • Parkour! – While battling through each level, the number of points earned can be increased by incorporating acrobatic flips, wall jumps and rolls into enemy takedowns.
  • Race to the Top – A global leaderboard is primed and ready for everyone to rack up points landing hits, kills and elaborate acrobatics.

Currently, My Friend Pedro is sitting on an Overwhelmingly Positive rating on Steam, with praise towards its gameplay mechanics, replay value, and overall fun factor. For physical game collectors and fans of My Friend Pedro, buying the game’s physical version should be a no-brainer. The physical version will be available in November 12 and will retail for $29.99.
