The silly and whimsical physics-based golf parody game from Copenhagen-based developer studio Triband, What the Golf?, will be whacking its way soon to the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch. A launch date of May 21 has already been confirmed. Check out a trailer for What the Golf? below.

Originally released for Apple’s gaming subscription service Apple Arcade, What the Golf? is dubbed as the “golf game for people who hate golf”. What the Golf? is basically golf at its core, which is putting a ball inside a hole in the fewest strokes possible. However, those traditional concepts are married with absurd mechanics such as moving holes, preparing to drive, but it sends your character flying instead of the ball, sending the ball flying through cats, hotdog carts, and many more funny ways to simulate what golf is like in the weirdest possible way.

What the Golf? made its PC debut via the Epic Games Store a month after the Apple Arcade release. This Nintendo Switch release includes the first foray into multiplayer with what Triband has called New Party Mode. This allows for an exciting local two player party mode where players “compete in a cavalcade of very, very serious golf courses in an attempt to make it to the flag, but both play at the same time (you know, like real golf).” The Switch version also accounts for the hardware’s features such as its touch screen and gyroscopes to add flair for select levels and a few other surprises that players will have to uncover on their own.

What the Golf? is now available for pre-order on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch for $14.99. The game will launch on May 21. You can also get it right now on PC for $7.99 via the Epic Game Store. Lastly, it is part of Apple Arcade’s game subscription service, which costs $4.99 a month. As fun as the game is, there is still no news or confirmation on whether it will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or other PC storefronts.
