That nutty squirrel from the Ice Age series is back and this time in gaming form as Ice Age: Scrat’s Nutty Adventure is currently being developed by Just Add Water with publishing duties being handled by Bandai Namco and Outright Games.
So what kind of shenaningans does Scrat get into?
Scrat, the calamitous sabre-toothed squirrel, will embark on an epic quest through classic Ice Age locations to recover his cherished acorn from the ancient Scratazon Temple. Only the legendary Crystal Nuts can unlock his prized possession, which Scrat will attempt to collect as he faces fierce prehistoric creatures, to return the missing relics to their rightful home. Players will guide Scrat through a perilous journey across icy terrains, raging geysers and burning lava. Explore adventure-packed locations to discover treasures that unlock special powers and help Scrat to jump higher, grab heavier objects and find every last treasure in this all-new Nutty adventure!
Here’s what Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games, had to say about this project:
“This is an exciting time for us as we look to expand on one of the biggest properties in kids’ entertainment in a way only video games can. Revealing to the world how fun Scrat’s first solo adventure game is, as well as announcing when you’ll be able to play the game itself, is something we hope will delight Ice Age fans of all ages.”
Ice Age: Scrat’s Nutty Adventure will release worldwide digitally and at retail on October 18th, 2019.
