Adelaide, Australia – December 10, 2019 - Juicy Cupcake announced today that their fast-paced, underwear-fueled party game, Brief Battles will be butt-slamming onto the Nintendo eShop on February 21, 2020!

“A Nintendo Switch version of Brief Battles has been hotly requested, and we’re thrilled to share that it’s almost here!” said Andrew Freeth, co-founder, Juicy Cupcake. “We took great care developing the Switch version in-house, and have it running buttery-smooth while preserving the same quality you’ll see on other platforms.”

Gather up to three friends, cheek-to-cheek on your couch to dominate in Knockout, team or free-for-all Classic Battle, Hold the Gold and Underpants Collector, slipping-on super-powered underpants from the likes of Flaming Hot Pants and Buns of Steel.
