Smash Boats gets a co-op update on Switch, Xbox release

If maritime violence is your thing then Smash Boats might tickle your fancy. The game is already out on Nintendo Switch and will be getting a co-op update on August 18th, the same day the game is released on to Xbox consoles.

The game has been created by veteran game devs who have worked on NBA Jam, NFL Blitz, Warhammer 40k, Darksiders, Life Is Strange, and Call of Duty. As far I know none of those games featured small boats battling in pools avoiding suspicious brown “logs”.


Smash Boats is an action game with a seemingly simple goal: Smash everything in sight to conquer all the arenas (pools)! Sounds easy – but with relentless enemies, zany Mayday events, and unusual water hazards that can hinder your progress… it’s anything but, really. We’re talking about arcade-style difficulty in a glorious, colourful package filled to the gills with boats, special moves, wacky events, obstacles, and more. So if you end up having trouble completing some stages on the Nintendo Switch, just have a friend join you for couch co-op! More than two? Party games – all 3 of them, all new – support up to 4 players.

Want some key features? Of course you do!

  • A boatload of pools to smash in – including a toy chest, a pool table … and even a toilet!
  • 18 boats with unique smash-abilities such as: frying pan, shark bite, lasers, water-pound – and many, many more.
  • All boats can also submerge, ram, backward ram, power turn, and brake.
  • Conquer stages and collect stars to unlock new boats and pools!
  • Couch co-op (2-player co-op) and Party mode (3 competitive party games for 1-4 players) are exclusive to the Nintendo Switch – for now, at least.

Smash Boats on Nintendo Switch will receive the co-op update next Thursday, August 18th. The game will be available on Xbox One/Series S/Series X on the same day as well priced at $9.99, the switch version is a little more expensive and clocks in at $11.99.
