Game Description


Armored ACORNs is a local co-op 2D arcade beat ‘em up for Wii U™. It follows the adventures of four friends, who happen to be squirrels, that go on a quest to save their kidnapped friend (also a squirrel) from an evil energy corporation (run by a cat). Small in stature, they were unable to save their friend from being kidnapped, but eventually discovered hidden machines called ACORNs that more than helped even out the playing field.

Key Features

  • Arcade-Style Beat 'Em Up Action — Play as squirrels, robots, vehicles, and more through retro-inspired fun! And don't forget to launch your Armored Mode — a special super ability for each squirrel when the moments get tough!
  • 1-4 Player Local Couch Co-op Multiplayer — Team up with up to 4 players on screen and use the unique repair ability to save your friends in the action!
  • An Epic Story of Four Friends — Including comic-style cut scenes and quirky dialogue to introduce the heroes Flapjack, Foxglove, Nitelite, and Pothole as they fight their way through caves, forests, cities, and more!
  • Exclusive Wii U™ GamePad Experience — Scan your enemies and other objects for helpful hints along the way!
