The Game Bakers have announced the firm’s latest entry in the deep-sea action-RPG series SQUIDS will be released on Nintendo platforms.

Here’s the synopsis: “Infectious black ooze threatens the Squids’ lush underwater world, turning ordinary crustaceans into dangerous mutants. The Ocean is endangered; it’s up to you and your squad of squids to save their peaceful homeland from assured destruction.”

SQUIDS Odyssey takes the first two episodes in the oceanic saga and blends them together into a new edition, filled with extra mechanics specifically designed for consoles “and a couple of surprises too. ”

Controls have been revamped, a new Squid hero will star for the first time,it contains new missions, new levels, new tricks, new unique ability-boosting helmets and more.

“Nintendo hardware always had a prominent place on our living room shelves as we were growing up,” says Emeric Thoa, creative director at The Game Bakers. “We’re excited to contribute our Squids to their modern gear.

“The kid in me can tick that point off his bucket list.”

A small look at the game was shown during a montage video during a Nintendo Direct earlier today.

SQUIDS Odyssey will be released both physically and digitally through the eShop for 3DS and Wii U this fall.
