Ends up it IS safe to go back into the water.

Remember back when you first heard that Baby Shark song and thought, “Catchy, but I wonder if there’s a video game.” Well, there is. Outright Games has announced that Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party—a rhythmic adventure game developed in collaboration with The Pinkfong Company—will be coming to Nintendo Switch and other platforms on September 15th, 2023.

Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party is described as a “cooperative rhythmic adventure” in which players unlock a story of family and friendship. Up to four players can become Baby Shark, Mommy Shark, Daddy Shark, Grandma Shark, or Grandpa Shark in local co-op mode, or players can choose to swim solo. Either way, fans will hear 30 songs, including “Baby Shark,” “Disco Sharks,” and “Shark Dance Party” on their adventure.

The story unfolds in the unique style of following the Shark Family as they take a vacation across the ocean to the Fin-Tastic Festival, the biggest music contest in the whole ocean. Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party allows players to explore 7 recognisable locations from the fan-favourite Baby Shark videos such as the stunning Tropical Bay, the vast Ocean City, and the dark Kingdom of the Deep, to get to the festival. The game features Rhythm or Runner Mode where players have to stay on the beat and complete levels to collect cards and stickers. For extra fun, the five playable characters from the Shark Family are customizable with unlockable costumes and skins to collect in-game.

The game has been created with all family members in mind, and designed to be accessible and educational for even the youngest Baby Shark fans. As they travel across the ocean, young gamers, between 3-6 years old, will also be helped to develop their psychomotor skills through rhythmic gameplay and a gradual difficulty curve. To help young players who are learning to read, the game developers have incorporated a full game voice-over for all dialogue, location names, and instructions. The game features festivals and holidays from around the globe such as Día de los Santos as well as music from many genres like orchestral music, reggaeton, and rock. Short levels and easy repetition mechanics position Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party as the perfect introductory game for young gamers to learn how to play.

Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party will launch for Nintendo Switch on September 15, 2023, and will be available in 26 languages. (Are there that many ways to sing, “do do do do-do do-do?”) For more information, visit outrightgames.com.
