Bandai Namco’s upcoming party game for the Nintendo Switch, Pui Pui Molcar Let’s Molcar Party! reveals new information via updates on its official website and YouTube channel. Minigame announcements aside, cosmetic upgrades and community options were also given brief introductions.

Pui Pui Switch Updates

Even more details are now given for what perhaps would be the primary game mode of the title: Pui Pui Racing. Of course, the very first trailer a month ago already revealed a few shots of these, although this will be the first time that some of these additional shots (presumable from the same teaser footage) were unveiled.

For the big question… would this racing mode involve power-ups like standard kart-type games? Most likely not in the same manner as the OG Nintendo-based kart-game. For one thing, the new information does not explicitly explain anything remotely similar. That being said, the trailer and the subsequent recent screenshots do tease of environment-based bonuses, instead of “bombs” that deal offensively with other racers. This includes your run-of-the-mill speed bumps and track shortcuts, which are clearly shown as well.

The second minigame introduced in the latest info update is the Pui Pui Nawabari (Turf) Battle. This seems to be more like a mini-Othello, mini-Splatoon-style grid-based combat where your objective is to color as many squares as you can with the color that you represent. There is a time limit, to which you are free to steal as many squares as you can from other Molcars. Also, a UFO will drop carrots from time to time, which would provide a speed boost if you manage to fill up your boost gauge.

As for the non-game updates, there is the Observe feature, where you can travel around town to interact with other Molcars. The Mol-Shop is given more detail, which as you might imagine, allows you to choose and buy new add-ons and accessories for your Molcars. Being a fully-paid title, these so-called Pui coins most likely won’t be microtransaction currency, so it’s probably safe to say accessibility won’t be a problem (just yet). Photo studio is… a photo studio. It brings up an in-game screenie editing program that provides simple options to spice up what you snap.

Finally, new Molcars are also unveiled such as Codroe and Chocomint, which adds to the forty-plus total that will be included in the game.

Pui Pui Molcar Let’s Molcar Party Recap

As already hinted by the aforementioned updates, this upcoming game version of the oddly popular mascot car series is effectively slated as a modified version of many of the popular party games that are already available for the Switch, such as Mario Party (duh) and Momotaro Dentetsu.

While you’re supposed to just have fun with your buddies playing its ten different minigames, the longer-term objective is to liven up your own version of Molcar Town. By continuously challenging the minigames, the players are given more chances to add more and more elements to the fluffy urban landscape.

Moreover, players can also personalize their own Molcars by using a myriad of different accessories and add-ons. This can either help you create a party-gamer-oriented character that’s yours and yours only, or two create even more interactions within Molcar Town.

Lastly, the Molcars themselves, which individually should be familiar to fans of the series (along with their traits and quirks). Collectively though, the base game will be offering at least forty Molcars to meet and collect, and potentially add more as DLC in the near future.
