Ready? Lets Mambo! De Mambo out now on Nintendo Switch™

De Mambo, the spicy action platformer for 1-4 players is out now on the Nintendo Switch™ eShop for the bite-sized price of £9.99/€10.99/$12.99. Get it while it’s hot!

The Dangerous Kitchen’s first born, De Mambo was created solely for pleasure… as you engage in Mambo Combat! Grab a Joy-Con™, charge your measly one button and release at different times to do three different attacks! Knock your opponents off the screen and break the level however you decide (thanks to some flimsy architecture), to make your game marginally different each time you play.

De Mambo launches with 3 modes; ‘Mambo’ where 2-4 players battle it out until one is left standing; ‘Solo’ mode where one player feasts on a mélange of 70+ salivating gameplay challenges; and ‘Survival’ mode the 1-4 player mode where you try and survive… from an onslaught of the evil Personal-space Invaders. 

The Dangerous Kitchen will prepare a healthy dose of new content for De Mambo after release, including 26 more ‘Mambo’ levels and new ways to play.

Watch the launch trailer here.


Lucy Dove (Designer and producer)

“Nintendo has always been a haven for local multiplayer, and the Switch seems like a natural extension of this. The Switch gives us the opportunity to bring De Mambo to an audience of players hungry for local multiplayer experiences."

Amit Rai (Coder and animator)

“This being our first game and all, we’re absolutely terrified at how people will react when they play the final version. It’s been such a crazy-long journey and we’re just happy that soon we won’t have to work on this godforsaken game any longer.”

Shaun Roopra (Artist and writer)

“We’re so happy with the game we ended up making, how fun all three modes are and the amount we achieved with so little. It took a while and we died mentally, physically and probably spiritually too, but we wouldn’t change it for the world.”

Media assets About De Mambo

De Mambo is a chaotic and fast paced single-screen action platform game that lets players take control of up to four characters locked in infinite mambo! The aim of the game is to knock your opponent off the screen… and use your measly one button to attack with three levels of charge. Break the level however you decide (thanks to some flimsy architecture) to make your game marginally different each time you play.
