It’s been a short while since the drill-wielding hero has graced consoles, but Mr DRILLER has made a triumphant return in Mr DRILLER DrillLand – it’s available now on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Title sound familiar to you? That’s probably because it’s a remastered release of the 2002 GameCube game of the same name, though that was exclusive to Japan so this is Western gamers’ first opportunity to play the game. Neat, right?

Marking the series’ debut on the Nintendo Switch platform, Mr. DRILLER DrillLand is an action-puzzle game that challenges players to drill their way to the bottom of the screen by destroying colorful blocks in the game field, creating combos of colorful chain reactions and avoiding enemies all the while. The new release delivers new updates to its graphics, gameplay and HD cutscenes.

Mr. DRILLER returns in Mr. DRILLER DrillLand to invite players to a secret amusement park known as Drill Land, located 500 meters underground. Players can explore and conquer the five attractions in Drill Land, each with their own set of unique gameplay rules and objectives.  Mr. DRILLER DrillLand also features competitive multiplayer modes where up to four players can race to the finish or battle it out in Drill Land on one console; a “Casual Mode” is also available for players who want to dig and explore Drill Land at a leisurely pace and enjoy a day in the park.

Mr DRILLER DrillLand is available now on the Nintendo Switch and PC. Check it out on the Nintendo eShop through this link.
