Since its Early Access soft launch in December, Super Animal Royale has been updated at a hummingbird pace, with playable Super Animal breeds growing from 50 to 140, cosmetic items quadrupling to 450+, all while maintaining a 97% Overwhelmingly Positive (pawsitive?) review score on Steam and nurturing a passionate community of players and streamers. Hot on the slippery heels of an April 1st in-game event that saw all bullets replaced with deadly bananas, Super Animal Royale is getting one of its biggest updates yet, alongside its debut on the Humble Store. To celebrate, the game will be available at a 15% discount and a weekend test session of squads (4-player) mode will be held from April 5th-8th.
The very first Super Birds are also arriving on the island: 24 new feathery combatants bring the total Super Animal count up to 140. The Super Birds arrive alongside their very own avian-themed land, Giant Eagle Landing, with fine establishments like Beakeasy (a seedy nightclub), Eggsotic Cuisine, Flappy Jacks, and the Giant Eagle Rides attraction. It’s a wonderful time to visit Super Animal Royale’s island, especially since Spring has sprung and the new cherry blossom trees are in bloom!
The Giant Feathery Update also adds the highly anticipated “Super DNA Magnet” item to the game, which enables players to focus all of their DNA earning on a specific animal for the next 3 matches to get them closer to the red panda, sloth or any other animal they have their eye on. And the new Super Challenges system, debuting today, provides a new way to earn items including the new Super DNA Magnets. Completing tasks such as slipping other players on banana peels, chopping tall grass to find items, or eating coconuts will earn players bigger and bigger rewards as the difficulty of challenges ramps up. Players unlock a new challenge every day, stacking up to a maximum of three. In addition to Super DNA Magnets, players will be able to earn Animal DNA and Super Serum, which are combined to create new Super Animals in the Research Lab.cript>
