Think outside of the box and solve puzzles aplenty in BOXBOY!, available exclusively from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS family systems! In this 2D puzzle-platformer, use boxes to overcome obstacles and reach the goal at the end of each stage.

Meet Qbby. Qbby’s a square character who can’t jump very far or very high, but he does have one very special ability – he can create boxes out of thin air. Not only that, but he can generate multiple boxes at once and arrange them in different ways: in straight lines, in a step-like formation, you name it! Created shapes can be placed down or thrown to wherever they’re needed. With this skill on his side, no situation can box Qbby in!

The number of boxes that Qbby can create at once changes depending on the stage, so be wary of your limits! Get creative with shapes to beat every stage – and with over 150 stages, you’ll really need to box clever! You could build some steps to climb to new heights, string a bridge together to cross a chasm, hook onto things or activate contraptions. If you’re walking into a dangerous situation, use your talent to form a shield and slip through safely.

If you’re a brainbox, you can pick up a crown in each stage – they’ll disappear once you use a set number of boxes, so efficiency is key! Good performances also earn you medals, which can be traded for goodies, such as costumes that can improve your abilities or extra challenges. If you’re not happy with an attempt, use the instant reset function and start the stage again, or if you’re really stuck, you can use Play Coins to get a hint on how to proceed!

You can also send a demo version to another Nintendo 3DS family system via Download Play, to let a friend try the game out too. Help Qbby get to the goal in BOXBOY!, available now from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS family systems!
