Adult Swim Unwraps New Xmas Specials, Nintendo Switch Game

The War on Christmas
The War on Christmas

There’s something special about the winter holidays — the festive magic, the family bonding, good will toward man — that is so inspiring for animators. In Adult Swim’s case, it’s inspired the wonderfully crass creative minds behind Robot Chicken and Squidbillies to plumb new depths of satire with all-new seasonal episodes. The No. 1 network for young adults is also celebrating the launch of a new monster fighting/cooking puzzle game on Nov. 20: Battle Chef Brigade, developed by Trinket Studios (scroll down for trailer!)

On Sunday, December 10 get your stocking stuffed with the naughty ‘n’ nice Freshly Baked: The Robot Chicken Santa Claus Pot Cookie Freakout Special: Special Edition at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, followed by Squidbillies: The War on the War on Christmas at midnight. Fans will also want to stay tuned for a new episode of The Jellies! “The Trial of the Century” at 12:15 a.m.

And on Dec. 24, ring in Christmas Eve with a Robot Chicken holiday marathon with seven back-to-back specials: X-Mas United, Lots of Holidays Special, Born Again Virgin Christmas Special, ATM Christmas Special, DP Christmas Special, Half-Assed Christmas Special and Dear Consumer.

Freshly Baked: The Robot Chicken Santa Claus Pot Cookie Freakout Special: Special Edition – Happy holidays everyone! Robot Chicken joins Santa for the one Christmas he’ll never forget. The North Pole elves dream of the simple toys of holidays past. Krampus puts in a good word for the coal industry. St. Nick finally meets his idol: Jared Leto.

Squidbillies: The War on The War on Christmas – Early enlists as a foot soldier in the war on the War on Christmas. Through repetitious caroling and aggressive coffee-ordering, Early finally ends the failing media’s attack on Judeo-Christian values.

From Adult Swim Games and Trinket Studios, Battle Chef Brigade arrives ahead of Thanksgiving for $19.99 on Nintendo Switch and Steam. It is set in the fantasy realm of Victusia, where members of the titular Brigade are renowned for their skills at taking down monsters and turning their prize kills into scrumptious cuisine! As aspiring squaddies Mina and Thrash, players journey through a ruthless tournament, using old school brawler moves against monsters, solving combo puzzles and navigating light RPG elements.

Battle Chef Brigade features hand-drawn characters and enemies, two playable characters with unique VO, daily leaderboard challenges and an original soundtrack.
