March 9 – PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Europe, UK, Australia and New Zealand
March 10 – Nintendo 3DS in the Americas, Europe, UK, Australia and New Zealand

Xbox One users can also pre-order Blast ‘Em Bunnies or the Super Mega Bundle containing the game, 5 arena packs, 5 skin packs and 3 multiplier bonuses from February 10.
Blast ‘Em Bunnies pits you the player as a cute, cartoon bunny called Bang Bang who must defend your rabbit burrow, against an onslaught of evil bunnies. These bunnies have captured your offspring and one of them, the evil Throatslitter, is holding them hostage. Just how long can you and your little ‘uns survive? Grab your carrot rifle, watermelon machine gun, turnip mortar or runner bean laser and take them down! Shoot coins to collect them and spend them on new weapons, upgrades and ammo including sticky raspberries, heat seeking chilli seeds, shredding leek lasers or bouncing, splitting, exploding pumpkin bombs!
In its latest console release Nnooo have crafted a fun, frenetic first person shooter with a dark side. Simply pick up your controller and get blasting bunnies! Players on motion-capable devices (PS4, PSVita and Nintendo 3DS) can also choose to aim using motion controls as well as traditional controls.
The game features 4 different weapons to purchase and upgrade and 16 different bullet types to combine with your chosen weapon for maximum tactical effect. By shooting coins the player can save up to purchase each weapon, upgrade, ammo or health upgrade to allow them to survive longer against the ferocious evil bunnies! Should you save up for the Runner Bean Laser or go straight for new Heat Seeking Parsnip ammo? Tough decisions abound!
With over 50 medals to be unlocked and missions which refresh either on completion or daily the player will always be faced with a challenge. Those looking for harder difficulties and modes can take on Survival mode in Easy, Normal, Hard and Very Hard (where you need to survive for as long as you can) or try out Slaughter mode in Normal, Super or Ultra difficulties (where you must survive for 2 minutes with weaker weapons and health depending on difficulty).
Each battle takes place in an arena with bunnies spawning to bring you down. Runners, Walkers, Burrowers, Grenadiers, Blockers and Bosses all conspire to defeat you. The Throatslitter macabrely tries to dispatch your young and the Golden Bunny evades your bullets lest you unleash Frenzy Mode!! Players can also customise their experience with purchasable add-on content from each platform’s online store. There are 5 new arena and matching skin packs which cover Ninjas, Zombies, Urban Army, Clowns and Luchadors. Add-on content can be purchased individually or in bundles with bundles giving a deeper discount on pricing.
Players on PlayStation platforms can purchase the game and add-on content as part of Cross-Buy and receive both the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 versions for one combined price.
Founder and Creative Director of Nnooo, Nic Watt says:
