Young Horses Announces Bugsnax as PlayStation 5 Launch Title

Bugsnax releases alongside the PS5 and heads to other platforms on the same day with a star-studded voice cast.

PlayStation 5 is set to have some bugs at launch — Bugsnax, that is. Development studio Young Horses announced the game that plays host to that oh-so-catchy theme song will release for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 12 for $24.99.

Bugsnax revolves around a lone journalist following up an enigmatic lead from a questionable source. Elizabert Megafig claims to have found an island full of mysterious creatures called Bugsnax, but Clumby Clumbernut (your boss) thinks it's all a lie.

The island is home to a community of critters called Grampuses who need the Bugsnax to survive. These Grampuses are voiced by some recognizable names too, including:

  • Wambus Troubleham – Fred Tatasciore (Overwatch)
  • Chandlo Funkbun – Yuri Lowenthal (Marvel’s Spider-Man)
  • Filbo Fiddlepie – Max Mittelman (Saitama in One-Punch Man)
  • Shelda – Debra Wilson (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order)
  • Floofty Fizzlebean – Casey Mongillo (Evangelion)
  • Beffica Winklesnoot – Cassandra Lee Morris (Persona 5, Trails of Cold Steel)
  • Elizabert Megafig- Helen Sadler (Battlefront
  • Triffany Lottablog- Haviland Stillwell (Devil May Cry 5)

Though Bugsnax is a PS5 launch game, it's not certain yet what, if any, DualSense enhancements it might feature.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
