You know you just love it when there is a catch to a game release, however this time it won’t be an Xperia Play exclusive. Halfbrick, developers of Fruit Ninja among other hit games, has announced a Puss in Boots themed version of Fruit Ninja which will land on Android on November 28th, 2011. There is one catch though…
It will be released as the free game of the day on the Amazon App Store and only on the Amazon App Store exclusively. How long that exclusive period will last is unknown, although it is generally a couple of weeks. The Puss in Boots themed Fruit Ninja game has actually been out for a bit on iOS and it’s about time it finally came to Android. Now we just have to be patient and wait for the Jetpack Joyride port to finally arrive as well, which it will.
For now though you can enjoy some screenshots and the official trailer for Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots until it is released on Monday. Oh and for those of you who own a Kindle Fire have no fear, it will be optimized for that as well. Once it is done as the free game of the day on Amazon, it will be priced at $0.99. Full press release after the trailer below.
