Like other Mr. Driller games, the point of the game is to drill through blocks and try to reach the bottom of the stage, while making sure you don’t run out of oxygen or accidentally crush yourself. This particular game takes place in a theme park that has five “attractions”, each themed with different gimmicks, including one that is themed after another classic Namco arcade game, “Hole of Druaga” (Tower of Druaga).

While the game was only glanced over in the English Nintendo Direct, the Japanese Nintendo Direct mini showed off a bit more of the game, which you can check out below:

Mr. Driller DrillLand will release for the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam on June 25, 2020. The game is immediately available on Nintendo Gamecube.
