Young Horses have confirmed that the quirky madness that is Bugsnax will be out of PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC via the Epic Games Store on 12th November. That’s right, it’s a PS5 launch title.
The team also revealed the pretty great cast of voice actors that will play the many Grumpuses and the Bugsnax themselves in the game. Here’s hoping they don’t change Chandlo’s face between now and launch, or there will be uproar.
Full cast for the Grumpuses:
Wambus Troubleham – Fred Tatasciore (Overwatch)
Wiggle Bigglebottom – Kenna Ramsey (Background Vocals – David Foster’s live band)
Chandlo Funkbun – Yuri Lowenthal (Spider-Man PS4)

Bugsnax was the real breakout surprise from the PlayStation 5 reveal event back in June, capturing the imaginations of many viewers with its maddeningly catchy music – provided by Kero Kero Bonito – not to mention its weird and wonderful world, in which you are what you eat, and what you eat are the living food items known as Bugsnax, which can only be found on Snacktooth Island.
We spoke to Young Horses shortly after the game’s announcement, diving into the music partnership, the iterative process that led to the game’s form, and more. Check out the full interview here.
Bugsnax will be priced at $24.99 USD, but is now available for pre-order on Epic Games Store with a 15% discount.
