It’s coming maybe 5-10 years too late for peak Peppamania, and more than a few voice actors seem to have changed since my kids were into this show, but in 2021 we’re finally getting a proper Peppa Pig video game.


My Friend Peppa Pig will let kids/you explore the show’s world and hang out with its characters, hopefully allowing players the chance to live out show highlights like digging up the road and hosting a catastrophic BBQ for the boys.

The game will be out on PC, Switch, PlayStation and Xbox this “autumn”.

UPDATE: Ah, looks like Bandai Namco isn’t handling the release in all markets. In the US, the game will be published by Outright Games.



I am convinced that the Peppa Pig world is some kind of post-apocalyptic landscape where humans died off, but only mammals and marsupials gained intelligence; the fish, birds, insects, and reptiles still don’t appear to be sentient. There’s also something slightly disturbing about the family all falling down whenever they have a good laugh at the end of an episode, but I can’t quite figure it out yet...
