A main asset for Grapple Dog week. The image background has an in-game gameplay screenshot and some game-related print. Over that there's the Grapple Dog logo along with the text "Grapple Dog Week - 17-23rd October - A whole week of Pablo"
Pablo is back! Super Rare Originals and Medallion Games are super excited to announce Grapple Dog Week that’ll be taking place 17-23rd October. To kick off a whole week of content around our favourite grapple-wielding pup, we have some major announcements to share…

“Grapple Dog is a game that feels like it’d slot right in alongside the Gameboy’s best.”

“Grapple Dog absolutely has a lot of accessibility wins.”

— Can I Play That?


You heard that right! We’re ecstatic to announce that Super Rare Originals are heading to Xbox with Grapple Dog as our first-ever Xbox game. Our exhilarating 2D pixel art platformer will be released digitally on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S later this year.

🐕 6 colourful worlds – Sail across the map to explore 6 worlds, featuring 33 levels filled with hidden collectibles to find, secret areas to investigate, spectacular boss battles to overcome, and bonus levels to master

🐩 Play your way – Hone your grapple skills with optional collectibles and a testing speedrun Time Trial mode, or utilise the many in-built accessibility options to play without restrictions – have fun however you see fit

✨ Bold & funky – A bold, colourful art style from a pixel art veteran makes Grapple Dog pop from start to finish, with a funky fresh soundtrack that’s sure to stick in your head, and buttery smooth 60fps gameplay

We’ve been so excited to share this news with you and cannot wait for Xbox players to be able to experience Pablo’s lighthearted adventure. All aboard because he’s setting sail with his merry band of fearless adventurers. We’ll have a release date for you soon! But wait… there’s more!
