'Butter Royale' Debuts on Apple Arcade as Family-Friendly Take on Fortnite

Butter Royale has landed on the App Store as this week's addition to Apple Arcade across the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac. The battle royale game is essentially a family-friendly version of Fortnite, replacing assault rifles and rocket launchers with sauce-shooting, baguette-blasting modified kitchen tools as weapons.

The game has both a 32-player online mode against live players and a single-player offline mode against bots, and the goal is to be the last person standing. The fast-paced food fights take less than five minutes.

Butter Royale is safe for kids aged 9+ to play without parental supervision, according to its Singapore-based developer Mighty Bear Games. As with all other Apple Arcade games, there are no ads, in-app purchases, or loot boxes, and unlike Fortnite for iOS, there is no option to enable voice chat.

From the App Store description:

- 32-Player Food Fight Shooter - Play as any of 50 characters from all walks of life. Knock out other contestants with delicious food. Be the last one standing in this third-person shooter
- Squad Up - Indulge in multiplayer Culinary Combat with your friends, in teams of four
- Solo Survival Game - Survive this battle royale game solo for ultimate bragging rights
- Fire Food Blasters - Pick up epic food blasters like the Breadzooka from all over Butter Island, and fire away
- Unlock Exclusive Content - Stay fresh with exclusive seasonal characters, melee food items, trails, and flags
- 1 Butter Island, 9 Zones - Explore a sprawling map, from the rolling Flour Fields to San Francheesco. Choose your starting point wisely!
- Be First to the Fridge - Collect the delivery and get special ultra rare loot
- Steer Clear of Butter - Watch out for hot Butter and get yourself to safe zones!
- No Wi-Fi, No Problem - Play your favourite battle royale game offline.

Butter Royale can be downloaded from the App Store with an Apple Arcade subscription. Apple's gaming service launched in September, providing iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac users with access to over 100 games with no in-app purchases or ads for $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year in the United States.


In a recent press release, Apple promised that its Arcade service will receive new games and expansions every month.

Kinda seems like...

This is what you would call a Fortnite clone? Uh... I don't think so. This game features Battle Royale mode, but looks nothing like a game of Fortnite.
...you guys are being a bit too literal with "clone".

This. Looks like they’re(macrumors or the Dev) just using the Fortnite brand for clicks/attention.
Pretty sure the context implies MR is using "clone" in the context of the battle royale genre. Fortnite is just the most popular BR so it would generate instant familiarity for anyone curious about Butter Royale's gameplay.
As in:
Dude1:"Greetings and salutations Cornelius. By chance have you heard of the new game Butter Royale? I wonder how it plays."

Dude2:"Ahoy hoy Archibald. Fortuitous circumstance finds me with such knowledge. I happen to be a member of a club of select few gentlemen who partake in the Apple Arcade. Butter Royale is our latest fare, so think Fortnite, but with armaments of food instead of armaments of, well arms."

Dude1: "Arms?!?! My word! I can't imagine flailing bodily appendages hither and yon."

Dude2: "Tut tut old boy. Not arms and legs. No, good sir. Arms as in straps, burners, heaters, iron, gats, shotties, ninas, roscoes, tommies, choppers, whole nine yards, and ma deuces and such. Ya feel me?

Dude1: "Cool, cool." :)

Apple Arcade is still not available in China and Hong Kong. Which is strange because Hong Kong's App Store has absolutely nothing to do with China's App Store.

The lack of the voice chat might put some Fortnite players off. But it sounds like a nice amusing offering in its own right.
