UKIYO Publishing and Overhype Studios recently announced that its critically acclaimed procedurally-generated tactics title Battle Brothers is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2020. The game will release with all DLC, including the Lindwurm, Warriors of the North, Beasts & Exploration, and Blazing Deserts expansions.
Battle Brothers is a turn-based tactical RPG, players will create their own mercenary gang in a medieval fantasy world. Players will decide who will they hire and will manage them as a private milita.
“Running a company requires blood, sweat and tears as you balance your budget, equip your crew, and do whatever it takes to put food on the table as you wander through this unforgiving world.
Once in combat, Battle Brothers is a different kind of tactical affair, as you position your players into place. They best be well equipped, however, as different weapons will have different advantages and disadvantages against the rogue gallery of cronies.”
“Battle Brothers was a big success for us on PC thanks to our passionate and supportive community that offered us loads of useful feedback,” said Jan Taaks from Overhype Studios. “Among other things a Switch version of the game was kept being requested to allow Battle Brothers to be played on the go. In addition, we can now bring our challenging, hardcore strategy game to a whole new audience on the Switch!”
“When we first saw Battle Brothers we were instantly in love with it and were really hoping that we could port it to Switch for a whole new audience,” said Martin Hann of UKIYO Publishing. “We love both tactics titles and gaming on the go, so this was a match made in heaven… only with a lot more decapitations.”
