Pocket Rumble, Wargroove, and Stardew Valley coming to Switch

WarGroove is a new Advance Wars-esque strategy game.

WarGroove

ChuckleFish Games has announced it’s bringing Pocket Rumble from Cardboard Robot Games, its own newly announced WarGroove, and Stardew Valley from ConcernedApe to Switch.

Pocket Rumble will launch as a console exclusive for Switch in March. WarGroove will launch for Switch alongside Xbox One and PC later this year. Stardew Valley will launch this summer, with Switch being the first console to support the game’s new multiplayer feature.

Here’s an overview of all three titles:

Pocket Rumble (Cardboard Robot Games, March 2017)

This deep 2D fighter makes players want to throw down, anywhere, anytime. The battles get even more intense with the inclusion of HD rumble: When players get hit by a weak attack, it’ll feel very different from getting rocked by a strong one. The game is scheduled to launch as a console exclusive for Nintendo Switch in March.

Wargroove (Chucklefish Games, 2017)

Wargroove is a modern take on the simple yet deep turn-based tactical gameplay popularized in the 2000s by handheld games such as Advance Wars. As big fans of those games we were disappointed to find that nothing in this genre was available on current generation platforms and set out to fill the gap ourselves. Wargroove aims to recreate the charm and accessibility of the titles that inspired it whilst bringing modern technology into the formula. This modern focus allows for higher resolution pixel art, robust online play and deep modding capability, ultimately creating the most complete experience for Advance Wars and TBS fans.

  • Choose from one of 12+ groovy commanders from the 4 warring factions, unlocked as you progress through Story Mode
  • Each commander has a lengthy campaign of their own, exploring their motivations and personality
  • Local and online multiplayer skirmish mode with complete rule customization
  • Local and online competitive and co-op play
  • Easy to use in-game map and campaign editors
  • Beautiful high resolution pixel art battle scenes and charming aesthetic
  • Starbound’s Floran race reappears as a playable faction!
  • A number of new to the genre gameplay features TBA at a later date

Stardew Valley (ConcernedApe, Summer 2017)

Nintendo Switch will be the first console to support the game’s new multiplayer feature. The open-ended, country-life RPG is scheduled to launch this summer.
