Arc System Works will launch Othello for Switch via the Nintendo eShop on March 3 in Europe and “TBA” in the U.S., the publisher announced. It will cost $4.99 / €4.99.
Here’s an overview of the game, via its official website:
What is Othello?
Othello is a simple game that all can enjoy. It is easy to learn but hard to master. Even after 40 years since it first began, Othello continues to withstand the test of time and to be loved by players of all ages.
In Othello, players take turns to place their disks; Black represents the first player while white represents the second. Place each disk by sandwiching it with the opponent’s thus converting them to your own. The player with the most number of disks in the end of the game wins.
A Game for All
Othello for the Nintendo Switch is designed for up to 2 players, from beginners to all-time players.
For single player mode, the game provides a spectrum of difficulty level from 1 to 16 for players to choose from.
The game provides a hint feature, whereby players could display the next possible moves. In addition, do-over feature allows players to retrace their last move. New comers could pick up the game with ease!
Othello supports multiplayer too! Detach the Joy-con and share it with your friends or family. Have fun in the 2 player mode!
