Penguin Wars

Penguin Wars has been delayed from its previously scheduled May 15 release date in North America and Europe to mid-to-end of June, publisher Dispatch Games announced.

The company also announced that it will sell a $39.99 “Launch Edition” of the PlayStation 4 and Switch versions of Penguin Wars exclusively via its newly launched online store. Limited to 5,000 copies, the Launch Edition will include a PC-based digital download code for the complete Penguin Wars soundtrack. The Switch version will also include a physical, threaded, heat-cut Riley character patch.

The PlayStation 4 and Switch versions of Penguin Wars will also be sold at retailers (and the Dispatch Games Online Store) as a $29.99 standard physical edition. The Xbox One version will be digital-only.

Here is a brief overview of the game, via Dispatch Games:

Penguin Wars is a remake of the classic released in 1985. The original rule of using 10 balls to throw at each other is still the core of the game. However, now you can evolve your characters in Story Mode and use those suped up characters in both local and online game play against your friends. This release also introduces multiple sets of new rules, which new and seasoned gamers can both enjoy. Music from the original version released in 1985 has been remixed and updated by notable musicians from Japan, which will make you want to listen to the music while you’re out for a run or dance to on a Friday night with the family.
