Nidhogg 2 for Switch launches November 22

The wurm reaches another platform.

Nidhogg 2

The Switch version of Nidhogg 2 will launch via the Nintendo eShop on November 22, developer Messhof announced.

Nidhogg 2 first launched for PlayStation 4 and PC in July 2017, followed by Xbox One in July 2018.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

The wurm has returned and it must feed! Shed your garments and paint the walls with the flesh of your enemies, for only one can be worthy of sacrifice.

The rules are simple. Reach the other side and kill anyone that stands in your way. Deftly parry and rend their throats, riddle their bowels with arrows, or squish their brains between your toes. The wurm cares not for chivalry.

Sequel to the indie hit of 2014, Nidhogg 2 builds upon the award-winning gameplay of its predecessor with new weapons to wield and levels to master, head-to-toe character customization, and the captivatingly grotesque art of Toby Dixon.

And, with music from artists including Mux Mool, Geotic, Doseone, Osborne, and Daedelus, Nidhogg 2 has a soundtrack so good that even the menu screens are awesome.
