Merge Games and Dark Screen Games have confirmed their decision to delay Bounty Battle on Nintendo Switch.

“We’re sorry to say that we’ve had to make the unfortunate decision to delay the launch of our upcoming All-Star Indie Fighter, Bounty Battle,” Merge Games explains.

“Our goal to provide an amazing couch co-op experience to our community is within reach, but we felt that we still had significant improvements to make that we simply could not achieve without a slight delay.

“Our community’s experience is of utmost importance to us, so keeping that in mind we decided to that the time we needed to deliver Bounty Battle as intended and intact.

“This means that Bounty Battle will no longer release on the 23rd July as previously announced. We will update the community as soon as we have a new release date to share with everyone!

“We would like to take the time to thank you all for your patience and understanding in this matter.”

Pitched as “the ultimate indie fighting game,” Bounty Battle lets you pit your favourite indie heroes against one another.

These characters have been plucked from games such as Guacamelee!, Dead Cells, Darkest Dungeon and Owlboy, and will now have the chance to battle it out in this 2D fighter.

There are more than 25 fighters from over 20 different indie games, and each comes with their own move set, special attacks and Minion companion that you can summon.

With modes like Tournament, Local Multiplayer, Tutorial and Training Room, up to four players can take each other on in over 10 different arenas.
