Funcom and Mighty Kingdom have announced that Conan Chop Chop’s release on Nintendo Switch has been delayed into Q1 2020, so that the developer can add online multiplayer.
“We had an absolute blast showcasing the game at E3 and Gamescom earlier this year. It was especially gratifying to see how much fun people had playing the game in co-op mode,” explains Mighty Kingdom CEO Philip Mayes.
“The teamwork, the banter, the way people moved ever so sneakily towards their near-death companions in order to pick up their gold when they fall… We couldn’t have been happier with the reception.
“One of the things we get to do with the extra time is expand multiplayer from just couch co-op to also include full online multiplayer. This has undoubtedly been THE most requested feature after we started showing off the game, so we’re very excited for the opportunity to bring that in.”
Conan Chop Chop is an action-adventure with roguelike elements, with support for up to four players in local (and now online) multiplayer.
Set in Hyboria, players are challenged to thwart wizard Thoth-Amon’s evil plan to resurrect the even eviler wizard Xaltotun. Succeed, and he will condemn the world to an eternity of darkness and enslavement.
With randomly generated maps and armed with tons of weapons and abilities, you must summon all your courage and swordsmanship to stop him.
Conan Chop Chop will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q1 2020.
