Outright Games, Universal Games and Digital Platforms and Bandai Namco Entertainment have announced that DreamWorks Trollhunters Defenders of Arcadia is now available on Nintendo Switch.

This WayForward-developed platform action-adventure game is inspired by the Emmy Award-winning Netflix series from Academy Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

The all-star voice cast from the Netflix series has recorded new content for the game, including Emile Hirsch as Jim Lake Jr., David Bradley as Merlin, Charlie Saxton as Toby and Lexi Medrano as Claire.

This new game will tell a brand new story that takes place in between the distinct worlds of the Tales of Arcadia trilogy, which is made up from Trollhunters, 3Below and the upcoming new series Wizards.

It acts “as a key narrative beat that unifies the trilogy,” and allow you to become the hero of Arcadia – levelling up your armour and abilities to become more powerful than ever, with the chance to team up in local co-op multiplayer.

“Trollhunters Defenders of Arcadia builds on the fascinating narrative and compelling characters that have been expertly established in the popular trilogy,” explains Jim Molinets, Universal Games and Digital Platforms senior vice president of production. “The game provides a deeply rich and immersive gameplay experience that we hope fans will enjoy with friends for a long time to come. “

DreamWorks Trollhunters Defenders of Arcadia is now available at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
