Nighthawk Interactive, Liquid Bit, and BumbleBear Games have confirmed a release date for Killer Queen Black on Nintendo Switch.
This is a new take on the arcade eSport game Killer Queen, Killer Queen Black has been rebuilt from the ground up and optimized for the portable home console.
With its Glam Rock-inspired 16-bit pixel art style, the intense eight-player arcade-action platformer will let you fly solo or team up with three of your friends as you race to reach your victory conditions.
To help you clinch the victory, you can wield five distinct weapons whether that be the Sword, Morning Star, Laser, Lance or Stinger.
There are four games modes in Quick Match, Ranked, Custom and Arena, with support for both online play and local multiplayer.
“Bringing Killer Queen home has been a long journey but we can finally show our efforts,” enthuses Liquid Bit co-founder Matt Tesch.
“Soon players around the world can scream and shout ‘SNAIL, WATCH THE SNAIL!’ at home or the arcades.”
Killer Queen Black will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on October 11th priced at $19.99, and is now available to pre-order with a 15 percent discount.
