Square Enix Collective and Barcelona-based developer Titutitech have announced that Oh My Godheads: Party Edition will release on Nintendo Switch next week.
The manic multiplayer game challenges players to carry magical Godheads back to their base, resulting in a gameplay experience that mirrors a traditional capture-the-flag style mode. But, while you must defend yourself from each other’s attacks, you must also take on the Godhead itself.
There are some new additions in the Party Edition, whether that be the new tower level, Godhead and art gallery, Tournament mode modality, the chance to play Trials mode solo or in co-op mode, a brand new Platinum medal tier as well as general gameplay re-balancing and improvements.
“We’ve wanted to bring the new Party Edition of Oh My Godheads to Nintendo Switch for some time,” explains Titutitech co-CEO Federico Sauret.
“When we originally launched the game, we set out to recapture the sense of fun so many couch-based multiplayer games pulled off in the 1990s. Bringing friends and family together through games is something Nintendo has long been a master at, so it makes complete sense to add Nintendo Switch to our roster.”
Phil Elliott, Square Enix West director of indie publishing, adds: “The studio has been hard at work building on the best elements of Oh My Godheads for this Party Edition, and we think Nintendo Switch owners are in for a treat.
“As well as optimising it for the new format, it’s going to be exciting to see just where players indulge in some retro-style couch multiplayer in the coming months. Every sofa is a potential playground.”
Oh My Godheads: Party Edition will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 25th priced at £11.99 (€14.99/$14.99), with a 25 percent discount for the first two weeks.
