Gearbox Publishing and Hopoo Games have announced that Risk of Rain 2 will release on Nintendo Switch, news that was shared in today’s Indie World presentation.

Whether playing solo or with up to four friends, in this third-person multiplayer roguelike you must work together to fight your way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and discover a way to escape the planet.

That challenges you to learn your enemy’s attack patterns to keep yourself safe from harm, as your work to survive against increasingly challenging odds – with each character having their own abilities to master.

“We love the Nintendo Switch and actually dedicate an hour at the end of our days to play together as a team in the office,” explains Hopoo Games’ Duncan Drummond.

“We’re excited to have it come to the Nintendo Switch earlier than planned and can’t wait to tell you all more at PAX West!”

Risk of Rain 2 will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2019.
