HandyGames and Massive Miniteam have announced that Spitlings will release on Nintendo Switch, a cute but hardcore action-arcade game that’s tailor-made for playing locally with friends.
Up to four players will each control a Spitling, which is a rectangular creature with teeth that it can spit or use to jump. However, in Spitlings you win together and lose together. That means that if one player fails on a level, everyone has to start all over again.
There is both a Story Mode and Arcade Mode with challenges to conquer – whether you’re playing solo or with friends. And then you can create your own levels in a four-player co-op editor, with the developer saying that the simple tools will see even those without any prior experience creating a working level in minutes.
“We’re extremely excited about this opportunity. For our first game, we couldn’t have wished for a better publisher than HandyGames,” enthuses Massive Miniteam founder and producer, Milan Pingel.
“They are nothing but supportive and have the experience to make sure that Spitlings reaches the audience it deserves. We got a true co-op partner in them!”
Spitlings will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2019.
