“We regret to inform you that we must hold the release of Toy Soldiers HD for Nintendo Switch for a bit longer,” the developer explained in an update.
“Although we passed extensive quality assurance testing it was discovered that the game’s software is not communicating properly with the consumer version of the console when in multiplayer mode.
“Our partners are collaborating with us to quickly implement a solution. Collectively, we all want you to be able to enjoy the full Toy Soldiers HD experience. Whether in single or multiplayer, we want you to experience the game’s hybrid FPS tower defense gameplay. Survey the battlefield, carefully place your units before the first wave of attackers arrives, and then jump directly into the action and control machine guns, artillery, mortars, flamethrowers and more.
“We look forward to seeing you take to the skies and rain down fire from above, take out enemy bombers or earn your victory in exciting dogfights as you pilot the first airborne war machines. Control fearsome armored vehicles and tanks with explosive firepower as you win the war and earn your upgrades for the next thrilling battle on the road to victory! We will keep you updated and look forward to releasing the game soon.”
This award-winning “multi-genre action-strategy game” was originally released on Xbox Live Arcade, and has now been “overhauled and upgraded with new content, skins, gameplay, expanded game modes, improved controls and graphical upgrades.”
Including all the original downloadable content and “a few new levels,” you will have the chance to either command your antique World War I toy soldiers from above or take direct control from below.
You must lead your foot soldiers, cavalry, tanks and planes to victory, deploying guns, gas, howitzers, mortars, troops, flamethrowers and vehicles to protect your Toybox as you fight to control the trench-filled diorama battlefields of Europe.
Toy Soldiers HD will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide, with a release date or window to be confirmed.
