The Game Bakers has announced that Squids Odyssey will release on Nintendo Switch, their tactical turn-based RPG with a fling mechanism.

When a murky black ooze starts to turn once friendly crustaceans into cranky monsters, a scrappy shoal of Squid heroes has no choice but to fight back.

This adventure takes place under the sea, where, aside from quirky dialogue and cheerful music, you will have hero classes, stat-boosting helmets, power-ups and each level’s environment to consider.

“While working on Furi for the Switch, we kept thinking that Squids would be a perfect fit for the console,” creative director Emeric Thoa explains.

“You can use the touch screen or buttons and sticks, the format is perfect to enjoy the dialogues, the art shines on the small screen but you can also blast it full scale on a big TV, and you can take your game anywhere. We didn’t know it then, but the game was actually designed for the Switch! This is definitely our best version so far.”

Squids Odyssey will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on July 5th.
