Chucklefish and Robotality have announced that Wargroove 2 will release on Nintendo Switch later this year.
In this sequel to the multi-award-winning Wargroove, trouble is stirring on the shores of Aurania after an ambitious new faction unearths forbidden relics that hold catastrophic consequences.
You must take to the field, sea, and sky with a cast of new Commanders to wage turn-based war on the battlefield. Retaining its “signature charming pixel art and challenging turn-based combat,” the sequel promises a brand new story-rich campaign, an advanced tiered Groove system and an all-new roguelike game mode called Conquest.
“We’re thrilled to be back partnering with Chucklefish to bring the next iteration of the Wargroove series,” enthuses Robotality art director Simon Bachmann. “It’s been a pleasure taking Wargroove to the next level, in a way which feels fresh and exciting for strategy fans, whilst still being true to a community who are passionate about this world and its characters. All of us at Robotality have had a great time developing the next chapter in the Wargroove universe, and we hope fans will have as much fun playing, as we have creating.”
