Chucklefish has announced that Wargroove will release on Nintendo Switch next month, a turn-based strategy game that will see you take control of an army and its commander unit to wage war on their enemies.
With more than 23 Commanders from the four warring factions – the Cherrystone Kingdom, Heavensong Empire, Felheim Legion and Floran Tribes – to choose from, accessibility has been “at the forefront” of the game’s design, meaning that it is easy to pick up but difficult to master.
Each Commander has a special move called a Groove that, once activated, can change the battlefield in different ways. The Cherrystone Kingdom’s Mercia can heal adjacent units, whereas Valder of the Felheim Legion can conjure the undead to spawn a new unit.
There are also local and online multiplayer skirmish modes that will let you compete against or work co-operatively with friends, and the chance to use in-game editors to create your own custom scenarios and maps.
Wargroove will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on February 1st, and is now available to pre-load.
