Versus Evil and EVC have announced that Wintermoor Tactics Club will release on Nintendo Switch next month.
This narrative-driven turn-based tactics RPG is set in a high school during the 1980s, and has looked to combine the contemporary setting with tactical fantasy RPG battles.
You play as Alicia, a member of the Wintermoor Academy Tactics Club which sees students play the popular tabletop game of the time, Curses and Catacombs.
Obsessed with finding the Ultimate Club, Principal Enfield announces a mandatory snowball tournament between the Academy’s clubs. You will need to use your tactical knowledge to defeat your competition in battle.
You will unravel the sinister truth behind the War of the Clubs as you work to break down the walls of high school cliques, make new friends and unlock their true potential.
This supports the game’s underlying narrative and themes about inclusion, and the way we often narrowly define ourselves and others based on the groups we belong to.
“Wintermoor is really accessible for first-time tactics game players, with a puzzle-like take on the tactics combat, while at the same time giving long-time players a charming challenge to sink their teeth into,” Versus Evil general manager Steve Escalante explains.
“After launching on Steam and receiving a lot of love for the game, we’re excited to present this wonderfully funny, wholesome RPG experience to console players around the world.”
EVC team lead Ben Walker adds: “We’re excited to work with Versus Evil to put this game on consoles, and we’re especially excited to see more people enter the world of Wintermoor.”
Wintermoor Tactics Club will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 10th September 2020.
