Hammerwatch heading to Switch

Posted on 1 week ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 3 Comments | 0 Likes

Crackshell and BlitWorks have announced that the acclaimed game Hammerwatch is coming to Switch. It’s due out on December 14 in North America and December 23 in Europe for $9.99 / €9.99.

Hammerwatch is a hack and slash dungeon-crawler that lets you play alone or up to three other players. The new console version will be the first to add some new features, including the new Sorcerer character, a new control scheme for consoles, new character art, and enhanced balance in the skills.

BlitWorks has ported some big indie titles to Wii U. The studio just brought Super Meat Boy to the eShop last month, and previously worked on Don’t Starve as well as Badland. They’re not stopping there though. BlitWorks is currently cooking up Wii U versions of the Metroid-esque Axiom Verge and the F-Zero-inspired racer The Next Penelope.

We recently caught up with BlitWorks co-founder Ángel Horna to learn more about BlitWorks and what it’s like porting games to Wii U. Horna spoke about why the eShop version of Super Meat Boy wasn’t an entirely easy task (and how it came about in the first place), gave updates on The Next Penelope as well as Axiom Verge, and much more.

Head past the break for our full discussion.

Super Meat Boy was confirmed for a May 12 release on the European Wii U eShop a few days ago. An announcement sent out today reveals that the game will also be out in North America on the same day.

Super Meat Boy will cost $14 / £13 / €14 at launch, which is a 20 percent discount. It’s seeing a 20 percent discount until May 26.

Along with Super Meat Boy’s Wii U release date news, the announcement contained an interesting section which seems to tease a 3DS version. Here’s that relevant part of the press release:

Super Meat Boy launched in 2010 on Xbox 360 and PC, and was immediately labeled as a definitive work in the sub-genre of brutally difficult platformers. Since then, gamers all over the world have been waiting to play it on other platforms. It was finally released on PS4 and Vita last year and with the Wii U version arriving this month, only the 3DS will be missing (but maybe not for too long ;)) Gotta catch them all!
