Bad North: Jotunn Edition will be available for Switch on September 26, Raw Fury has announced.

As a reminder, this update includes campaign changes, difficulty enhancements, new features, and more. Additional information can be found below.

What’s New?

Campaign Changes

We’ve reworked the campaign progression to show the enemy types on levels, advance the Viking Frontier faster and replaced individual gold with a shared gold pool. This is all comes together to allow you to make much more informed strategic decisions between levels and makes tackling multiple islands per turn a more viable approach.

New Upgrades & Meta Progression

There’s 4 more Items to find and we’re also introducing Commander Traits – smaller, passive buffs for your Commanders – so more than ever you will need to work with what you have and each run will be more unique. Over time you can unlock all these Items and Traits as Starting Upgrades, which you can select for your initial 2 commanders when starting a new game.

Difficulty Enhancements

There are some new options for more casual play, such as Checkpoint Islands which give you a reset point, acting as a safety net for when your campaign reaches a tragic conclusion. You can also opt out of the “Iron Man” behaviour of the game by enabling Replayable Levels on a new campaign (no more save scrubbing needed!). And if more casual is not what you’re looking for, we’ve also added an unlockable Very Hard difficulty for those who want the challenge.

And the Rest…

On top of this we’ve tweaked up a lot of the basic / core mechanics, tightened up a lot of gameplay, polished the visuals further and added some quality of life features.
