Forever Entertainment has announced that it’s teaming up with Aslan Game Studio on Pawn of the Dead, a 3D game based on chess. Switch will be getting the title on December 30.

Pawn of the Dead has players taking on the role of Leonard, the King of the White Kingdom, as they attempt to defend their land against the marching army of the undead. The game is highlighted by a campaign mode which has 64 levels. Support is also included for local multiplayer.

Here’s some additional information:

As Leonard the King of the White Kingdom, you have to defend your land against the marching army of the undead. With a help of your Queen Elona, the bravest warrior in the realm, you must overcome the threat. During your quest, you will face a sinister reflection you forgot a long time ago…

Explore the storyline through animated cinematics and complete the campaign mode which consists of 64 levels – or pick a side and play against a friend!

Pawn of the Dead is a 3D game based on chess, in the style of Battle Chess. The game is distinguished by unique mechanics: when the undead (Black Pieces) capture your soldiers (White Pieces), they turn them into Black ones too! But don’t worry, you have the most skilled men under your command!
