Switch was the top-selling console for Battle Chasers: Nightwar, developer Airship Syndicate revealed to Nintendo Everything in an interview this year.

Stefanelli mentioned that Switch “raced past PlayStation 4 and Xbox One” despite releasing much later on Nintendo’s console.

With the Switch’s boom in popularity over its past year, more and more developers are clamoring to get their games onto Nintendo’s newest hardware. While it’s an absolute treat to see indies and third-party developers finally wanting to invest in Nintendo, sometimes the rush to get onto the market can lead to problems along the way. While Battle Chasers: Nightwar has the makings of a solid little JRPG, it feels like it could’ve used a little bit more time before making its debut on the Switch.

As Battle Chasers: Nightwar prepares for its launch on Switch early next week, THQ Nordic issued a new accolades trailer. We have it below.

Airship Syndicate provided a new status update on the Switch version of Battle Chasers: Nightwar today.

Lately, the team has been taking care of some “tricky bugs”. These have now been addressed and the game has returned to QA.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar has been out on a number of platforms for quite some time. Unfortunately, the Switch version has been missing in action. Airship Syndicate had some issues with Unity that have taken awhile to address.

A new Kickstarter post provides an update on the situation, and thankfully, we have good news to report. The team “made some significant breakthroughs” and believes a build will be submitted to Nintendo “very soon.” The actual release will still take a number of weeks though since even after Nintendo has approved it, THQ Nordic’s manufacturing could take six weeks.
