Over the past few years, the turn-based strategy genre has become awash with new entries in some of its most landmark franchises; in retrospect, it should have seemed inevitable that someday, eventually, King’s Bounty would return on modern hardware. But I doubt that even longtime fans of this dormant franchise had expected to witness such an ambitious reinvention of the series’ name. Sure, at its heart, King’s Bounty II is still a grid-centric, turn-based strategy game with a traditional medieval setting, but with this new release, 1C Entertainment and Prime Matter have attempted to integrate more immersive role-playing elements, a grander world, and a completely different pace than the last game in the series. And while some of these new ideas can be well-executed individually, I left King’s Bounty II feeling unimpressed by the package as a whole.

One final trailer has come in for King’s Bounty II. The game has just released on various platforms, including Switch, and today’s video celebrates the news.

Here’s the full trailer:

Yesterday, new Koch Media label Prime Matter and Warhorse Studios confirmed that Kingdom Come: Deliverance is coming to Switch. The announcement came as a bit of a surprise. Although there were previous rumors about a possible port, many had assumed that it would be a difficult task to get it running on Nintendo’s console.

Warsaw Studios explained how the Switch version came to be in a follow up notice today. It turns out that fan feedback is ultimately what set the whole thing in motion.

According to Warsaw:

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is heading to Switch, Prime Matter and Warhorse Studios announced today. A release date has not yet been made known.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance was rumored for Switch after it was listed on Nintendo’s Japanese website. The game’s PR manager later indicated that it was a mistake. Ultimately the title will be appearing on Nintendo’s console after all.
