Ripstone and Dreadbit are putting Ironcast on Switch next week. Those who intend to download the game will need 574MB of free space. You’ll be able to purchase Ironcast on August 10 via the eShop.


Following Ironcast, Ripstone has announced its second game for Switch. The company is currently working on Chess Ultra for the console.

Developer Dreadbit has shared more details about the Switch version if Ironcast. The game will come with some improvements (including extra content).

Here’s what we know:

  • 4 ways to play: with Joycon/pro controller when docked with the TV, Handheld mode with Joycons, tabletop with Joycon/pro controller and lastly (but also my favourite!) Handheld with touch-screen.
  • We’ve bundled all previous DLC Commanders and Ironcast in with this version. It’s the most complete package to date, with 7 Commanders and 7 mechs.
  • You can now fire on the first turn.
  • You can now sell older or unwanted systems for extra scrap.
  • Complete re-balancing of the gameplay experience to make for a more consistent and thus more fair, campaign experience.
  • All Commendation (persistent) unlocks now have more punch to them, making for a more meaningful upgrade after you die in a campaign.
  • Complete re-factoring of all UI in the game, to ensure fonts and buttons are all usable and easy to read whether playing on the Switch’s handheld mode or a 120″ projector screen.

Ironcast will be available for Switch on August 10.
