Below you will see a trailer for Death Road to Canada, newly confirmed to be coming “soon” to the Switch.

The game seems to be a bizarre, top-down beat-em-up featuring a plethora of characters fighting zombies. Couch co-op included.

Wayward Souls started out as a mobile game, but it’s now starting to reach new platforms such as PC. A Switch version may also be a possibility in the future.

When asked about Wayward Souls coming to Switch on Facebook, RocketCat Games responded that the team is unsure if it will happen. However, they are “looking into it”.

If you haven’t heard about Wayward Souls in the past, we’ve included a brief overview and trailer below.

“Wayward Souls is an action-adventure dungeon crawler with randomized levels and permanent death. It features quick, twitch-based combat where tactics, positioning, and timing matter, controlled through touchscreen gestures. Two years in the making, it’s designed for quick playthroughs and lots of replay value.”
