Chucklefish showcased a ton of new footage from the Switch game Wargroove during a live stream today. We’ve posted the full recording below, which contains well over an hour of gameplay.

Chucklefish shared a short but sweet blog post for Wargroove today. Attached above, the studio showed a first look at the game’s world map. More information about the game is promised “soon.”

Chucklefish is back with a new blog post about Wargroove to provide fans with a status update. The team is focusing on palette swapping the various assets, which is necessary since more than one person can be playing with any given faction in multiplayer. Read up on the full blog here.

Chucklefish kicked off its series of development blogs with an introduction for Queen Mercia. Mercia is one of the game’s Commanders, who act as in-game avatars and units.

Here’s the full rundown:

“The Commanders are at the heart of Wargroove – a cast of exciting and energetic characters who each have their own distinct personalities and motivations. As well as acting as your avatars in-game, your Commanders will also be able to fight alongside your army as powerful units on the field. Be careful though, for if they fall, the battle is lost! Here’s a look at the first of our Commanders.

Queen Mercia is the young daughter of King Mercival II, the legendary and beloved ruler of the Cherrystone Kingdom. She is well-meaning, but inexperienced in the matters of diplomacy. Much more comfortable on the battlefield than on the throne, she hopes she can use her energetic and fearless spirit to rule the country she has now inherited, and gain the respect of those around her.

In battle, Mercia charges in with her mighty greatsword. It probably isn’t a great idea to underestimate her based on her friendly demeanour…”

Earlier today, Chucklefish announced Wargroove for the Switch eShop. We now have a fact sheet and the debut trailer for the game below.

WarGroove is a modern take on the simple yet deep turn-based tactical gameplay popularized in the 2000s by handheld games such as Advance Wars. As big fans of those games we were disappointed to find that nothing in this genre was available on current generation platforms and set out to fill the gap ourselves. WarGroove aims to recreate the charm and accessibility of the titles that inspired it whilst bringing modern technology into the formula. This modern focus allows for higher resolution pixel art, robust online play and deep modding capability, ultimately creating the most complete experience for Advance Wars and TBS fans.

Each commander has a lengthy campaign of their own, exploring their motivations and personality
Local and online multiplayer skirmish mode with complete rule customization
Local and online competitive and co-op play
Easy to use in-game map and campaign editors
Beautiful high resolution pixel art battle scenes and charming aesthetic
Starbound’s Floran race reappears as a playable faction!
A number of new to the genre gameplay features TBA at a later date
