The insanely fun Bomberman/Gauntlet hybrid party game will put friendships of all ages to the test
Chainsawesome Games, the Quebec Indie game studio with the tongue-twister name, is announcing today that Knight Squad is coming to the Nintendo Switch on June 5th! The chaotic one-button party game with the ridiculous amount of game modes was met with a lot of enthusiasm during its original launch in 2015. To this day, it’s still one of the few local multiplayer games designed to support 8 players!
“Since the very first day the Nintendo Switch was announced, fans have been asking that we bring Knight Squad to that platform, it’s just a natural fit,” said Laurent Mercure, Communications Officer at Chainsawesome Games. “We’re a tiny studio and we had our hands full with another project at the time, we couldn’t jump on it immediately. But it’s happening now and we’re super excited. With its minimalist controllers, family time vibe and focus on local multiplayer, Knight Squad is right at home on the Nintendo platform.”
Knight Squad is an insane 1 to 8 player chaotic arena friendship destroyer. Take on current friends and future frenemies in any of the incredibly fun game modes, ranging from Last Man Standing to Medieval soccer. All of that using only weapons from the middle ages… and laser guns… and miniguns.
