Chucklefish bringing Pocket Rumble and Wargroove to the Nintendo Switch + Stardew Valley multiplayer

We already knew that Chucklefish was bringing the popular Stardew Valley to the Nintendo Switch, but it turns out the publisher has two other games coming to Nintendo’s new console: Pocket Rumble and Wargroove!

Pocket Rumble

Inspired by SNK’s classic fighters for the Neo Geo Pocket Color, Pocket Rumble is described by its developers as a “streamlined, beginner-friendly 2D fighting game”. It does that by retaining all the gameplay elements of traditional fighters, while reducing the level of execution and memorization to a bare minimum.

That way, both experienced players and newcomers can enjoy the game:

  • experienced players can learn the game fast, and instead focus on mastering the deeper element of strategy and mind games
  • newcomers can get used to a fighting game without feeling overhelmed

Here’s the key features of Pocket Rumble:

  • Simple, 2-button controls and universal, easy special move inputs with no complex joystick motions
  • On-screen frame data bar and visual indicators for properties like invulnerability help players understand fighting game mechanics and how individual moves work
  • Near-flawless online multiplayer with GGPO netcode
  • HD rumble support is a console specific feature, and allows you to really feel the difference between weak and strong attacks

And here’s some screenshots for it:

Pocket Rumble (Switch – eShop) will be released in March in Europe and North America.

Wargroove

Wargroove is a turn-based strategy game that looks absolutely nothing like Advance Wars, and… ok, that last bit was lie (which is why fans of the series are pretty excited about it). It offers local and online matches, for one to four players. You can check out some gameplay footage in the Nintendo Switch Nindie Showcase recording!

Wargroove (Switch – eShop) will be released later this year in Europe and North America.

Stardew Valley

It’s no secret that Stardew Valley is coming to the Nintendo Switch (it was officially announced a couple of months ago), and we already knew that multiplayer was coming later down the line. But what we didn’t know is that the Nintendo Switch version of the game would be the first to get that multiplayer, on console.

Stardew Valley (Switch – eShop) will be released this Summer in Europe and North America.

The Upcoming Releases page and the list of confirmed games for the Nintendo Switch have both been updated!
