Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics
Earlier this week, Ripstone, Auroch Digital, and Modiphius announced that Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics was headed to the Nintendo Switch. The game is currently on Kickstarter, with only a few hours left: click here if you’re interested in supporting this project.
Here’s what the game is all about:
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is a World War II themed strategic role-playing game in which the player controls an army of Allied heroes trapped behind enemy lines trying to uncover and foil a Nazi plot of terrifying evil. The game draws from the award-winning Achtung! Cthulhu roleplaying universe developed by Modiphius, which sees the Nazis turn to other-worldly mythical beings to bolster their war effort.
The game encompasses an array of unique gameplay features, including an innovative combat system constructed around the theme of light vs darkness. Representing the battle of ‘good vs evil’, Allied characters find solace in the light whilst the opposing Nazi army hide in the shadows awaiting their moment to strike. A skilled player can use this light and dark feature to provide an edge to their gameplay strategy.
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics also includes an intricate momentum system, which encourages the player to think strategically about their long-term plan to overthrow the Nazi reign of terror. Each successful action builds momentum for the player, which in turn opens up new lines of tactical attack. Each playable character has a tailored momentum action, ranging from a rake of machine gun fire to a fast snap-shot with a pistol. When layered with basic commands and attacks, this momentum system allows the player to build ingenious combinations of tactical brilliance.
Tomas Rawlings, Design Director at Auroch Digital, enthuses: “It’s a real honor to work alongside Modiphius and Ripstone on what will be a premium Cthulhu-mashup. Having worked with the Ripstone team before back in the PlayStation 3 days, together we made amazing strategy games, and I’m confident history will repeat itself!”
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
Earlier this week, NIS America announced that Happy Birthdays would be released on June 5th in North America, and June 8th in Europe. The Upcoming Games page has been updated to reflect this.

Use your controller or touch-screen controls, to launch Midnight into the night sky, but watch out!
The world of Midnight is a dangerous one thanks to the likes of spikes, circular saws and plenty of other dangerous objects and even if you do manage to get Midnight into the safe zone, to advance to the next level, there’s the added challenge of trying to complete each level in the least amount of shots as possible to get all three Stars.
- 70 engaging levels that get progressively harder.
- Enhanced graphics that are even greater than those seen in 36 Fragments of Midnight.
- Controller support added.
