7levels have announced their second game for the Nintendo Switch: Home Net Games’ Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight. It will be released on February 21st in Europe and North America, and will cost 9.99€ / $9.99.
Here’s a trailer and some details:
No pilot license is required here – just grab your Joy-Con controllers and take a seat at the controls of a military aircraft. Gather a squadron of the best pilots, and train them to assist you in the riskiest missions. Manage your base: buy planes, recruit and train pilots, and keep building additional structures. Choose between over 30 historical airplanes, which you can fly, repaint, customize, and upgrade. Rule the skies of World War 2 with the assistance of the unique Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
In each of the campaigns for Great Britain, USSR, and Germany you will assume the role of a pilot and squadron leader of an elite air force unit set up to undertake the most dangerous and strategic missions that could turn the tide of the war.
Play through varied missions in each of the available campaigns: experience deadly encounters with enemy fighters, protect ground structures from bombers, fight over the sea to weaken enemy navy, and pilot bombers to destroy strategic targets. These are only a few examples of a dozen mission types you will experience in the beautiful landscapes of Europe, Africa, and Asia. Pick the best planes and pilots for the job and fly over the icy Russian tundra or the sunny deserts of Egypt.
Build your base – construct additional hangars and structures for your pilots and crew. Ensure their safety by building anti-aircraft artillery and barrage balloons. Develop your management skills to cut costs and manage your unit more efficiently – become the ultimate squadron leader!

The next Software update for SMITE (recently released on Nintendo Switch) is going to be pretty big one:
- Cross-play & Cross-progression
- God 100: Merlin – The Master Wizard
- Role Queue
- New Conquest Updates
- The first ever SMITE Battle Pass
As such, the developers decided to push back the release date to February 11th, and use the extra time to add some more polish to the update, but also test the merging of content and progress across platforms. Basically, they want to do things right, though there’s probably going to be some issues left once the update is finally launched.
