- Katana Kami: A Way of the Samurai Story
- Chained Echoes
- Winning Post 9 2020
Ukiyo Publishing have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Battle Brothers, a procedurally-generated tactics game developed by Overhype Studios. This version will also get some DLC post-launch: the Lindwurm, Warriors of the North, Beasts & Exploration, and Blazing Deserts expansions, which add new gameplay mechanics, quests, creatures, equipment, and more.
Here’s a trailer and some details for the game:
Battle Brothers is a turn-based tactical RPG in which players accrue their own mercenary gang in a gritty, medieval fantasy world. You decide whom to hire, where to go, what contracts to take on, and how to manage your private militia. Running a company requires blood, sweat and tears as you balance your budget, equip your crew, and do whatever it takes to put food on the table as you wander through this unforgiving world.
Once in combat, Battle Brothers is a different kind of tactical affair, as you position your players into place. They best be well equipped, however, as different weapons will have different advantages and disadvantages against the rogue gallery of cronies. Split shields with axes, stun enemies with a mace, form a phalanx with spears, or crush enemy armour with a war-hammer. Everything in Battle Brothers is permanent, so once you lose a soldier, they’re gone forever. And if you lose your whole squad, it’s game over! The world of Battle Brothers is rough and unforgiving, ensuring that the stakes are always high both in battle and in the monetary management outside of it.
Battle Brothers (Switch – eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
