Waku Waku Games have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch, and this one is bound to please fans of Tower Defense games… especially if they also happen to be dog lovers! Introducing Soul Dog TD, a tower defense game developed by Libragames in which you to get to fend off waves of enemies alongside a brave dog. It will be released on Nintendo Switch this coming Spring.

Here’s a trailer:

Your goal in Soul Dog TD is to fight your way through 30 waves of enemies. Your companion dog does more than just fighting: it also collects the souls of defeated enemies, allowing you to use them to strengthen your defenses. And when you pick up one such soul, you get to choose 1 of the 3 items they’re carrying. The key to victory lies in picking up the right items, and at the right time (because enemies keep attacking!).

Here’s some more details and some screenshots for the game:
