Space War Arena announced for the Nintendo Switch, out next week

Next week, strategy game fans on Nintendo Switch are in for a treat with the release of Space Wars Arena on February 14th. Developed by Playchemy and Ed Annunziata, it’s a strategy action game that blends real-time space combat with tactical and strategic gameplay. It’s an homage to Spacewar, a game you’re most likely not familiar with as it was “released” back in the 1960s!

Here’s a trailer for Space War Arena:

And here’s some details and screenshots for it:

Starship combat on a grand scale has never been this addictive or accessible. Direct the tides of war in lightning fast strategic battles and unleash astonishing arsenals against opposing fleets to destroy their bases and claim their space. Space War Arena is a unique homage to the original videogame. Build an armada from 30 different types of evolving units, unleash your cunning, adapt to the enemy, and command your fleet in epic AI encounters or vicious same-screen multiplayer. Engage!

Epic Space Battles – Enter a universe of exciting real-time space battles that are accessible, but deeply strategic. Think quickly and deploy the right units at the right time, manipulating their launch trajectories for added tactical depth.
Deck Building – Mix and match over 30 types of units and experiment with different play styles as you progress and take your squadrons into battle. Deal out and deal with nimble fighters, sweeping lasers, drone factories and atomic warheads.
Solo Campaign – Liberate the galaxy in pitched battle against AI masterminds. A solo campaign pits you against a variety of configurations and scenarios, charging would-be commanders to upgrade their fleets and become masters of all they behold.

Space War Arena (Switch – eShop) comes out on February 14th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
