Switch players of all ages can now put friendships to the test with this super fun party game.
QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC (June 5th, 2020) – Chainsawesome Games is excited to add Knight Squad, the chaotic one-button party game with a ridiculous amount of game modes, to the Nintendo Switch today! To this day, it is still one of the few local multiplayer games designed to support up to 8 players. The Nintendo Switch version includes both the original Knight Squad as well as all the game modes and characters from the Extra Chivalrous DLC and is now available on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99 USD.
“Since the very first day the Nintendo Switch was announced, fans have been asking that we bring Knight Squad to that platform, it’s just a natural fit,” said Laurent Mercure, Communications Officer at Chainsawesome Games. “We’re a tiny studio and we had our hands full with another project at the time, we couldn’t jump on it immediately. But it’s happening now and we’re super excited. With its minimalist controllers, family time vibe and focus on local multiplayer, Knight Squad is right at home on the Nintendo platform.”
Knight Squad is an insane 1 to 8 player chaotic arena friendship destroyer. Take on current friends and future frenemies in any of the incredibly fun game modes, ranging from Last Man Standing to Medieval soccer. All of that using only weapons from the middle ages… and laser guns… and miniguns.
