CPH, DECEMBER 18th, 2017
Game Swing are excited to announce that their highly acclaimed dodgebrawler, Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure will soon be available on the Nintendo Switch™ eShop in an exclusive DELUXE edition.
“It’s bright, colorful, silly, funny, and built on a simple yet solid set of mechanics that will keep you playing match after match.” Eddie Inzauto – gamernode.com
“It’s a shit ton of good old-fashioned couch co-op fun” Jonathan Beach – VICE Gaming
It’s hard to think of a company that has done more for local multiplayer and this type of social gameplay experience than Nintendo, so naturally launching on a Nintendo platform was always at the top of the wish list.
When the Nintendo Switch™ was announced, Game Swing finally got the opportunity to self-publish and make a version specifically for this audience.
“This is the first time we self-publish and it’s been a great experience. We’ve been able to make exactly the tweaks and improvements we felt was right for the system, and Nintendo have been so great to work with. We are very happy with the DELUXE edition of Stikbold! and think it will fit perfectly on Nintendo eShop” Martin Petersen – CEO of Game Swing
