Nintendo Reveals TowerFall for Switch Console – Release Date, Gameplay Info


TowerFall is set to be launched for the Nintendo Switch as announced by Nintendo in the 2018 Nindies Showcase. TowerFall is expected to be released on September 27, 2018.

Although just announced for the Nintendo Switch, TowerFall has already been on many other platforms like Xbox, Playstation and mobile devices. The version for the Switch will also include all the content from TowerFall Dark World and TowerFall Ascension expansions.

TowerFall is an action indie game developed by Matt Thorson with his company Matt Makes Games. The game involves up to four players that play as archers in a battle royale mode in an archery combat arena. In Multiplayer, archers have a limited amount of arrows. However, players can catch other player’s arrows, while treasure power ups give players shields, wings and more arrows with increased power.

In a blog post by Matt Thorson himself, the developer breifed new players about TowerFall and how it works. He also elaborated that, “Inspired by classics from the golden age of couch multiplayer, TowerFall centers around hilarious, intense versus matches - best played against friends, sitting cross-legged on the floor within punching distance of each other. The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but hard to master, with a huge amount of gameplay variants, arrow types, power-ups, and levels. And when you need a break from the competition, team up in 1-4 player co-op modes, where you’ll fight off a wide variety of monsters, enemy archers, and bosses.”

The Nintendo Switch version of TowerFall will exclusively include Madeline from Celeste as a playable character. Celeste is also a very popular game that was released this year by Matt Makes Games.

The biggest addition to the Nintendo Swith version of TowerFall will be the new 6 player mode. This creates a chaos in the versus stage as six archers frantically fight for survival and glory. TowerFall will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch on September 27, 2018. It will be available for a price of $19.99. However, you can also pre order it over at the Nintendo Switch eshop.
