Ronimo Games are about to raid your Nintendo Switch. After a successful PC launch last year, the Vikings of Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon are about to turn their attention to the Nintendo Switch, as Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon launches on Nintendo’s console today.
Originally devised for the Nintendo Wii U, Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon is a side-scrolling strategy game that mixes the 2D strategy with an exuberant aesthetic that plants tongue firmly in cheek. Putting players in the role of Viking chief Redbeard as he takes a trip through a world full of tundra, forest, and desert. You’ll even delve into the underworld, taking on Vikings, Persians, and irksome demons in an attempt to avert the oncoming Shwarmageddon.
Coming from the same team that put together the incredible Awsomenauts, this particular 2D strategy follows a similar 2D vibe, with some ideas that should seem familiar to 2D tower defense enthusiasts. On your journey, you will access a range of warrior, with a range of unique abilities. Over 50 units can be unlocked across a ten-hour solo campaign. Everything from Viking ax-throwers to carpet riding Persians and golfing barbarians are included. Warlords and generals can ultimately use these troop types to build their own custom deck of mayhem, as they romp across a world map.
This raucous battle does not just include troops. Players can stack up special skills, structures, and the odd rampaging northerner to pummel the AI into defeat. After you’re done with the AI, Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon hosts online and local multiplayer options to build and battle armies of miscreants across the internet and at home. Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon looks like a cheeky wee tactical game that is full of charm and challenge. If you are ready for battle, Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon is out now on the Nintendo eShop.
