Death Squared Moving Its Way To Nintendo Switch This Summer

Death

Earlier this year, the team over at SMG Studio released Death Squared, an innovative (and hilarious) puzzle game where you move around various squares on a series of maps, avoiding obstacles and trying to activate switches so you could move on to the next level.

The game’s been a pretty good hit thus far, and now it’s moving on over to another platform – the Nintendo Switch. The developers announced today that the game, previously released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, will be arriving on Nintendo’s platform during the second quarter of this year – so around sometime this summer.

Here’s a quick description for the game, in case you missed it:

Death Squared is a cooperative puzzle game for 1, 2 or 4 players, best enjoyed with loved ones who don’t mind a little arguing for the greater good.

Prove your teamwork skills in Death Squared as you solve puzzles together or die trying! Each player needs to guide a robot to a colour-coded goal, but the path is beset with deadly traps and hazards. Teams of players will need close observation and communication to keep each other alive and discover a solution together.

Complete the main campaign in single player or with two players, then take a group into four-player Party Mode for the ultimate teamwork trial! For those that can’t get enough, head to the ‘Vault’ to find extra experiments recommended only for the brave.”

In addition, here’s a rundown of the game’s features:

  • The perfect puzzle gateway game for you to play with your “non-gamer” partner
  • 1 or 2 Player ‘teamwork’ story mode with 80 challenging levels
  • 2 or 4 player party/chaos/family mode with 40 insane levels
  • 10+ hrs of puzzling co-op gameplay
  • Includes 30 “Vault” 2 and 4 player levels for those who want an even bigger challenge. Deemed too hard for the main game with more coming post launch for FREE!
  • best enjoyed in couch co-op with a friend or three sitting by your side, enabling you to cover each other’s back or simply just trash talk them when they die unnecessarily.
  • Play by yourself in “Lonely Co-op” mode if you can’t find a co-op partner. It’s definitely a harder challenge, like patting your head and rubbing your belly at same time!

We reviewed the game a while back and found it to be quite entertaining. So if puzzling’s your thing, save some room on your Switch for this one!
