+It's a single screen multiplayer brawler but not just a Towerfall clone like so many others are. It's team based, and it has different roles! And strategy! 3 different ways to win a match! +It has 8 player battles. How many other Switch games have simultaneous 8 player action? +It also has online! We could make a NW team and go kick everyone else's butt! +It's a bunch of fun! +The developers are from Chicago. Experience the patented Chicago style gameplay!
So I mistakenly thought this had 8 player battles on the same system but I guess it is only 4 per system... you need at least 2 systems if you want to play 8 players. Hmm, a little disappointing. Anand / Brandon... one of you needs to get this game!
Anyway, played a few hours, it's super fun! Not *quite* the same experience of playing with a bunch of raucous drunks in an arcade, but still fun!
My only small complaint about my game is the same one I have about the arcade game... most matches I play, no matter who I play with, tend to end in military victories. I'd say probably 60-70% end that way. Especially if the 2 queens are constantly going after each other, like they often are. And now with all of these new weapons it seems even easier to kill a queen? I think they could balance it a bit better by making military victories a little harder somehow. Just a little. The ideal balance would be all types of victories happening at about the same amount over time... 33%ish for each type of victory, a super balanced game. Right?
