Knight Squad is a chaotic party game set to release on Switch this week on June 5, courtesy of Chainsawesome Games. Boasting support for bots and up to eight players, a spunky Medieval theme, and the previously released Extra Chivalrous DLC content, Knight Squad appears to be worth a look from anyone down for an easy-to-pick-up party game.
There are plenty of modes to get excited about in Knight Squad, including Team Capture the Flag, Capture the Grail, Juggernaut, Last Man Standing, and Domination Soccer (I’m particularly interested in that last one).
Chainsawesome Games is quite happy to finally answer fan requests and launch the game on Switch. Here’s what Laurent Mercure, a communications officer from the studio, had to say:
“Since the very first day the Nintendo Switch was announced, fans have been asking that we bring Knight Squad to that platform, it’s just a natural fit.
We’re a tiny studio and we had our hands full with another project at the time, we couldn’t jump on it immediately. But it’s happening now and we’re super excited. With its minimalist controllers, family time vibe and focus on local multiplayer, Knight Squad is right at home on the Nintendo platform.”
I’m gonna keep an eye on this one. Local multiplayer is my jam, and I’ve got a soft spot for simple games like this one that anybody can hop into and enjoy (Ultimate Chicken Horse says hello). What about you? Do you like what you’re seeing in the trailer, or do you think you might pass on this one?
