Publisher Accelerate Games and developer Signal Studios have announced that Toy Soldiers HD will launch in August 2021 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and it will be “overhauled, upgraded, and better than ever.” A bit more specifically, it will feature improved single-player and multiplayer gameplay, an improved camera and sound, all previously released DLC, and some new levels. A Toy Soldiers HD announcement trailer shows you what to expect.
Toy Soldiers was a hit on Xbox Live Arcade many moons ago, and Accelerate Games and Signal Studios hope a new generation will discover and enjoy this HD re-release on Switch and other platforms. It is an action strategy game with World War I toys that are duking it out in Europe. Accelerate further describes what makes the game unique:
Like many tower defense games, you strategically build your defenses while plotting your counter offensives. But unlike other tower defense games, Toy Soldiers HD gives you the ability to experience the battle from both top-down perspective and third-person perspective. Watch the action unfold or jump feet first into the boots of an infantryman and race across the battlefield dodging artillery while using a flamethrower to burn your enemies to a crisp. Mount your horse and charge the enemy head on with your cavalry. Pilot bombers and drop shells that pockmark the field below or strafe your opponent using biplanes. Go hands-on howitzers and mow down the enemy.
Toy Soldiers HD was first announced for Nintendo Switch last year, along with the announcement of new title Toy Soldiers 2: Finest Hour. A high-definition port of Toy Soldiers: Cold War is in the works as well.
