Worms Rumble, the 32-player cross-platform arena battler that launched on PlayStation and PC towards the end of last year, is coming to Nintendo Switch.
The announcement comes from new comments shared by Team17 CEO, Debbie Bestwick MBE, who has called 2021 a “very exciting and busy year” for the company (thanks, Gematsu). Worms Rumble will, of course, be joining Overcooked! All You Can Eat in Switch’s 2021 library, another game that was recently announced to be making the jump to Nintendo’s console.
Rumble isn’t your typical Worms experience, ditching the series’ tried and trusted turn-based strategy for real-time, battle royale-style gameplay. Our friends over at Push Square called it a “simple but successful” spin-off in their review, praising it for being “fun and frantic enough to keep you hooked.”
It hit PlayStation’s PS Plus service as soon as it launched in December, meaning that – should its cross-platform play extend to Switch – there should already be a pretty sizable player base to fight against. No specific release date has been revealed just yet, but we’ll make sure to update you when we learn more.
