Swords, Soldiers and Shawarmageddon
Play through a 10 hour single-player campaign which follows Viking chief Redbeard as he journeys through tundras, forests, deserts and even the pits of the netherworld itself to prevent the imminent Shawarmageddon! You’ll fight with and against each of the three factions – and ever faction has access to a distinct roster of fantastical troops, magical spells and structures, with over 50 units to choose from. From Viking axe-throwers, carpet-riding Persians, and cunning Demons to skeleton-summoning crypts and polymorphic spells that turn units into harmless sheep, there is a ton of variety!
Players can also fight their friends or other warlords around the world in online multiplayer or split-screen mode on a single Nintendo Switch™! It’s even possible to test strategies in skirmishes against the AI while waiting to be matched with an online opponent – when an opponent is found, the skirmish game will be paused while the battle is played out. Once the online match has concluded, you’ll be returned to where you left off. Pick one of the three armies to do battle with, or build a new one with the Custom Army mode, which allows you to mix and match units from any of the factions to create a crazy composition!! There are also numerous mini-games to enjoy while queuing.
Back and Better!
In 2009 Swords and Soldiers 2 was exclusively released for Wii U™ to a positive reception, before coming in an enhanced form to the Nintendo Switch™. Ronimo Producer Robin Meijer said “It’s great to be bringing Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon back to the Nintendo ecosystem where it started life, now bigger and better than ever. We hope our Nintendo fans are looking forward to some multiplayer mayhem!”.
Expect online and split-screen multiplayer, and the brand new ability to build a custom army for skirmish and multiplayer games! Mix and match units, spells and structures from all three factions into the ultimate army… or a messy mishmash. Either way, it’s sure to be great fun!
Together with development studio Two Tribes, Ronimo Games released Swords & Soldiers as a surprise in January for all fans of the series. If you own either game, you can enjoy a loyalty discount of when you buy the other game. Owners of the first game can get 20% off Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon, as well as the other way round!
Ronimo is especially grateful to all of their Kickstarter backers and long term fans who have been hoping for a Nintendo Switch™ version since the original release on Wii U™!
