While once previously slated for PC and PlayStation 4 only, indie developer GUTS Department has revealed the long-gestating 2D genre mashup that is Aegis Defenders will be launching on Nintendo Switch as well, arriving on 6th February alongside the other versions of the game.

Originally Kickstarted in 2014, the game has been thoroughly updated over the years through fan feedback and testing, so the version we're getting on Switch will be (we hope) the best possible incarnation. The game - which mixes exploration, tower building and defense in a cute 16-bit art style - will also support split Joy-Con support so you and a friend can make the most of drop in/drop out co-op.

So we're getting another modern take on retro, and we don't have to wait weeks or months after other versions to play. Let us know what you think and whether or not you'll be picking up Aegis Defenders next month.
