Los Angeles-based developer Messhof Games has announced Nidhogg 2 will be arriving on the Switch eShop later this month on 22nd November. The game was first announced for Nintendo's new platform back in March this year during a Nindies Nintendo Direct showcase.

Although the original game never graced Nintendo hardware, the sequel is more of the same - requiring two players to duel and slaughter each other with a variety of weapons across multiple stages in a sort of reverse tug-of-war game. Both players must strive to be the "glorious sacrifice" to the wurm at the other end of the screen. You can take on friends in local and online multiplayer or go up against A.I. There's also an 8-player tournament mode to find out who is truly the best.

To celebrate the release date announcement for Switch, Messhof has released a funky trailer. Take a look above and tell us below if you're at all interested in downloading this when it is released.
