Should be with us by the end of Q2

Mighty Switch Force has been a successful title for WayForward Technologies. The 2D platformer has been in the 3DS eShop since 2011, and recently an updated HD version came out on the Wii U eShop in the form of Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition.

In an interview with Destructoid, director at WayForward Austin Ivansmith announced that Mighty Switch Force would be getting a sequel — and it'll be in the 3DS eShop in the first or second quarter of this year.

Patricia Wagon is set to feature, though apparently she won't be doing her usual police work — maybe she's had a career change?

In other WayForward news, the developer has confirmed via Twitter that Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition will soon be released on the Wii U eShop in Australia.
