Indie game publisher Wired Productions has announced that Tiny Troopers Joint Ops XL is heading to the Switch eShop in time for the Holiday season.

The game is a twin-stick shooter which sees the player control 'tiny troopers' battling evil adversaries from around the world, with a collection of weapons at your disposal. It was originally released back in 2014 on other consoles but this fancy, jazzed-up 'XL' version will be exclusive to the Switch. You can check out a trailer for this new edition of the game, as well as some extra juicy details, below.

• Relive the original campaigns from Tiny Troopers & Tiny Troopers 2: Spec Ops with over 60 action-packed missions
• Brainsssssss! Fight for your life through 8 Zombie Campaign missions, 4 fast paced undead wave maps & zombie survival mode
• Push your miniature militia to the edge with Ultra-Hardcore difficulty

This new, updated version promises to be "bigger than ever" and could be a perfect match for the Switch; the portability of the console matches the scale of the game's maps (and miniature characters) very nicely indeed. The game is said to make use of the Switch's touchscreen, too, which could make the Handheld play-style option even more appealing.
