Last year, around the time of E3, a new Ubisoft IP known as Roller Champions was leaked ahead of its official reveal. Pro Controller assets were also discovered, seemingly confirming the free-to-play team-based sports game for Switch.
Now, many months on, a Ubisoft press release has confirmed the game is indeed coming to Nintendo's hybrid platform.
Roller Champions is in development for Windows PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and mobile.
This was attached to the news that there'll be a closed alpha taking place on PC (via UPlay) from the 11th - 23rd March. The game is a development collaboration between Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft Winnipeg, and Ubisoft Pune and is expected to launch in 2020.
Here's a description:
Roller Champions is a new sports sensation delivering exhilarating and fast-paced team PvP gameplay – on wheels. Two teams of three players are pitted against each other in arenas around the world, and players are cheered on by crowds of roaring fans as they acquire the ball, pass it to teammates and dodge and tackle opponents to score a goal in the illuminated hoop that appears above the rink.
