Earlier today, Zen Studios announced it would be releasing CastleStorm 2 on the Switch and other platforms on 31st July.
This is a sequel to the tower-defense title CastleStorm, which was re-released on the Switch eShop in August 2018. It mixes tower defense, castle destruction, and hack 'n' slash gameplay with new real-time and turn-based strategy elements.
Here's the official Epic Store description:
The heroes of the Kingdom confront the vile forces of the Undead, and you’ll plot your path to triumph for both sides in two epic story-driven campaigns. But not without some hands-on chaotic carnage and delightful devastation!
CastleStorm II returns to a classic fantasy land of medieval madness, rife with heroic knights, enchanting sorceresses, glorious griffins…and sheep. But a new threat rises – literally…as in, from the grave. Walking corpses. Headless horsemen. ZOMBIE sheep. All-around nasty necromancy. You get the picture.
Build an entire empire through gameplay that engages your inner hardcore strategist…then command – even CONTROL – your soldiers en route to triumph!
Did you play the original game? Will you be downloading the sequel on release? Tell us below.
@Liam_Doolan Here's another game announced by Nintendo 8 hours ago, "Spellbreak":
I love Monty Python. Grew up watching the stuff.
But that trailer made me want to bury my phone and never find it again.
I finished the first Castlestorm on Wiiu a while back, and it was quite fun! Interested in this, but that trailer was awful. I despise trailers that try too hard. Just show your game and what's it going to be about, that's it. You don't need to go the extra mile and try to be funny. We're not two years old for goodness sake.
Here's hoping this will lead to a Castlestorm 2 table for Pinball FX 3
Looks someone more was awake in the time the news was caming
@MsJubilee I loved castlestorm, but yeah, that trailer was annoying. I am sure I will buy the game at some point, but that trailer discouraged me haha.
The Monty Python style were used in Rock of Ages 2 and 3 too.
Loved the first one. Will buy unless it reviews horribly.
@Liam_Doolan Probably above your pay grade - maybe get Ant on the line - but the profile box on the upper right - like you dont' know where it is - is for the 1st game. I know this is a sequel but it should probably get it's own profile box and not use the same as the first game.
Anyway, only played the demo of the first, always wanted to play more but never got around to it, so I'll keep an eye on the sequel and see if it's an improvement. Also look to see if the original $15 price is $30 for the sequel, that's the way things seem to work these days w/ indie games.
@rjejr I've created a game page for it now.
The first one was great, absolutely loved it. This trailer is meh but hopefully the game is good.
@Liam_Doolan Oh thanks. Got the TBA price placeholder and everything, well done.
The dude in the thumbnail looks like The Baz, what with the spiked shoulder pads, blonde hair and completely white eyes.
