If you're looking for something new and a little different on Switch, you might want to take a look at Bossgard which launches on Nintendo's platform today.

Bossgard is a party-style, asymmetrical multiplayer game which has one player taking on the role of a big, bad boss. The boss player will face off against all other players who will team up as Vikings, each with special abilities, kicking off hectic battles of 1v2 right up to 1v5.

You can choose from a variety of boss characters, with options ranging from a mighty fortress to a particularly angry looking slice of bread, and the Viking players will need to focus on teamwork to take the boss player down. Vikings can heal, protect, and even give buffs to their teammates, and they can also release minions and lay down turrets to deal extra damage.

Make sure to check out the trailer above if you haven't already, as well as these screenshots:

You'll find the game waiting for you on the Switch eShop today priced at $19.99 / £16.99. In Europe, the game's actually discounted to £12.99 until 22nd July, at which point it will return to full price.

It's not often you get the chance to take control of a boss, rather than trying to defeat one, huh? Liking the sound of this? Let us know if you'll be downloading this one in the comments.
