Update: Developer Phase Two Games has announced that its squad-based fantasy adventure RPG Battle Hunters will now be launching on Switch on 5th November, slightly later than the original October plan.

Toby Charlton, Co-Founder of Phase Two Games, has shared the following:

"The old adage that time waits for no man is certainly true in our case, we wanted to synchronize the final submission phase and release efforts and felt we needed a little more time to coordinate that."

Original Article (Tue 25th Aug, 2020 10:30 BST): Independent developer Phase Two has announced that it will be bringing its fantasy RPG Battle Hunters to Nintendo Switch. The game will launch on both Switch and Steam this October. [Now incorrect, see above].

Originally released on mobile, Battle Hunters features a turn-based, real-time combat system which has a focus on strategic command of your heroes. There are all manner of melee and ranged options to choose from, with swords, spells, blades, and blasters all being available on the battlefield.

You form a party of three heroes in total, hoping to find a good balance between each character's own fighting skills. Your heroes can be upgraded or swapped around if you like, and each is said to bring a different range of strengths and weaknesses to battle. Here's an official description:

The Kingdom is in Danger and the oldest and wisest wizard stands alone, the last bastion of hope, struggling to keep a nameless villain at bay. Players will command a team of 3 plucky adventurers, plunging headlong into dungeons, caves, forests and swamps as they heed the call for help from the old one.

A huge variety of beastly adversaries and monstrous villains will impede your quest, hellbent on your party’s destruction as you make your way across different regions of the kingdom. Yet mighty heroes also stand ready to join the fight as your valiant band takes on the forces of darkness. From the Great Forest, inhabited by devious goblins and lumbering trolls, to the high Cliffs of Desolation, where vicious gargoyles and unstoppable stone golems await you.
