It wouldn't be April Fools without a few surprises, and thankfully, Landfall Games isn't about to trick us here. Physics-based fighter Stick Fight: The Game is getting a surprise launch today on Nintendo Switch.
Previously released on PC, Mac and mobiles in 2017, this one is strictly a co-op experience, allowing for 2-4 players between local and online multiplayer. It's one of Landfall's earlier projects – you might better know it for Totally Accurate Battle Simulator – and Stick Fight's Switch release is a straight port.
At the time of writing, an eShop page wasn't live, so we don't have pricing details, but Landfall Games has previously offered this outline on the Steam page:
Stick Fight is a physics-based couch/online fighting game where you battle it out as the iconic stick figures from the golden age of the internet. Fight it out against your friends or find random sticks from around the world!
* 2 to 4 PLAYERS in either Local or Online Multiplayer (NO SINGLE PLAYER MODE)
* Physics-Based Combat System
* 100 Highly Interactive Levels
* Level editor
* Over 23,000 community made levels
* Lots of weapons!
* Procedural Animations using the system from Totally Accurate Battle Simulator
It's worth noting Landfall has a history with April Fools releases, so Stick Fight: The Game's timing is no coincidence here. It wasn't widely reviewed previously, but – out of 57,000 user reviews – holds a "very positive" rating on Steam, so that certainly bodes well.
