Stardew Valley and Wargroove join the Switch eShop in Latin America

Two very welcome additions

The Latin American Switch eShop is very, very light on games. There's mostly first-party titles, and a small smattering of third party games. While there's still a long way to go for parity, the Switch eShop in Latin America has gotten two big games today. Both Stardew Valley and Wargroove are now available!

Chucklefish explains how Wargroove ended up including a level editor

One of the 'best decisions' they made, according to the team

One of Wargroove's best features its its level editor. This lets fans create maps with the same tools the devs used, and in turn, provides near limitless content for players to check out. Wondering how the decision to include a level editor came about? Chucklefish tech director Rodrigo Monteiro explains in a Gamasutra interview.

I think that quite early into development of the game we decided we needed some kind of tool to just make our own maps and we thought ah, maybe it’s gonna be nice if it’s inside the game itself.

So we made a simple map editor but then at some point we decided wouldn’t it be cool to just give it to the community and give them the full power, but I think that in doing that it allowed us to make tools so powerful that it allowed us to make those very diverse game modes ourselves quite easily because none of the game logic, rather none of the mission logic is scripted or anything. It’s all made by content creators because we wanted the users to be able to do the same. It became very easy for us to make all of these kind of varieties.

I think it’s probably one of the best decisions we’ve made in this project.

Wargroove - Quality of Life 1.2.0 Patch due out tomorrow


Wargroove is getting updated to Version 1.2.0 tomorrow, and it's a Quality of Life update that brings a ton of tweaks with it. Check out the full announcement below!

Shortly after launch Tiy mentioned in a blog post that we were working on a quality of life patch, combining some community feedback we received and adjustments we wanted to make. Well good news –Wargroove Patch 1.2.0 is out this Wednesday 6th March (tomorrow!) at 13.00 GMT / 14.00 CET / 05.00 PST / 08.00 EST across PC, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

A quick PSA, in-progress online matches will be incompatible at the time the patch goes live, so we’d recommend not starting any strategic showdowns around then! You may also find yourself needing to update to the latest version in order to access the game’s online features after the patch, so do make sure you’re up to date if you have any issues.

Following the patch going live, if you do by chance find any bugs please do report them to the support section in the Wargroove Forums. If you’d like to chat to the developers and share your thoughts, you can also find us lurking in the Wargroove Discord server!

Check below for the full patch notes:

Checkpoint system:

While playing in campaign mode, you can set a checkpoint in a mission
If you are defeated, you can retry from the checkpoint
You can set a checkpoint whenever you want, but you can only have one active at a time (the previous gets overwritten)

Difficulty system overhaul:

Five difficulty presets, Story, Easy, Medium, Hard (Default) and Custom
Hard difficulty is the default, and is the standard rules of the game. It’s the only mode where you can obtain S-ranks
Medium difficulty is a bit easier and still lets you obtain up to 3 stars
Easy limits you at 2 stars
Story limits you at 1 star, and is VERY easy


You can now add CPU players to online games
There’s now a message clarifying that you must join a match if you don’t have any in progress
A number of fixes to Quick Play timers

Wargroove team shares another round of their top picks for community-created maps

1. Advance Wars Mission 1: It’s War by Fabian – Code: DP8VZ9ZU

It was bound to happen, wasn’t it? Fabian’s map is a fantastic recreation of the first introductory mission from Advance Wars’ Campaign mode. A fair warning though – although this opening map may have been fairly easy in Advance Wars, this version of the map in Wargroove can certainly be a challenge! Make sure to make good and regular use of your Alchemist’s healing powers in order to cut your way through Felheim’s forces.

The above map is just one example of the many, many community-created maps for Wargroove. Chucklefish has shared a second round-up of community maps that they really enjoy, which you can find right here.
