When we asked to see your #OnlyOnSwitch moments earlier this year, we received a huge range of images showing the freedom to play anytime, anywhere, with anyone that Nintendo Switch offers.

Stikbold DELUXE coming to Nintendo Switch eShop on December 29

Game Swing are excited to announce that their highly acclaimed dodgebrawler, Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure will soon be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop in an exclusive DELUXE edition.

“It’s bright, colorful, silly, funny, and built on a simple yet solid set of mechanics that will keep you playing match after match.”  Eddie Inzauto – gamernode.com
“It’s a shit ton of good old-fashioned couch co-op fun” Jonathan Beach – VICE Gaming

It’s hard to think of a company that has done more for local multiplayer and this type of social gameplay experience than Nintendo, so naturally launching on a Nintendo platform was always at the top of the wish list.

When the Nintendo Switch was announced, Game Swing finally got the opportunity to self-publish and make a version specifically for this audience.

“This is the first time we self-publish and it’s been a great experience. We’ve been able to make exactly the tweaks and improvements we felt was right for the system, and Nintendo have been so great to work with. We are very happy with the DELUXE edition of Stikbold! and think it will fit perfectly on Nintendo eShop” Martin Petersen – CEO of Game Swing

The DELUXE edition is exclusive to Nintendo Switch and introduces improvements to make those game parties even better.

More players, more mayhem – max players increased from 4 to 6
Improved accessibility – controls reworked for the Joy-Con
Wheel of Rumpus – A new wacky game mode inspired by 70’s game shows. Introduces new fun with quirky cosmetic rewards and hilariously unfair madness.

Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure DELUXE is available on Nintendo eShop and launches with a limited 20% discount the first 14 days.

Dec 29 2017 (EU) – retail price €19.99
