Wargroove, a turn-based strategy game from developer Chucklefish, is hitting Switch, Xbox, and PC on February 1. Players will be able to choose a commander and wage war on battling factions, using their “groove” to strategically sway the fight in their favor.
Highlighted in today’s Nintendo’s Indie Showcase, Wargroove aims to offer a modern take on popular handheld strategy game series, Advance Wars.
Chucklefish set out to create Wargroove after noticing nothing in the current console space filled the gap that the Advance Wars franchise left behind.
With Wargroove, Chucklefish “aims to recreate the charm and accessibility of the titles that inspired it whilst bringing modern technology into the formula.” Players can look forward to “high resolution pixel art, robust online play and deep modding capability, ultimately creating the most complete experience for Advance Wars and TBS fans.”
Players will also be able to design and share online their very own maps, cut-scenes and campaign stories with easy-to-use editors and in-depth customization tools.
Wargroove launches on February 1st on PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, priced at $19.99. A Playstation 4 version will be arriving soon after.
