Japanese developer SUNSOFT has announced a Nintendo Switch port for Ikki Unite, their reimagined version of the classic arcade action game.
Ikki Unite is coming to Nintendo Switch sometime later in 2023 for Japan and sometime in early 2024, worldwide.
The 16-player action game has been available for Windows PC, and the Switch port will have crossplay with PC players.
Here’s a rundown on the previously announced game:
“You can’t riot with just one or two people!” The legendary “bad game” that once had people scoffing is back, and this time it’s time to unite!
It’s the autumn harvest, a time to rejoice in the fruits of labor, but a swarm of locusts ravage the land! The village is in trouble, and yet the collectors still demand taxes…
So let’s start a rebellion and get our rice back, and protect our village! This time we aren’t alone! It’s time to “Ikki Unite” with up to 16 people!
- It’s the MOST CASUAL of ONLINE COOP games with simple controls and satisfying gameplay!
- Cooperate and dodge bullets to defeat the enemies, and collect items.
- Head towards the Daikan Yashiki!
- This is roguelike action…but united!
