Following on from Shiro Games’ announcement last week, Merge today announced it will be releasing the Viking strategy game Northgard as a physical retail version for Nintendo Switch.
Scheduled for retail release in September, Northgard will be available in European stores on September 27 and US stores on September 24, 2019. The Nintendo Switch version will be priced at $34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99.
Northgard is a strategy game deeply ingrained with Norse mythology. Players take control of their chosen Viking clan to explore and settle new territories which are filled with untold riches and deadly magical foes, from dire wolves and undead warriors, to giants and great dragons. In order to bring fame to their clan and write history, players will have to carefully manage their resources, trade with rival clans, befriend or defeat mythical creatures, brave the harshest winters and conquer unforgiving lands.
Northgard will feature all the content found in the original PC version including the major Ragnarok and Relics updates: six clans, a lengthy campaign, cooperative and competitive online play across various maps including the apocalyptic-themed Ragnarok, ranked play and much more. The devs have also ensured that playing using the controller will be effortless, with many tweaks and a completely revamped user interface.
