Chucklefish’s upcoming Nintendo Switch indie Wargroove is already proving quite exciting for fans of Advance Wars and Fire Emblem, with it featuring the saturated art style of the former and the medieval setting of the latter.

Now the studio has begun a new development blog over on the official Wargroove site, with the first part focusing on one of the key Commanders – Queen Mercia. These will act as your avatar during play and also be present on battlefields. They are powerful units, but if they fall in combat you lose the battle.

As the newly appointed Queen of the Cherrystone Kingdom, Mercia is more comfortable on the battlefield than dealing with diplomacy. That isn’t to say she’s bloodthirsty – it’s noted that she is energetic and friendly; she’d just carve you in two with her greatsword if given a reason.

Wargroove will launch later this year.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
