Last year, the strategy game This is the Police was ported to the Switch with overwhelmingly positive reception from fans and critics alike. If you’re looking for even more gritty action, you’re in luck. Developer Weappy Studio and THQ Nordic have announced that a sequel is on its way later this year. This is the Police 2: Cold-Blooded Attitude moves players from the busy inner cities of the first game to a remote border town in the north.

Check out the debut trailer:


No word yet on an official launch date other than sometime in 2018, but stay tuned to Nintendo Wire for more details as they become available. In the meantime, check out the press release for even more information:

Welcome to Sharpwood, a remote border town in the north. It’s a rough, cold place, where inhabitants know their neighbors by name and faithfully keep to their traditions, no matter how barbaric those traditions might be. Smugglers, gangs and screaming populists have made this town their home. Despair grows like a cancer, hand in hand with violence.

Just like the first game, This Is the Police 2 is a mixture of adventure and management genres, and this time it enjoys further unexpected mechanics that will strengthen both the strategic and tactical parts of the game. It won’t be enough just managing the equipment of your policemen and keeping in mind their individual skills. Every challenge requires the player’s direct participation, and the outcomes will depend on every decision you make. Now your subordinates aren’t just some resource; they are living people with their own strengths, weaknesses, fears and prejudices, and you’ll have to reckon with all these things in order to survive.
