Worms Rumble released late last year for PC and PlayStation platforms, with a vague “2021” release window set for the Switch and Xbox versions of the game. During today’s E3 Nintendo Direct, this arena-combat spinoff for the classic tactical franchise finally got an official Switch release date, and it’s arriving in just over a week!

 

 

“Worms Rumble is Worms like you’ve never played it before, with intense, real-time, arena-based 32 player cross-platform combat. Get ready for Deathmatch and Last Worm Standing modes where you’re only ever a Holy Hand Grenade away from death!

Use a variety of fan-favourite weapons like the Bazooka, Shotgun and Sheep Launcher plus all-new additions to the armoury to bring the pain to your invertebrate opponents as you climb the ranks. Customise your worm, take part in challenges and seasonal events and experiment with new ways to play in The Lab. This is Worms, reinvented.”

 

Worms Rumble will wriggle onto the Nintendo Switch eShop on Wednesday, June 23rd, and is available to pre-order now at a discounted price of $11.24 until June 22nd, at which point the game will squirm back up to its full price of $14.99.
