Sine Mora EX & Battle Chasers: Nightwar are Coming to the Switch!
Written By: Kenneth Seward Jr.
Nintendo announced a lot of titles on their recent Direct Video, many of which were worth exploring further. Two of those titles come by way of THQ Nordic…
The first game is Sine Mora EX, a shoot’em up developed by Grasshopper and Digital Reality. We had the pleasure of reviewing this title back when it released on the Xbox 360 (and again on the Vita). It provided a challenging, yet enthralling gameplay, an interesting concept centered on time manipulation and an assortment of leaderboards – for the “highscore” chasers out there. This EX version will feature local co-op, three new versus modes, improved rending, new challenge levels, full English voice overs, and 16:9 aspect ratio. Basically, it’ll be the best version available.
Sine Mora EX will be released on the Switch, alongside the PS4 and Xbox One, this summer. The second title that was mentioned was Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Based on the Battle Chasers comic series, Nightwar is a turn-based RPG inspired by oldschool JRPG titles. It looks great and seems like it’ll be entertaining; there are some modern elements that’ll make it stand out. RPG fans should take note. Like Sine Mora EX, Battle Chasers: Nightwar will be headed to multiple platforms sometime this summer/autumn.
“We are extremely excited to be amongst the first to bring third-party games to this stellar and innovative platform. We feel like both, Sine Mora EX and Battle Chasers: Nightwar, are perfect fits for Nintendo Switch in terms of gameplay, style and looks." says Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic. "We are already looking forward to enjoying these games on our Switch as well!”
Sine Mora and Battle Chasers seem like two titles gamers should look out for. Especially if they own a Switch, given its ability to be used as a handheld!
