Is King's Bounty 2 Coming to the Switch?

Yes, King's Bounty 2 will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch this year. Currently, the game has a scheduled release date of Aug. 24. Alongside the Nintendo Switch release, King's Bounty 2 will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

King's Bounty 2 is a sequel to the critically-acclaimed King's Bounty, released all the way back in 1990. Just like the original, the sequel is a turn-based strategy game that places players in the role of a king, who must protect his kingdom and its people at all costs. According to the game's Nintendo eShop page, players will "build armies of different creatures who will fight with you throughout the majority of your adventure," and, "encounter diverse terrain types, directly impacting battlefield tactics. Every battle unique in its own way."

The King's Bounty 2 news comes alongside other potential additions to the Nintendo Switch, like rumors about Tribes of Midgard arriving on the platform, as well as new updates for the Nintendo Switch mainstay Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
