The intense dodging game Swordship was announced for Switch back in April 2022, and at that time we heard the game would release sometime in September 2022. Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case.
Thunderful and Digital Kingdom have now announced that Swordship won’t see release until sometime in December 2022. No reason was given for the game’s delay, so any information detailing why the game is missing the original September 2022 release date is pure speculation. At least we have a new trailer to enjoy, which you can see above.
Swordship is set in an unforgiving post-apocalyptic world where the consequences of global warming have forced the vast majority of humanity to take refuge in three gigantic underwater cities. The megacities exchange millions of containers loaded with goods every day while those on the outside scrape what they can together in order to survive. You play as one of the small number of inhabitants prepared to steal those precious containers to deliver vital supplies to those that have been banished to the outside.
Players are given the freedom of choice in selecting from a number of different Swordship variants, each coming with its own unique active power, offering the opportunity to experiment with a variety of approaches to overcome challenging and dangerous levels. Players can further experiment with their play style by choosing between risking it all and banking stolen containers for massive score boosts or, playing it safe for passive upgrades and extra ships that will fit your own unique style.
