Developer Robotality and Publisher Chucklefish has announced that Pathway, their turn-based strategy game about fighting Nazis, is coming to the Nintendo Switch this May.
Pathway is a turn-based strategy game that launched way back in 2019. Garnering 74% positive reviews on Steam, a 7/10 from IGN and a 9/10 from TechRaptor, Pathway went on to receive countless updates from the developer. Now that it is “the best and most complete version”, according to the developer, Robotality and Chucklefish are bringing the title to the Nintendo Switch. Stefan Bachmann, the Game Designer and Coder at Robotality, spoke about how they had always wanted to bring Pathway to the Nintendo Switch, and how it is the perfect fit for the console.
“We’re super excited to be bringing Pathway to the Switch […] From day one we thought the game would be a perfect fit for the console. It took a lot of work to bring the game’s real-time lighting effects and pixel art to Switch, but we’re incredibly pleased with the results. In our opinion, this is now the best and most complete version of Pathway with all the post-release updates, so there’s no better time to jump in!”Stefan Bachmann ~ Robotality
