TowerFall will launch for Switch via the Nintendo eShop on September 27, developer Matt Makes Games announced.

The Switch version of TowerFall will include both post-release expansions, a new six-player mode, and playable characters Madeline and Badeline from Celeste.

Here is an overview of the game, via Nintedo.com:

The ultimate version of the beloved archery combat/party game, featuring Switch-exclusive six-player battles, guest characters, and more!

TowerFall is the ultimate version of the beloved archery combat / party game, featuring all of the content from Ascension and Dark World, and several Switch-exclusive additions!

Inspired by classics from the golden age of couch multiplayer, TowerFall centers around hilarious, intense versus matches – best played against friends, sitting cross-legged on the floor within punching distance of each other.

The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but hard to master, with a huge amount of gameplay variants, arrow types, power-ups, and levels. And when you need a break from the competition, team up in one-to-four player co-op modes, where you’ll fight off a wide variety of monsters, enemy archers, and bosses.

The Switch version includes several new and exclusive features, including 6-player battles utilizing widescreen levels, new gameplay variants, and guest archers Madeline and her reflection Badeline from fan-favorite platformer Celeste!
