Today, Warhorse Studios announced its collaboration with Koch Media and Saber Interactive to release its acclaimed action-RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance to the Nintendo Switch soon. Born out of a delightful error in retail news, feedback for a Switch version was so enormously positive that the developers have made it a point to create this port alongside an announcement of a new wing publishing label from Koch Media.
Koch Media and Warhorse Studios are happy to announce the joining of Warhorse Studios to the newly created Prime Matter label of Koch Media. The successful Czech game developer sold nearly 4 million copies of Kingdom Come: Deliverance on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to date, and is stepping into the new Prime Matter label as an established legacy studio of Koch Media. To celebrate, Warhorse Studios and Koch Media today announce the release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance on the Nintendo Switch.
Regarding the move to Prime Matter:
“We have come a long way from founding Warhorse Studios in 2011 to the successful release of Kingdom Come: Deliverance in 2018,” said Tobias Stolz-Zwilling, PR Manager at Warhorse Studios. “As Koch Media supported us at the start, we are now happy to return the favor and support the newly established Prime Matter label as one of its legacy partners.”
“Warhorse Studios quickly established themselves as valuable addition to the Koch Media family. Adding Warhorse Studios to our new premium label not only adds promising future titles but also a lot of talent and experience.” – Mario Gerhold, Global Brand And Marketing Director at Koch Media.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance for Nintendo Switch was born out of a “happy mistake.” At the end of 2020, the Kingdom Come: Deliverance Royal Edition was announced for the PlayStation 4 in Japan. Due to a clerical error, the game was also listed for the Nintendo Switch, which at that time was not in the plans. The ‘mistake’ was fixed right away, but the information spread. However, the overwhelming feedback was eye-opening and an integral part in decision making later. Sabre Interactive, also a legacy studio of Koch Media, has proven on multiple occasions that they are the right partners for this endeavor to make the unthinkable thinkable, and were tasked with bringing Kingdom Come: Deliverance to the Nintendo Switch.
“It is amazing to see how much involvement and influence gamers worldwide can have on game development. The overwhelming feedback and fan reaction made us reconsider our opportunities and made us sit down with Sabre Interactive, who is the perfect candidate for this ambitious undertaking,” said Tobias Stolz-Zwilling, PR Manager at Warhorse Studios.
