Coming from the heels of releasing Ironcast next week, Ripstone announced today its plans to publish Chess Ultra for the Nintendo Switch. The publisher also released a new trailer for the game, which you can watch above.
Chess Ultra launched earlier this summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC & VR, and was positively received by chess enthusiasts and new players alike. “The team here at Ripstone are delighted to bring Chess Ultra to Nintendo Switch, it gives players a completely different, intuitive way to play the game. There’s a lot of lifelong Nintendo fans in the studio, and we love being able to support the console” states Matt Southern, Head of Development at Ripstone. The game includes stunning environments and chess sets, 10 Grandmaster approved AI levels, local and online multiplayer with ELO rankings, as well as over 80 chess puzzles to solve.
While the game does not have a concrete release date yet, it will be released within this year for the Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
