There aren’t a whole lot of options when it comes to multiplayer frisbee games, but Windjammers has definitely become the cult favorite of many gamers. Now the competitive action will be able to go wherever you go with the Windjammers Switch port.
You heard that right. Nintendo Switch owners will finally be able to get in on all of the hype that is Windjammers as soon as it hits the Nintendo eShop. The only question left is when and how much?
Well, as of right now there is still no release date for the title, but it does seem safe to assume that it will retail for $14.99 since that is the price of the title on other platforms.
This is the same version of the game that came to PS4 and Vita last year with a competitive online feature for the first time in the game’s history. The reviews for Windjammers were very positive, and many competitive gamers have sung its praise since the day it was released.
For those of you who are uninitiated to the world of Windjammers, it debuted on Neo Geo arcades back in 1994 and was developed by Data East. When the game first released it went overlooked and neglected for quite some time. However, over the years it has been rediscovered and gained a new found respect from many gamers.
The game can be categorized as a sports title, but think of it more like Pong with frisbees. The objective is to throw the frisbee past your opponent into the goal zone. It sounds deceptively simple, but there is definitely some finesse that separates the pro players from the amateurs.
Needless to say, Windjammers is the perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch’s local multiplayer anywhere attitude. We can’t wait to see Windjammers being played on airplanes, trains, and even Karen’s rooftop.
