Mighty Switch Force Isn’t Over Yet Say WayForward Technologies

While their focus is on Shantae for the moment, the Mighty Switch Force series isn’t over yet, according to WayForward Technologies. In an “Ask Me Anything” fan Q&A on Reddit, staff from the studio addressed a couple of questions regarding the series.


When asked if WayForward would develop another Might Switch Force game in the future, with more of a focus on protagonist Patricia Wagon’s story, WayForward’s Matt Bozon replied, “Persoanally I’d love to. She was originally supposed to transform into vehicles.”


He continued, “It would be pretty cool to bring back the ideas that were too grand for a puzzle game. Getting into the robot… stuff like that is just the tip of the robotic iceberg if it were a full fleged [sic] action game.”


In reply to a similar question later in the Q&A, Bozon reiterated, “I could see us doing it. There’s no shortage of ideas or enthusiasm.”


While no new Mighty Switch Force games appear to be in development at the moment, WayForward are remaking Mighty Switch Force 2 for the Wii U with a different art style.

  • Speaking of Shantae, as of now they’re 6K from being funded.


    I just hope they get some of the stretches taken care of…

      Im having trouble choosing which system i want the game on.i just bought a wii u and im getting a ps4 at launch,but it would be nice and portable on vita.

    Wayforward should make a 2D Metroid game.

      That should wash the taste of Other M out of all our collective mouths.

    A full fledged MSF action game? Shantae being 6k from being funded?
    Life is good sometimes

    I enjoy Mighty Switch Force as a quirky puzzle-platforming game with action elements but I would really love to see this as a 2D action game like Metal Slug.

    It’s really nice to see Wayforward getting more recognition these days. I so love to see a new Contra game from them so I hope Konami hire them again.

    Also, I like how MSF is now as a quirky puzzle-platforming-action game but something that’s more action-focused with Patty piloting her mech would be pretty cool.

    Weird. My previous post didn’t load so I made a longer post.

    I’ve been hoping they’d announce a full Mighty Switch Force action-game since I got to the end of the first. Lots of potential in the IP.

    Huh. Maybe Patty can take a lesson or two from Beck, if she wants to transform into other vehicle-forms, now that the two teams are so tight…
    Also, speaking of kickstarters: Shantae just got funded!

  • Hinataharem

    She will now be featured as a medic

    I was never really familiar with WayForward until I tried MSF. It lead me to check out Shatae as well. I would love for them to continue with both series :)
