Mighty Switch Force Jumps To U.S., Europe And Australia Next Week


Nintendo of America sent out a release schedule for the first quarter of 2012 earlier this week, and it had a lot of 3DS Nintendo eShop games on it. Among the titles listed was WayForward’s Mighty Switch Force.


While “Q1” is generally taken to mean the January – March period, Mighty Switch Force will be released a little sooner than that. WayForward revealed via the game’s Facebook page this morning that the game will be released simultaneously on December 22nd in the U.S., Europe and Australia.



Mighty Switch Force is a puzzle-platformer. You play as a robot space cop, Patricia Wagon, called in by the Galactic Penal Squad to help deal with Space Hooligans. Patricia can alter the world around her pulling objects in and out of the background while jumping around. You can see how this works in the trailer above, or by watching a 3D trailer by searching for the game on the eShop.
