In the new trailer, gameplay is shown that features tropical pirates facing off against soldiers in turn-based battles. No release window beyond 2023 is given, but the game can be wishlisted now on PCs via Steam.
The trailer begins with an introduction to a new setting, the Saffron Isles in the country of Aurania. This pirate-themed location is home to Nadia, a female pirate who fights with a flame thrower. Nadia then mentions that strange invaders have been spotted in the area recently. To fight back, old friends also raised armies and created new grooves to fight against their foes.

Wargroove 2 will feature a variety of new features to set it apart from its predecessor. There will be new commanders and multitiered groove system battles. There are also five new unit types. All units can also be powered up by picking up new items.
Details about campaigns and original options came up. There will be three new campaigns. Beyond the main story, a new rogue-like mode known as Conquest will appear. The map editor will return and features the ability to make your own campaign and cut scenes as well.
The original Wargroove released in 2019 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Featuring gameplay inspired by the Nintendo Wars series, players can take on the role of one of 15 commanding officers, each with their own stats and abilities. You then take your army and fight against an enemy across a tile-based map in both single and multiplayer modes.
Wargroove 2 will come to the Nintendo Switch and PC in 2023.
