Worldwalker Games, the studio behind the procedurally-generated RPG hit Wildermyth, has confirmed that the game will be making its way to Nintendo Switch in the future.
News of the port was announced by Worldwalker Games founder Nate Austin during an appearance on Fanbyte’s Thanks for the Knowledge podcast. While the episode won’t officially be released until December 19, the outlet confirmed the announcement in a recent article.
Despite the reveal, fans should note that there may still be some wait before they see Wildermyth arrive on the Switch. In its current state, the game is built in Java – a coding base that isn’t supported by Nintendo’s handheld in any way. Due to this, Fanbyte reports that Austin has said that the porting process to move the game to Switch will take “at least a year.”
Despite a lengthy wait for Switch fans, there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that it’ll be a popular pick when it finally launches on the Switch. Since its initial launch on Steam in June, Wildermyth has garnered an overwhelmingly positive review score on the platform, with 95% of users reviewing the game recommending it to others.
Wildermyth is a character-driven, procedurally-generated tactical RPG where your in-game decisions carry weighty consequences and drive your characters forward. Throughout your time with Wildermyth, you’ll lead a band of heroes as they grow from reluctant common folk into unique, legendary fighters. Along your journey, you’ll unravel mysteries, discover more about your characters’ history and personalities, and enter into a wide array of combat situations with strange monsters across a range of locations.
Upon release, IGN reviewed Wildermyth and awarded it a 9/10. In our verdict for the game, we wrote: “The magic of Wildermyth is that it loves stories so much that it builds its entire structure, from graphical style to prose to combat to campaign structure, around its characters becoming legends.”
“It then cements those ideas in place with a Legacy system that turns those legendary characters into stories again, weaving design and storytelling together throughout. Wildermyth gives the impression of being charmingly ramshackle, but surprisingly flexible and tight under the hood, which all adds up to a truly special experience.”
