Publisher Dispatch Games announced that Penguin Wars, which was scheduled to release on the 15th of May, has been delayed to mid-to-end June. To make up for the delay, the publisher revealed a Limited Launch Edition for the game.
Limited to 5,000 copies, the Launch Edition contains a PC-based digital download code for the complete video game soundtrack. The Switch version also includes a physical, threaded, heat-cut character patch of Riley. The Limited Launch Edition is available to pre-order exclusively at the Dispatch Games online store for $39.99.
In Penguin Wars the classic rule of using 10 balls to throw at each other is still the core of the game. However, now you can evolve your characters in Story Mode and use those suped up characters in both local and online game play against your friends. This release also introduces multiple sets of new rules, which new and seasoned gamers can both enjoy. Music from the original version released in 1985 has been remixed and updated by notable musicians from Japan, which will make you want to listen to the music while you’re out for a run or dance to on a Friday night with the family.
Penguin Wars will be available for PS4, XBox One and Nintendo Switch.
