Giebelstadt, 20th November 2017 - With the exclusive release of Aces of the Luftwaffe – Squadron on the Nintendo Switch, German games studio HandyGames™ also announces 10 more titles for the platform.

One highlight is Aces of the Luftwaffe – Squadron, a vertically scrolling shoot em‘up completely developed in Germany. Up to four players dive into epic air battles and experience a thrilling story around an American squadron, trying to prevent the invasion of the USA. Spectacular boss battles, an orchestral soundtrack, fully voiced characters and individual skill trees make this game a must-have on the Nintendo Switch.

But that’s not enough! The team from HandyGames™ is hard at work to bring their city-builder hit Townsmen to Nintendo’s newest console. In early 2018 already, fans can have fun settling and trading in HD – whether it be on their big TV screen at home or while travelling. Key features of the development are a completely reworked UI and optimized joypad handling.

The current lineup is especially focusing on Multiplayer action. After the release of Clouds & Sheep 2 and Dynamite Fishing in the second quarter of 2018, the next title arriving on the Nintendo Switch is the action-packed 3D tank game Panzer Panic. Here, up to four players can prove themselves on various battlegrounds in co-op split screen mode or battle against each other in versus mode.

Fans of turn based strategy games can also look forward to four titles from the renowned strategy game series from HandyGames™. Amongst others, 1943 Deadly Desert and 1944 Burning Bridges will come to the console.

There are also two secret projects in the works that will be announced soon.
