It’s been almost 7 years since I reviewed Temple Gates Games’ Cannon Brawl, a Worms-like that adds a light real time strategy layer with resourcing and building construction. Since it was released in 2014 on Steam for Windows, macOS, and Linux, Cannon Brawl has also come to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and now Temple Gates Games and Blitworks are bringing Cannon Brawl to the Nintendo Switch eShop on April 14th for $10.
I’m playing a pre-release version of the game and it is perfect for the Switch. The cannons are just as fun to fire, and the writing is still funny. The campaign is rewarding and teaches players one thing at a time in a fun way before unlocking new characters or other cannon types and upgrades but you can still just jump right into an AI battle or multiplayer. Using two Joy-Cons for single-Switch multiplayer works great. I highly recommend checking out Cannon Brawl on the Switch or revisiting it on any of the other platforms it is on.
