Earlier today, Nintendo unveiled its lineup for San Diego Comic-Con 2017. It includes many notable upcoming Nintendo Switch and 3DS titles such as Super Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Hey! Pikmin, and Miitopia. One title that may have slipped through the cracks for many with this announcement is Flip Wars, which finally got a North American release date: August 10.

The game will be playable alongside many other titles at the San Diego Mariott Marquis & Marina. This marks the first time Flip Wars will be playable for the public in North America since its announcement during a Nintendo Direct back in April. The title came out in Japan a couple months ago, and released in Europe on July 7. No price for the North American version was revealed at this time, but it is likely to be $9.99 as that amount is close to its pricing in other regions.

For those who may have not heard about Flip Wars, the title is a charming little multiplayer game where players must defeat their opponents by ground pounding titles, which flips them, knocks opponents off the map, and changes some surrounding titles to that players respective color. There are also other modes that focus on thing like trying to color as many titles as one’s color as possible. Power-ups are also occasionally dispersed to spice up matches.

You can watch an overview trailer from when it released in Europe below. Flip Wars is finally releasing exclusively on the Nintendo Switch eShop in North America August 10.
