Developer Dreadbit and publisher Ripstone Games announced today that they have launched their unique steampunk puzzle strategy game Ironcast will be releasing on Nintendo Switch for $12.99. This marks the first time either company has released a game on Nintendo’s new handheld/console hybrid.

The game first released a PC in March of 2015, before making its way to PS4 and Xbox One last year. The Nintendo Switch version of Ironcast was announced earlier this year, and contains all of the commanders and mechs that are present in the other releases. The game can be played in both docked and undocked mode, and supports a wide variety of control options, from the singular Joy-Con or touch screen controls to a Pro Controller. Ironcast also boasts HD Rumble support.

For those who don’t know, Ironcast is set in the 19th century, and the player control the titular Ironcasts as they try to prevent a French invasion of Britain. The game features roguelike elements, as when a player dies, their campaign ends, and the must starts over with some of their previous upgrades. Fights are conducted with a match-three style system.

If you want to see the game in action, you can check out some screenshots and the launch trailer below. Ironcast is now available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
