Trinket Studios and Adult Swim Games revealed today during the Nindies Summer Showcase that Battle Chef Brigade, which intriguingly mixes hack ‘n slash RPG mechanics with match-3 puzzles, will be coming to to Nintendo Switch later this year alongside to previously announced PC and PS4 version.
The developers describe Battle Chef Brigade as “Fantasy Iron Chef.” The game is set in a fantasy world that is inhabited by Orcs, Humans, and Elves, and has the best cooks out of them compete in a tough competition where they must go and and hunt deadly monsters for ingredients before coming back and cooking something for the judges.
This is where Battle Chef Brigade’s two different gameplay styles come into play. When players are out hunting, the game functions like a 2D hack ‘n slash RPG. When players go back to cook, the game switches (pun intended) to a match-3 system; if players do well here, there dish will come out great. In typical culinary show fashion, there is also a time limit, so players must hop between these playstyles quickly in order to get their dish done on time.
You can check out some screenshots of the game and the Nintendo Switch version’s reveal trailer below. Battle Chef Brigade is currently set to launch on PC, PS4, and Switch sometime during Holiday 2017.
