Killer Queen Black Swarms in With Release Date Trailer, Will Launch in October

Upcoming multiplayer indie title Killer Queen Black finally gets an official release date, revealed at the end of an action-packed trailer.

Highly anticipated indie title Killer Queen Black finally gets an official launch date thanks to a new gameplay trailer released from Nintendo. The title will drop on October 11th of this year. The trailer itself showcases the frenetic and exciting gameplay between the various character classes, as it shows the various ways players can claim victory.

For those unfamiliar with the game, Killer Queen Black is a reimagined version of the arcade hit Killer Queen, which pits two teams of four players against one another in fast-paced multiplayer matches.

Taking on roles as opposing teams of bees, such as worker bees and the Queen, players have a variety of different goals they can complete to try and (ultimately) beat the other team, whether that’s taking out the enemy Queen, collecting berries, or riding a snail to the victory finish line.

Microsoft revealed back in March that the game would be a part of its Game Pass program during the company’s ID@Xbox Game Pass video series. And thanks to an announcement made back in May, it will get both a physical and digital release for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One once it does launch.

The physical release for Killer Queen Black will be priced at $29.99 on both Switch and Xbox One, with pre-orders now open at retailers. In addition to containing a physical copy of the game itself, the retail editions of Killer Queen Black will also feature an exclusive controller skin.
