Asymmetric revealed that they would be bringing West of Loathing, which released on PC back in August of 2017, to Nintendo Switch during March’s Nindies Presentation. Today, the developer announced that it will finally be hitting the console/handheld hybrid on May 31.
For those of you who don’t know, West of Loathing is a western themed turn-based RPG follow up to the popular 2003 PC game Kingdom of Loathing. West of Loathing keeps the surreal wit of the original, and tops it all off with a unique black and white stick-figure art style.
Players choose between the Snake Oiler, Beanslinger, and Cow Puncher classes at the beginning of the game before going an adventure and discovering several quirky characters and locations. According to the developers, West of Loathing has sold over 150,000 copies on PC, so it makes sense that they would now want to expand to the console market, especially with the Nintendo Switch’s thriving indie scene.
