Bad news for Worms fans who love physical copies of games (and happen to own a Nintendo Switch), yesterday, Team17 announced that a physical version of Worms W.M.D. for the Nintendo Switch was canceled.
This news comes by way of the official Worms Twitter account, which replied to a fan who asked when they could expect an official release date for the Switch version of the game. To which, the publisher responded that they would no longer be pursuing a physical copy for the title and that the only way to purchase the game on the Switch was to buy it digitally via the Nintendo eShop.
We will no longer be pursuing a physical version of Worms W.M.D on Nintendo Switch.
Digital is the way to go to get your Worms W.M.D fix on Switch.
