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.

Initially released during the series’ 21st anniversary on August 23, 2016, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Worms W.M.D. is a 2D turn-based tactics game. In addition to receiving the base game, the Nintendo Switch version of W.M.D. also features a slew of additional features such as single Joy-Con support, a new Space theme, Mushroom and Tree House forts in Forts mode, as well as previously unseen customization options, which includes three new outfits.

Speaking of the Nintendo Switch version, yesterday Team17 released a new update for the game along with a trailer to commemorate the occasion. Additionally, if you would like more information on the title, check out the launch trailer, which was released back in November.

Worms W.M.D. is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
