Chess Ultra Checks In

Today we are celebrating another Nintendo Switch launch, but this time for our very own game; Chess Ultra!

Chess Ultra, TIGA Awards finalist for Best Strategy Game, is available right now on Nintendo Switch™ in North America, Australia and Europe, priced at £9.99 / $12.49 / €12.49. The game features stunning visuals, seamless cross-platform online multiplayer and Grandmaster-approved AI that offers the ultimate chess experience and you can check out the trailer below.

Chess Ultra fully utilises the array of intuitive playing options on Nintendo Switch™. Fans can play on the big screen with the console docked, in tabletop mode with the Pro Controller, and on the go in handheld mode using either the Joy-Con™ controllers or by taking advantage of full touch screen functionality. Additional to this, the game also includes a unique way for two people to play the game in local multiplayer cross-table playing mode, whereby the console acts as the chess board. Place the console down between you and your opponent to play cross-table chess. Each player uses an individual Joy-Con™ controller to take their turn, and the game features an adaptive UI for cross-table play meaning you can focus on your strategy and enjoy the ultimate table top challenge.

We’re incredibly excited to see Chess Ultra live on the Nintendo Switch eShop, and we hope that you enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed developing it. Make sure to jump online and bring your A-game, we’ll see you on the leaderboard!
