Wargroove Is Like If Advance Wars and Fire Emblem Had a Baby

Wargroove Is Like If Advance Wars and Fire Emblem Had a Baby

It's coming to the Nintendo Switch too.

We're at E3 2017 covering the year's biggest gaming event. Be sure to check out all our coverage on our E3 2017 hub!

Wargroove has been teased before, but its time on the PC Gaming Show stage was our first extended glance at the tactical turn-based RPG title that's coming to PC and Nintendo Switch.

Wargroove is a tactical turn-based RPG with a twist, beyond its endearing art style. Today the developers behind it showed off the game's full campaign editor, where players can tweak and build their own stories and scenarios within the game. Everything built within the campaign creator will be shareable online as well.

It's also worth noting that this is a Chucklefish game without "star" in the title, after their prior game Starbound and their publishing of Stardew Valley. Maybe it's not worth noting. But maybe an expansion can bring the ol' "star" back for a change.
