More On: Mighty Switch Force! Collection

Wayforward Technologies have announced that they are bundling the entire Mighty Switch Force! series into one budget priced package, set for release on July 25th for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Steam, GOG and Humble. Mighty Switch Force! Collection brings 4 games--Mighty Switch Force!, Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition, Mighty Switch Force! 2, and Mighty Switch Force! Academy--into one digital edition for $19.99. The series stars police officer Patricia Wagon, who can swap elements of the foreground and background for a puzzle-action-platformer experience that is as challenging as it is addictive.

I've always wanted to get into this series, but it's been difficult to track down. The first two games were released years ago on the 3DS, a remake of the first game then followed on Wii U, and then the third game (a prequel) was exclusive to Steam. I'm a little bummed that the series' DSi predecessors, Mighty Flip Champs and Mighty Milky Way, aren't included in this collection, but it's still a pretty good deal. In any case I've always enjoyed Wayforward's games and their cute, flirtatious sense of humor, and I've been curious to check out the games featuring Shantae's spiritual cousin Officer Wagon.

Grab your Pellet Shooter, turn on your Infinity Dousing Apparatus, and activate your Siren Helmet! WayForward is thrilled to announce that Mighty Switch Force!Collection—featuring four complete games—is on its way to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, at last allowing players to enjoy the series’s core entries in one convenient package. (That’s right, we’ve finally put the “Switch” in Mighty Switch Force!) Comprising Mighty Switch Force!Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive EditionMighty Switch Force! 2, and Mighty Switch Force! Academy, this highly requested, value-packed compilation arrives digitally on July 25, 2019.

“Fans have been asking to see more of Mighty Switch Force! for a while now,” said WayForward creative director Matt Bozon, “so we’re very happy to finally answer those requests and bring the series to current platforms. With four games’ worth of content for less than $20, Mighty Switch Force! Collection will have more action, challenge, and savings than you can throw an Ugly Twitching Dog at!”

The fun begins with Mighty Switch Force!, in which players take control of cybernetic law enforcer Officer Patricia Wagon, jumping and blasting their way across Planet Land in pursuit of the escaped Hooligan Sisters. Using Officer Wagon’s unique Siren Helmet, you can reconfigure level layouts by “switching” blocks from the foreground to the background (and vice versa) — each stage is a puzzle that tests your wits as well as your reflexes. Next, Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition takes things to a new level with gorgeous, high-definition visuals and super-challenging Hyper Mode stages. The action then really heats up in Mighty Switch Force! 2, which sees Officer Wagon trade in her Pellet Shooter for the Infinity Dousing Apparatus (AKA a firehose) as she encounters new types of blocks and battles a mysteriously relentless inferno while overcoming a fresh batch of brain-bending, block-shifting stages. Last but not least, Mighty Switch Force! Academyallows up to four players to team up or battle it out to put new recruits through their puzzle-platforming paces in sprawling widescreen levels.

Carrying an ESRB rating of E10+, Mighty Switch Force! Collection is planned for digital release via the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store, Xbox Live, Steam, GOG, and Humble Bundle at the price of $19.99.
