Developer Auroch Digital and publisher Ripstone Games announced that its Weird World War game “Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics” is coming to Nintendo Switch on January 24th. It will be available for £19.99 / $24.99 / €24.99.
Based on the hugely popular tabletop RPG from Modiphius Entertainment, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is an occult turn-based strategy game pitting players against a rogues’ gallery of Lovecraftian beings controlled by the Nazis. You’ll have to use your cunning military tactics, along with some nifty supernatural powers, to save the world.
Set in an alternate history of World War II where the Nazis’ investigations into the occult have resulted in the summoning of Lovecraftian monsters, you’ll have to take the reigns of
Charlie Company, an elite band of allied forces sent in to do the impossible; foil the Nazi plans and turn the tide of war.
“Being able to play a turn, then put your system to sleep and carry on the fight against the Nazis and Lovecraftian monsters when you next have the time feels great,” said Mike
Daw, Producer at Auroch Digital. “Whether playing a quick round in handheld, or a full-scale skirmish on your TV, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics on Switch is a perfect fit.”
