Mighty Switch Force! Academy heads to Steam Early Access tomorrow

While Wayforward was giving us subtle hints there was a new Mighty Switch Force! game in the works, we didn’t know that we’d get to play it so soon, but we are. Recently announced, Mighty Switch Force! Academy will be available via Steam Early Access, as early as 12PM! And while the name is familiar to many of us, the game in this new spin-off will actually be a tad, er… a lot different. Take a look at the screenshots to see what I mean, the game is actually played via the entire screen.


On top of that, the game will also feature several different ways to play:

  • VS. Mode – a new competitive mode where players will battle other players to rescue the most hooligan sisters, pickup upgrades, and try to crush their opponents.
  • Mighty Shot (it works but isn’t implemented through menu flow).
  • The goal for the final level count (not including classic stages) is between 25-30, but this is ttentative
  • Steam Leaderboards and Achievements.
  • Additional victory illustrations.
  • New “phase-in” animations for Gendarmor, Ugly Twitching Dog, and the Hooligan Sisters.
  • New level songs.
  • More robust options as the community makes requests.

From the day she was born, Patricia Wagon has dreamed of becoming a police officer! And today, at Planet Land Police Academy she’ll finally have her chance to prove her mettle! The only thing standing between her and a badge are a slew of holographic challenges deviously designed by her instructor, the robotic Corporal Gendarmour. These drills will push Patty’s skills to the max as she blasts foes and outwits puzzles – all on her way to apprehending dastardly simulations of public enemy numbers 1 through 5: the Hooligan Sisters! Help Patty survive her trials and prove that she was made for this job!

Mighty Switch Force! Academy is a spin-off of the original police-themed, dimension-switching game by WayForward. Here in the Academy, these massively brain-twisting shooter/puzzles become bigger than life, spanning the entire HD screen! Academy contains brand new puzzles and some twists on the classics – introducing a hectic cooperative couch-play option, for up to 4 players, which will have you and your fellow trainees in stitches.

Mighty Switch Force! Academy is part shooter, part puzzle, part party, and partly developed…? HOLD IT RIGHT THERE! The game is currently in Early Access, and that means you can get in on the action and help SHAPE THE GAME with your feedback in the Steam Forums. Co-op? Competitive? More levels? New ideas? This game is ready to play today, and SWITCH UP tomorrow according to your feedback! A new way to play together from your friends at WayForward! Move out!

So get ready, you Mighty Switch Force! fans,  Academy is coming your way tomorrow! Head on over to Steam to get your copy – http://store.steampowered.com/app/350210/.
