SkyScrappers Coming Soon to Nintendo Switch!

Bristol, United Kingdom, October 15th, 2018 – Ground Shatter and Ant Workshop today announce that classic arcade-style, multiplayer fighting game, SkyScrappers, will release on Nintendo Switch on the 29th of October with exclusive vertical “Tate” mode and is available to pre-order now.

There exists a secret group of international risk-takers who seek sky scrapers planned for demolition to use as their playground, as they fight one another and race skyward through falling debris before the building crashes to the ground… or they do.

SkyScrappers thrusts players into the heart of exploding sky scrapers, where they must race, scrap and scale their way up crumbling brickwork in the ultimate daredevil race to the top. Players must time their ascent to navigate treacherous debris and utilize falling platforms, while attacking their opponents to force them to the bottom. SkyScrappers includes two-four player local multiplayer and single-player campaigns, with a range of modes to master.

Working proudly in conjunction with seasoned publisher, Ant Workshop, to bring SkyScrappers to the Nintendo Switch; Ground Shatter are excited to introduce a brand new and exclusive vertical Tate mode developed exclusively for the platform.

Ground Shatter Director, James Parker said, “In many ways the Switch is the natural fit for SkyScrappers. With its pick-up and play controls and couch multiplayer, it’s never been easier for a group of friends to grab a JoyCon and jump into the high-rise action. And the new vertical Tate Mode finally brings to realisation the authentic arcade experience that we’ve craved since we came up with the game.”

Teaming vertical gameplay with hand-held, one-stick, two-button controls and an incredible 90s style arcade soundtrack; SkyScrappers fuses a retro style with stunning graphics and platform optimization to create a perfect classic arcade game for the modern era.

SkyScrappers is available to pre-order now on EU, US and AU Nintendo Switch eShops.
