[Switch] Killer Queen Black - $2.79 (Was $27.99, 90% off) @ Nintendo eShop

680

Easily the most underrated/underappreciated multiplayer games I've ever played.

Just get this.

Competitive team-based contests based on the concept of the original arcade game, Joust, only with Bees.

The game now even supports 8-player local 4v4 offline matches if you're capable of hosting such an event.

The ultimate arcade eSport comes home.
Fight for your hive in this strategic team platformer with three ways to win! Hop on the snail, hoard berries, or wipe out the enemy's queen to claim victory.

FEATURES
Fast-paced four on four team combat with four unique weapons: sword, morning star, laser and stinger

Three roles to play as, Queen, Soldier and Worker, each with their own strengths and responsibilities

Six different battlefields, each requiring different strategies to master

Five character skins to choose from

Tough AI opponents to test your skills against

Complete tutorial: Learn everything from snail riding to queen combat

Spectate mode: Watch other players and pick up new techniques from the pros

Detailed stats: keep track of everything from your wins and losses to how many berries you've brought home

Three modes of online play:

Unranked: Hop in solo or with your friends and play against other teams in exhibition matches that don't affect your rank standings.

Ranked mode: Put it all on the line. Hop in solo and get matched with players of your skill level, or join in with three friends and compete against other online teams to increase your score, rise in the leaderboards, or face the Black Team!

Custom Match: Create a private game and invite up to seven other players to battle for bragging rights, or challenge a team of bots!

Cross-platform multiplayer: Nintendo Switch™, PC, and Xbox players can all compete together

Play locally with up to 4 players, or up to 8 players by connecting two Nintendo Switch ™ consoles

    Oh boy, big deal. I can echo OP's sentiments, at this price just get it.

    You can probably think of it as a slightly harder, more strategic, version of Towerfall.

  •  

    Good that hold it. Time to $$

  •  

    I remember the reviews for this being really good.

  •  

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    Top 3 party games, for me (best for 8 players).

    •  

      What are the other 2? :)

      •  

        Overcooked (for co-op, 4 players) and Towerfall (for free-for-all / team deathmatch, 6 players).

        •  

          Thanks :-) I actually have both of those :) Overcooked is hugely stressful, the number of times I've just had to walk away.

        •  

          Overcooked if you want arguments with friends!

    Thanks OP! Managed to get for free with gold points I forgot about :)

  •  

    Wow, I was intrigued by this game, this price is amazing.
    Van anybody comment on the playerbase pre-sale? I'd assume that'd be the purpose of the sale?

  •  

    You owe me $2.79 if this is rubbish OP, your description sold me!

  •  

    Tossing up b/w Switch or Steam version for same price.

    •  

      Steam version is 11c more and isn't portable

      Writing seems on the wall

    •  

      Really no reason not to get this on switch, its not a demanding game so the quality of the game is going to be 1:1 with the PC version but switch is portable so thats a big plus.

  •  

    played the very original game at a museum in new york (i think it was a student project).

    got the game on the steam sale and haven't been able to find a multiplayer game as yet :|

  •  

    I'm so jaded by the constant Switch 'deal' posted I almost didn't read this.

      It helps if you hide deals from certain users

  •  

    This is the time when I use my gold coins. Yay free quality game.

    Grabbed this this morning, Kids have already had more than 2.79 worth of fun out of it. Shame doesn't seem to be any good online match making.

  •  

    Hi All,

    any idea how to check for other sale games on the e-nintendo shop?
    My switch is arriving tomorrow and want to check what games I can get from online rather than spending extra at the store.
    thanks all!

      www.dekudeals.com

      That is the one-stop website you'll ever need once you learn the basic navigational tools.

      It's easier and quicker to browse than the actual eshop too, and once you set up your Nintendo account tomorrow you'll be able to purchase games through the links provided on DekuDeals via your browser

        appreciate the response!
        will be checking out the link.
        Cheers

    Liked the gameplay, but could only find a couple of bot matches online (Steam / PC).

    •  

      Played this afternoon and found some matches, but unfortunately only over in the US West server. Laggy and borderline unplayable as the queen, but doable as the worker
