Oh My Godheads Party Edition hits Nintendo Switch today

Square Enix Collective is excited to announce Oh My Godheads is launching on Nintendo Switch today, marking the debut of the game’s brand new Party Edition.

This is the first time the game has gone portable! Want to take on your friends on the bus, on a plane or even in the Doctor’s waiting room? Now you can, Oh My Godheads’ new Party Edition has you sorted!

“The new Party Edition of Oh My Godheads is something we’ve been looking to do ever since launch, and this new upgraded version feels perfectly at home on Nintendo Switch,” says Federico Sauret, co-CEO of Titutitech. “We created a game designed to recapture the sense of fun so many couch-based multiplayer games pulled off in the 1990s, and this is something Nintendo itself has long been a master at. It all meant Nintendo Switch was the logical home for this new Party Edition.”

Oh My Godheads’ manic multiplayer charges players with carrying a variety of magical Godheads back to their base, reminding us of tradition capture-the-flag style gameplay. Except, here a whole heap of extra delirium is thrown in for good measure. Besides defending against each other’s attacks, players also have to face the Godhead itself – a typically disobliging and hostile memento rather cool on your advances.

Besides the original content from Oh My Godheads, the Party Edition includes:

  •  New content including a new tower level, new godhead, and a gallery with game art.
  • New Tournament mode modality, allowing players to compete in a set number of matches with a brand new points system.
  • Refined visuals, improved core player movement (allowing you to tackle your rivals and send them flying), re-balanced levels and godheads, improved UI, and AI.
  • Trials mode can now either be played solo or in co-op mode.
  • In addition, most trials have been redesigned adding 10 new trials.
  • A brand new Platinum Medal tier for the most skilled players!
  • Optimisation to take advantage of Nintendo Switch hardware.

“This latest version takes the best elements of Oh My Godheads and builds on them brilliantly,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “It’s the ultimate party game. On top of optimising play for the new format, taking the game portable means watching just where players indulge in some retro-style couch multiplayer in the coming months is going to be my own personal hobby in the weeks ahead.”

Oh My Godheads is available as of today in the Nintendo eShop with a 10% discount for the first two weeks (normal prices being £11.99/$14.99/€14.99). Original Oh My Godheads is already available on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam for the same prices.

If you’re still sleeping on Oh My Godheads, here are some reasons you should get on it:

  • Hilarious couch multiplayer for 1-4 players
  • Battle computer-controlled characters in single player mode
  • Capture-the-head’ gameplay supercharges capture-the-flag with uniquely powered godheads
  • Multiple magical godheads – explosions, control-switching and more
  • Bright, colourful 3D environments in world-spanning locales
  • Ridiculous cast of characters to play
  • Swords, hats, monocles and airborne pastries
