Today publisher Coatsink announced that they’re teaming up with PHL Collective to bring their hockey based party game ClusterPuck 99 to the Nintendo Switch. ClusterPuck 99 was originally released back in 2015 for the Xbox One and on PC via Steam. This title is a sport based party game with an emphasis on getting everyone involved in the fun.

As well as the announcement Coatsink also released the above trailer showing off the title in action as well as highlighting new features that will be available for the Nintendo Switch version of the title. This title allows you and up to 7 of your friends to face off in teams to take control of the puck and score it in your opponents goal. It’s not just regular hockey though as there are all kinds of differently shaped arenas, boosts, and hazards to avoid as you race around in 4v4 battles.

As well as the 30 stages that were available in the base game there will also be additional stages, a single player challenge mode, and even a stage editor allowing you to create your own arenas to face off in. Using the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con you’re able to connect up to 8 to a console at once so everyone can get in on the action.

At the moment there is no release date planned for ClusterPuck 99 but if you’re interested in trying it out and are planning on attending RTX London or the Tokyo Game Show then you’ll be able to get your hands on it. If you’re attending those events or even EGX then you’ll also be able to play SHU, another game from Coatsink.

What do you think of ClusterPuck 99 coming to the Nintendo Switch? Do you already own it and can recommend it? Do you think this would be a worthy addition to your collection of party games?

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
