Wargroove, the upcoming turn-based strategy game from Chucklefish, has revealed the last three commanders on the game's development blog.

If you're a fan of Advance Wars, you might find something to love in Wargroove, one of the titles currently in development under Chucklefish Games. Up to four players can battle it out in a game of a similar style but with higher graphical fidelity and capability for modding (should players choose to do so).

 

Commanders in Wargroove serve as both the player's avatar and as the most powerful unit of your army. A number of them have been revealed already, and the last set of three are finally being revealed today.

Ryota is a handsome general representing the Heavensong Empire with boundless loyalty to Empress Tenri. Although he has lost his legs in battle, he's still more than capable in combat with his new prosthetics. Sedge of the Floran Tribe is a vicious assassin who wields a pair of deadly scythes and has a particular proclivity for stealthy slaughter. Finally, Queen Mercia's loyal dog Caesar is somehow able to command entire armies in battle despite the fact that he is a dog. Details on Caesar are light, but I can confirm that he is a very good boy and is very fluffy. He also looks very majestic in his adorable little dog-sized armor, yes he does!

 

Chucklefish will be streaming Wargroove tomorrow, June 8, 2018, on www.twitch.tv/chucklefishlive at 12:00 PM Eastern Time, so be sure to check it out. They'll also be at E3 with a playable version of the game at the [email protected] booth, although none of the developers will be able to make it there in person. Wargroove is slated to release sometime in 2018.

What do you think of the last three commanders revealed for Wargroove? Do you think the game can live up to the legacy of Advance Wars? Let us know in the comments below!
