OVERWHELM Heads To Nintendo Switch On April 4, Will Include Co-op Mode

A gauntlet of endless and ever-upgrading monsters will soon be invading the Nintendo Switch, next month!

Alliance has announced that OVERWHELM is hitting the Switch eShop on 4 April 2019. The hardcore action title will feature a co-op mode exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version – so you and a friend can team up to face certain death.

Check out the reveal trailer below, along with more details.


Overwhelm is a suffocating action platformer where enemies get power ups and you don’t. It is coming to Nintendo Switch on April 4 featuring an exclusive co-op mode. Play through the whole game locally with a friend, reviving each other when you go down. Defeating each of the five bosses will give the hive’s creatures additional abilities, so choose wisely: which one will you take on first?

Key Features

  • Bosses Give Enemies Power-Ups: As you defeat each of the five unique bosses, their abilities get distributed to the enemies of the world with escalating difficulty.
  • Tactile, Tense Combat: Combat is crunchy and fast. One hit and you die. Three deaths and the run is over. Defeat bosses in different orders to optimize your playthrough.
  • Intense Soundtrack and Soundscape: The sparse but powerful soundscape keeps you focused and scared. The soundtrack provides occasional ominous synths to compliment intense boss fights and big moments.
