Chess Ultra for Nintendo Switch includes cross-platform play and exclusive multiplayer features
26th September 2017: Earlier this summer, Ripstone, the British publisher behind hit games including Ironcast, Stick it to the Man, and Extreme Exorcism, revealed that Chess Ultra, which is a TIGA Awards finalist for Best Strategy Game, will be launching on Nintendo Switch™ later this year. Today they are delighted to confirm some exciting multiplayer features for the game.
Fans will already know that Chess Ultra features stunning visuals, seamless online multiplayer and Grandmaster-approved AI that offers the ultimate chess experience. Ripstone have today confirmed that the Nintendo Switch™ version of the game will include cross-platform compatibility, enabling players across PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch™ to be able to play chess against each other.
It has also been confirmed that Chess Ultra fully utilises the array of intuitive playing options on Nintendo Switch™. You can play on the big screen with the console docked, in tabletop mode with the Pro Controller, and on the go in handheld mode using either the Joy-Con™ controllers or by taking advantage of full touch screen functionality. Additional to this, it will also include a unique way for two people to play the game in local multiplayer cross-table playing mode, whereby the console acts as the chess board. Place the console down between you and your opponent to play cross-table chess. Each player uses an individual Joy-Con™ controller to take their turn, and the game features an adaptive UI for cross-table play meaning you can focus on your strategy and enjoy the ultimate table top challenge.
Key features of the game include…
⦁ Stunning environments and beautiful chess sets, including a ‘Fire and Brimstone’ chess set that literally burns
⦁ 10 Grandmaster approved AI levels
⦁ Comprehensive time controls, including Classical, Blitz and Marathon, all available online
