Team 17 released a teaser today that Worms is coming to Switch.  I've only been waiting for five years or more for another Nintendo Worms release..

 

Sadly I think it will be download only.  Oh well, such a worms fan will probably still pick this one up....

I love the first two. Played the hell out of them on PC (LAN) back in the day.

I only ever really cared for the original and with this looking last I checked at only being a download I can't say I'm at all interested.

I'm a huge worms fan. Not a fan of downloadable only games though.

Agreed. Such a bummer.

How can games like this and Yooka Layay, which aren't exactly indie games at this point, be download only....sucks.

Damn I thought Yooka Laylee was physical on Switch too.  Damn that's a complete pile of crap.  If that's how they want to play it I'll just wait for a steep cut on GOG and get a real version of it through there.

No physical no purchase. Thats pretty much my blanket rule. I MAY at one point download one or two games. If Oddworld is on Switch yet I might get that.

Have pretty much made this rule for myself as well.  Trying to vote with my wallet and let developers know on Twitter that we want physical copies.  

 

Made and exception for Fast RMX and the Neo Geo titles...but not sure i'll do it again for much else

Same here.  I've got the ACA Mario Bros, Blaster Master 0 and Kamiko which have zero chance of a real release on physical media (though I thin BM0 given other Nicalis stuff could quality easy.)  Anything else I buy real copies, even if it means an import like I Am Setsuna.

Liked early worms, but digital kills it. Last digital game I paid for was plants vs zombies like 6 years ago, and despite being android its compatible with exactly one (of the dozen or so) device I own. When it comes to digital its free or f#$% it.

I have Worms WMD for the PS4 and it's a lot of fun. Took me a while to get used to the controls as I prefer Worms on PC but this game is a blast so I'm adjusting. Glad to see it's coming to Switch.

Nooooooooo! I have emailed Team 17 but they didn't get back to me. You'd think one of their flagship franchises might warrant a physical release... idiots. Not buying it unless I see it on a cart.

The official Worms Twitter account tweeted:

 

 

We will no longer be pursuing a physical version of Worms W.M.D on Nintendo Switch. Digital is the way to go to get your Worms W.M.D fix on Switch.

Welp.....guess i'm not buying it.  Still have plenty of worms to play on physical media on other consoles (Jag, N64, DC, DS, etc.)

 

Had a good whine about it to Team 17 HQ since i'm no longer on twitter:

Well that's my interest gone.  Good job with whining at them.  They deserve having to waste their time reading that before hitting delete.  I would have not thought as much of it had they never brought up physical, but pulling the rug out they can just suck it.

And once again....it pays to wait.

 

Worms is getting a physical release by Super Rare Games in the months ahead! 

 

Stoked for this one as my Wii and DS Worms games are well played through at this point.

I found out about Worms WMD coming from SRG the other day. It will obviously be a purchase for me ;) I have all of their releases thus far. #3 arrived yesterday and I just ordered #4. I love SRG stuff!

One thing I do have to say is that if you can only afford these games one at a time (like me) the shipping kind of stings. Its around $12 to ship to the USA through them. They do ship quickly and do arrive perfectly, but shipping costs really drive up the price for titles you can get really cheap on the eShop. But, I am about physical games and always have and always will be. The best way if you have the funds to save is to buy their packs of titles at once like this:

 

https://superraregam...human-and-flame

 

 

They really haven't had a track record of selling out on titles so you can probably hold out and pick up a few at a time this way. But I am always the worry wart that things one of their games (which are usually limited to 3K) will go out before it is included in a package deal with others so I just order them as they come about.

 

Here are the next nine games coming from SRG. I personally am waiting for N++:

That preview screen looks so annoying that there is no way I could watch it. I hope one day people stop with the shock and awe crap.

I hear you. I'm just interested in the games :) I remember playing N+ on the PSP and I loved that game.
