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.
