Worms W.M.D Out Today on Nintendo Switch

There is more in the air than just thanksgiving, at least for Worms fans. Worms W.M.D launches today on the Nintendo Switch for 29.99. We reviewed W.M.D last year on the Xbox One and where not entirely thrilled with the title at the 29.99 price point. That being said, having the ability to take Worms on the go is definitely an added bonus over the other console versions of the game, making the 29.99 price point much more digestible. We will be reviewing Worms W.M.D on Nintendo Switch, and that should be ready next week. Until then, take a look at this press release from Team 17!
