Early Arrival: Mighty Switch Force! Academy

Mighty Switch Force! Academy is the stage for Patricia Wagon's latest adventure. Patty has just entered the academy, which consists of a virtual training ground where she attempts to track down and arrest all of the Hooligan Sisters, just as she did in Mighty Switch Force. This time around, however, the action takes place from a zoomed-out perspective, and the player is able to see the entire stage at once. In addition, the environment wraps around on the edges, allowing the player to move off the edge of the screen and emerge on the other side, or fall down through the floor and pop out on the ceiling. The basic gameplay is in place, but a few new elements have been added, and WayForward is collecting player feedback during the game's time in Early Access to determine which new elements will be added to the final product. Oh, and the game features some classic levels from the original game as well as 4P co-op.

Mighty Switch Force! Academy is currently available for PC via Steam Early Access, but it will also be coming to (as yet unannounced) consoles on its final release. Check our full coverage of the Early Access version here.
