Polygon’s Dante Douglas reported on how the upcoming launch of Killer Queen Black from Liquid Bit and BumbleBear Games is making Killer Queen Arcade players hopeful for a positive impact on the competitive scene. The addition of Killer Queen Black “could change the small but dedicated community forever,” says Douglas. Douglas also gave a quick breakdown of the differences between the two versions:

Black is also introducing some mechanical changes that McKenzie expects to differentiate it from the arcade version. The Switch release will change the game to a 4 vs. 4 format instead of the traditional arcade 5 vs. 5. It will also feature revamped graphics and visual design. The game’s warrior class units have also been given a new variety of weapons, in comparison to the original game’s more simplistic moveset.
