'Chess Ultra' (ALL) Coming To Nintendo Switch - Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 2, 2017 @ 8:09 a.m. PDT

Chess Ultra is an Unreal Engine 4 powered chess game, featuring a variety of game modes, and intuitive online play.

Chess Ultra is a sequel to Ripstone's original million-selling 2012 title Pure Chess, and is a massive improvement on the original title in every way, with crisp, beautiful 4K visuals across a whole variety of environments and chess sets.

Ripstone's first in-house developed game, built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 4, features a range of single-player and online game modes, including 10 different AI levels to conquer all the way up to Grandmaster-approved levels.

When players take the game online, they'll quickly find their friends and other Chess Ultra players in ranked, regular, Fischer and Marathon matches.

Twitch integration is just one of the brand new additions in Chess Ultra, allowing Steam players to stream the game live on Twitch and play against their streaming community, who will be able to enter chess moves into the chat.

Ripstone revealed that Chess Ultra, their new in-house developed chess title, will launch this year on Nintendo Switch.

Chess Ultra features stunning visuals, seamless online multiplayer and Grandmaster-approved AI that offers the ultimate chess experience.

“The team here at Ripstone are delighted to bring Chess Ultra to Nintendo Switch, it gives players a completely different, intuitive way to play the game. There’s a lot of lifelong Nintendo fans in the studio, and we love being able to support the console" states Matt Southern, Head of Development at Ripstone.

More details, and Nintendo specific features, will be revealed soon.
