Team shooters are great, but what if you could bend the laws to time and physics to become an entire team of combatants? That’s the idea behind Nimble Giant Entertainment’s Quantum League, which was revealed to be coming to Nintendo Switch late in 2020 during today’s Nintendo Indie World.
Do you ever wish you could go back in time and fix your past mistakes? Quantum League sort of gives you that chance. Players will take on the role of a competitor in an arena shooter where you learn from your mistakes by making time clones of yourself and then hopping back in the field. The time clones will essentially follow the patterns that were laid out before them before you died allowing the new version of the player that you're controlling to try a different approach and hopefully not take a bullet to the head this time. It’s a very unique and interesting approach to team shooters that I can honestly say I’ve never seen before.
Quantum League has a vibrant and cartoonish style to it, so don’t expect to see a ton of shot-up corpses on the ground. It almost feels like an FPS where everyone is playing as Tracer from Overwatch, which could be interesting to play. But, it’s looking like it’s going to be awhile before we get to take it for a spin first-hand.
