Killer Queen Black Hits Switch Tomorrow

Thanks to our friends at Stride PR, I’ve had a chance to play upcoming arcade brawler Killer Queen Black.   Killer Queen Black pits two teams (gold and blue) against each other.  Each team consists of three drones and one queen.  The game’s objective is to work as a team to defeat the opposing side.  Each match is a best of 5 wins, so the first team to achieve three victories overall wins.  That’s it!  So simple, players from all backgrounds can enjoy it.  I’ve enjoyed my time with the game so far.  It’s also important to note that it includes cross-platform online play.
