Da Flyboyz iz comin to Switch next month, with Warhammer 40K: Dakka Squadron

From Phosphor Studios and publisher RedDeer.Games, Warhammer 40K: Dakka Squadron sends the Orks airborne in March.


Announced a little while back, developer Phosphor Games is preparing a fairly unique looking Warhammer 40K title. How’s that? Well, when was the last time that you played an aerial shooter that featured the Orks as the heroes (we guess)?

That’s exactly the premise of the newest title from RedDeer.Games, which puts fans in the rickety flyers of one of five playable clans. Players will be able to unlock new weapons and planes as they play, and of course change the color schemes of those planes. Remember, red = fast.

Warhammer 40,000: Dakka Squadron is an aerial shooter from the well-known franchise. This time, players will control a commander pilot of a fighter plane. Dynamic action of mid-air fights meet precise strikes of grounded targets – planet takeover has never been more fun!

RedDeer.Games press release

There’s the latest look at the game in action, which is looking pretty sharp. It’s got a little bit of a retro vibe to it, and even though it looks fairly modern, it reminds us of the shooters that used to hit consoles years back. If you’re ready to fly, you’ll be able to get that going pretty soon too.

As mentioned above, Warhammer 40K: Dakka Squadron is coming up next month, and is set to hit the Nintendo Switch in just a few weeks time, on March 8th.
