A successful games publisher in Leamington that has doubled in size in the past year is set to make its first foray into console gaming.

Up until now, Kwalee has solely been focused on publishing mobile games, having released global hits such as Draw It, Shootout 3D, Rocket Sky! and Bake It, which have collectively been downloaded well over 400 million times.

Now the team is set to release TENS! in late 2020 on Nintendo Switch, an updated version of the 2017 mobile game from Kwalee.

Kwalee describes TENS! as 'combining the tricky number puzzling of sudoku with Tetris-style block-dropping, before adding plenty of character into the mix with a single-player adventure mode, challenging boss battles and intense local multiplayer'.

It also represents a return to console platforms for Leamington native and CEO David Darling CBE, who as a co-founder of Codemasters launched classic gaming series such as Dizzy, Micro Machines and Colin McRae Rally.

Mr Darling CBE said: Within the past year, weve more than doubled in size and this rate of growth goes to show not only our success, but our ambition to keep creating and trying new things.

"As many of us are avid players of the Switch, releasing a game for the platform was a natural step for us to take.

"TENS! is a game weve always been proud of and felt it translated to these platforms really well, especially with all of the new added value weve built into the game.

The original creator of TENS!, Kwalees head of design and development Simon Platt added: Mobile gaming is still very much what were about here at Kwalee, but as we approach our 10th anniversary in 2021, we want to keep challenging ourselves and trying new things.

"Ever since the first release of TENS! back in 2017, we have wanted to do more with this innovative and fun puzzle game. TENS! for Nintendo Switch gives us the opportunity to push the concept further than ever before with additions such as competitive multiplayer and challenging boss battles. Im excited to see the reception and for what the future holds for us on the Nintendo Switch!
