WayForward Teasing New Mighty Switch Force Game?
If you’ve been keeping updated on the various indie games that are available on the 3DS and Wii U eShops, you’ve probably seen the Mighty Switch Force series. Developed by WayForward (maker of the Shantae series and DuckTales Remastered), it’s a series of puzzle platformers where you can push blocks between the background and foreground layers to navigate the game world. It’s a pretty popular series too, with decent (70-80%) Metacritic scores and sales figures.
But could the company be about to reveal a new title? It seems quite possible, given some of their (carefully worded) Twitter posts:

Note the pictures of past characters in the series, the talk of the ‘academy opening soon’ and the use of Mighty Switch Force in the hashtags. It’s about as close to a clear hint as you can get without actually announcing the game.
But what do you think? Are these Twitter posts hints that a new Mighty Switch Force sequel will be announced? And if so, what will the ‘gimmick’ be this time, given that the games before it in the ‘Mighty’ series had their own unique mechanics?
