The multiplayer ground-pound territory control game is being developed by Overfence Co. Ltd.

Project MEKURU, a multiplayer game for the Nintendo Switch whereby players ground-pound on tiles to capture territory on the stage, has just been revealed by Nintendo of America's Damon Baker.

Taking advantage of the the day's Nintendo Indie Showcase event, the reveal video showcased four-player battle mode gameplay on stages composed of tiled flooring and obstacles. Players controlled Miis (Baker confirmed Mii Support for the title), and used a ground-pound move to smash into the floow and flip over closeby tiles to their color instead of that of their opponents. The short video also showcased power-ups, different stage layouts, and how getting caught in the flipped-tile area of an opponent's ground pound would send you flying off the stage.

While Baker said that development was going well for the title, no release date was announced.
