Underground Pits arrives on Switch and many other platforms next month. It is inspired by real-time handicaps and lets you fight a bunch of bad guys on your own, or interact with three other players online or locally. According to the game the official FAQ

Here's hoping it thinks and adds to the online gaming experience in the update later down the line.
