Worms W.M.D appeared last year on the Nintendo Switch as a digital download.
Developer Team17 initially had plans to also physically release the Nintendo Switch version. It has now become clear that this will no longer happen.
The developer informed on Twitter that the retail version of the game has been canceled.
Cancelled but open about it
This means that if you want to play Worms W.M.D on your Nintendo Switch, you will have to buy it digitally. The game has recently received an update on Nintendo’s hybrid console.
Team 17 on Twitter:
We will no longer be pursuing a physical version of Worms W.M.D on Nintendo Switch.
Digital is the way to go to get your Worms W.M.D fix on Switch.

With all the successes that the Nintendo Switch has been allowed to celebrate you would sometimes forget that sometimes some things do not work either. The beauty of all this is that Team 17 also remains transparent about how and why;
We felt that for our Worms fans on Switch, digital presented the best value for money.
For example, another Team17 title, Overcooked, is £17.99 digital or £29.99 physical.
