There's another neat game confirmed for the Switch eShop; this time around it's a colourful retro-styled shoot 'em up called Hyper Sentinel.

It's the work of Huey Games, an "8-bit software house" with a number of titles behind it. Hyper Sentinel was successfully funded on Kickstarter, not too long ago, for a range of platforms including PC, PS4 and Xbox One; evidently the studio has been in contact with Nintendo as it's now secured approval for the Switch.

You can see the Switch trailer below, showcasing the old-school action it'll deliver.

Below are some details from the press release.

"We are thrilled to be bringing HYPER SENTINEL to Nintendo’s newest platform. The fast-paced, high-score chasing gameplay loop is a perfect match for the Switch, and we cannot wait for players to take this amazing experience with them on the go.” - Rob Hewson, CEO & Creative Director of Huey Games Ltd.

Running at 60fps HYPER SENTINEL is a super-slick, ultra-fast arcade shooter with an explosive pixel-art aesthetic. Boasting 12 action-packed levels, exciting power ups and epic boss battles, the gamealso features...

  • 60 medals to complete
  • Online leaderboards
  • 3 difficulty modes
  • Combo-chain score system
  • Heart-pumping SID-style chiptune soundtrack by FRACTURES

It's due to land on Switch alongside the other versions later this Summer; anyone with a decent PC can also try out a demo from this web page.
