It has been revealed that Morphite will launch on the Switch eShop on September 7th, at the same time as all other previously confirmed versions of the game.
Described as an "atmospheric exploration sci-fi shooter with platforming elements", Moprhite is a collaboration between Crescent Moon Games, We're Five Games, and Blowfish Studios, and follows the exploits of Myrah Kale, whose life "takes a sudden turn when a routine mission develops into an interstellar adventure revealing her mysterious past and connection to the coveted substance Morphite."
Players will assume the role of Kale as she explores uncharted planets packed with alien life. Using a scanner, players will be able to record data and sell it for profit, purchasing upgrades for her ship, suit and weapons with the cash.
When not planetside, Kale can engage in dogfights, trade with other lifeforms and use her starmap to locate other "procedurally-generated planets brimming with side quests."
Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios, sounds quite excited:
Morphite is an atmospheric sci-fi shooter with inspiration drawn from classic console games including Ratchet and Clank, Metroid Prime and Turok. With those roots, bringing Morphite to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is a natural fit, and we look forward to sharing our universe with everyone this September.
This certainly looks very interesting indeed, and it's good to see the Switch version launching at the same time as the others. Will you be investing your cash? Let us know by posting something below.
