The Switch is the hottest console right now for quirky indie games to find their time in the spotlight, and the wave of new releases on the console is coming thick and fast. One indie game of note that’s due out in the near future is that of Transcripted, a unique match three puzzler/shoot ‘em up hybrid that looks a bit like the love child of Nano Assault and Zuma.
Transcripted has been spotted on the eShop for a release of 23rd November in Japan, with a release in other territories soon to follow. Here’s how the developers describe the game:
Transcripted is a mixture of two incredibly addictive and vastly popular casual gaming styles: the dual-stick shooter and the match three puzzle game. In Transcripted players take control of the Nano Probe, a microscopic apparatus used to combat disease. With the aid of a skill tree that improves ship equipment, health, shields and the Nano Probe’s arsenal of upgradeable weapons, players must successfully navigate through hordes of deadly pathogens to destroy the disease’s pseudo-DNA as it twines perilously on its endless path to infection. Along the way players must defeat gigantic boss colonies the pathogen has evolved with the sole purpose of stopping the Nano Probe from completing its mission. Difficulty levels of both puzzle and shooting segments can be adjusted independently to suit every play style, making Transcripted an amazingly replayable experience.
