Coatsink and Sigtrap have announced that they will be bringing Sublevel Zero Redux to Switch, spicing things up with a gyro control scheme exclusive to the console.
Sublevel Zero Redux is a roguelite 'six-degree-of-freedom' shooter set in a universe where reality is falling apart. Players must use their gunship to loot and craft ancient technology and fight in zero-g through a vast, procedurally generated underground facility to recover the technology they desperately need to escape.
The game has received "very positive" reviews on Steam and this new Nintendo Switch edition will feature gyro controls for the first time. Players can get the edge over their enemies with increased precision thanks to the 'toggleable Aim' or 'Aim & Look gyro'.
6-DOF Action - Your gunship is free to fly and rotate in all directions. You can attack from any angle, and so can your enemies. Inspired by classics such as Descent and Forsaken, Sublevel Zero’s retro gravity-defying combat is driven by modern looting and crafting.
Procedural, Permadeath - No lives. No saves. Fight your way through a different procedurally generated environment every time. Make every shot, every decision count. A wide range of environments stand in your way, from industrial zones to mining caverns. Think on your feet and adapt to each one’s hazards before it’s too late.
Crafting - Collect a wide range of randomly-generated weapons, upgrades and game-changing items. Craft them together to equip your gunship for your play style. Unlock more items and blueprints as you play and keep those unlocks across playthroughs.
Luke Thompson, co-founder of Sigtrap Games, has said the following about the new announcement:
"The creation of SubLevel Zero Redux was inspired by gaming classics from my childhood such as Descent on PC and Forsaken on Nintendo N64. We’re thrilled to be bringing our homage to these games to the Nintendo Switch in collaboration with Coatsink."
No specific release date has been announced for the title just yet, but we do know that it is set to release on the Nintendo eShop later this year across all regions priced at $19.99 / €19.99 / £17.99 with a 10% launch discount.
