We love a good shmup here at Nintendo Life and Astebreed seems like it might be worth a look for fans of the genre. Launching today on the Switch eShop, the game will set you back $19.99. The game was originally released in 2014 on various other platforms, but now it's made it over to the Switch for portable play.

In the game, you play as a young pilot by the name of Roy Becket, who dreams of becoming as skilled as his adoptive father. When a galactic war with an ancient mechanical alien race reaches its boiling point, Roy is forced to spring into action and take control of an otherworldly bipedal war machine in hopes of saving what's left of humanity.

Astebreed features battles on seamlessly changing fields through which you can freely side-scroll both right and left as you shoot around space in a fight for your life.
