Tikipod Ltd has shared with us a brand new trailer for Rock Boshers DX: Director's Cut, revealing that the game will be headed to Switch early next month.
Described as an "exceedingly retro arcade adventure", Rock Boshers DX has you travelling back to the 1880s to help a young Queen Victoria fight her way across Mars in an attempt to escape from home. With video games not being a thing back in the 1880s, this game aims to look, feel, and sound like the 8-bit styles present in the 1980s instead, mixing top-down action and eight-way directional shooting in the process.
You'll be blasting away monsters, "biffing" politicians, driving a tank, collecting snacks, meeting Charles Darwin, unlocking arcade games, outsmarting giant brains, and more; our chums over at Push Square noted that "while the game treads fairly common ground, the true retro callbacks, satisfying difficulty, arcade minigames, and audio comfortably set it above the sediment of what's average" for retro-inspired indies.
The game will be available on Switch on 1st December, but pre-orders are actually going live as early as tomorrow (15th November). If you do happen to pre-order it, you'll benefit from snagging a 10% discount on the suggested price (which is to be confirmed).
