Indie developer JoyMasher has released a brand new gameplay video for the upcoming Blazing Chrome, a retro run and gun title heading to Switch "soon".

The game is actually inspired by, and is acting as an homage to, Contra and Metal Slug - two run and gun classics which have stayed firmly in the minds of fans since launching in the '80s and '90s respectively. We're told that the developer, which is actually made up of a couple who have turned their attention to game development, is currently hard at work polishing the final tidbits of gameplay - hopefully we won't have too long to wait until its released.

If the video above isn't enough for you, we were also treated to a separate video just a couple of months ago. You can check that one out here if you're interested. Featuring an Earth-saving story, plenty of power-ups, powerful exosuits, futuristic weaponry, and six different stages to explore, this one could be worth keeping an eye on.

But what do you think? Feel free to share your thoughts on the gameplay footage in the comment section below.
