Bertil Hörberg recently released the Gunman Clive HD collection on the Switch eShop, so what's the Swedish-based developer up to now? It turns out he's actually been working on a new game for the past one and a half years, with two others.
Mechsternmination Force is a platform action title where you take on gigantic bosses with powerful weapons and upgrades. Hörberg describes it as a cross between the Contra series and the PlayStation 2 masterpiece, Shadow of the Colossus. The game will apparently be "a lot bigger" than the Gunman Clive games and arrives this Spring on the Switch eShop.
Below is the full PR along with the features:
Join the Mechstermination Force and save the world from the gigantic MegaMechs!
