Available as we speak on Nintendo Switch is Project Nimbus: Complete Edition, a mecha action game that will no doubt hope to give the upcoming Daemon X Machina a run for its money.

Described as a "high-speed mech action game set on a devastated future Earth", this one has players taking control of a weaponised humanoid Battle Frame. You'll need to engage enemy units with various weapons and defeat huge bosses and ace pilots. With 360 degrees of freedom, your battles will feature a variety of weapons and techniques, from smart missiles to the blade charge.

Here's a handy list of game features:
■ High-speed battle action, piloting heavily armored Battle Frames through the war torn skies.
■ Twenty-six missions in a variety of locations, including floating cities, ocean fortresses, mountain bases, futuristic prisons, and battles in space.
■ Over a dozen playable Battle Frames with weapons including smart missiles, energy blades, particle cannons, floating energy shields, railguns and autonomous psychodrones.
■ A sprawling storyline with battles between three different factions over a war-torn futuristic planet: the US-lead CFN, the Russia-led UCN, and the shadowy terrorist Children of Fallen Nations.
■ Complex bosses each with a unique fighting style, including orbiting nuclear battle mechs, bands of deadly pilots, and weaponized flying ships.
■ Missiles, rail guns and cannons for long range combat...energy blades and blade rushes for melee!

<Various Additional Modes>
■ Bonus Survival Mode lets you choose from an entire hangar of Battle Frames, and then you must battle endless waves of enemies with increasing power.
■ WARFRONT mode includes massive replayability with six unlimited mission modes including Base Defense, Interception, and Assassination. Six levels of pilot (including Legendary) and Battle Frame customization will keep you playing for hours more.

You can buy this one right now from the Switch eShop for £15.99 (currently discounted to £14.39) or $19.99 in the US.
