We love a good shmup here at Nintendo Life Towers, and the upcoming Freedom Finger from Wide Right Interactive looks like a refreshing spin on the genre with the addition of melee combat. With a crazy soundtrack featuring a whole host of famous musicians and voicework from none other than Nolan North, this looks like one to watch out for.
More from the press release:
Freedom Finger sends you blasting, punching, and smashing your way across 37 levels of crazy cartoon action. Featuring a unique soundtrack including music by Red Fang, Aesop Rock, METZ, Power Trip, Com Truise, White Fence, Ty Segall, Makeup and Vanity Set, True Widow, The Radio Dept., Drab Majesty, John Maus, Vektroid, Danimal Cannon, Cleaners from Venus, and many more!
Freedom Finger features classic shmup gameplay blended with melee combat! You're flying a giant fist, so use it! Punch, toss, and smash enemies to smithereens! The unique Grab attack allows you to capture enemies; use them as a shield or wield their guns against their own comrades!
Rhythm based chaos! The music is heavily connected to the gameplay, so things like enemies, bosses, attacks, and events are synced to the music.
Fight your way through 37 handcrafted levels, spread out over 12 worlds! Each world features new enemies, power-ups, and challenges!
Freedom Fingers blasts on to the Switch on 27th September. Will you be checking this out?
