It has been revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu that smartphone title Implosion: Never Lose Hope is coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop in Japan next month.

Developed by Rayark, the game will cost 1,111 Yen. In keeping with the simplistic controls of the smartphone original, Implosion showcases a stripped-down control system - the Y button is used for standard combo attacks, while the X button is used for heavy attacks. "ARKs" obtained during gameplay can be equipped to your mech suit, allowing you to customise how it handles.

Want some plot? Here's some plot:

Twenty years after the fall of Earth, the remnants of the Human race are once again faced with extinction. The time has come to justify our existence. A mysterious life form known as the XADA squares off against humanity's last weapon - the War-Mech series III battle suit.

Rayark boasts that the game contains "console-quality graphics, first-class voice acting and Hollywood-grade audio production", and includes "full orchestral scores masterfully mixed by Grammy Award winner and The Lord of the Rings trilogy engineer, John Kurlander." Sounds promising!

There's no word on whether or not Implosion will be released outside of Japan on Switch, but the smartphone edition is already available worldwide on the iOS App Store and Google Play, so there's a good chance.
