A little while ago we shared the news that Implosion: Never Lose Hope was confirmed for the Switch eShop in Japan. Seemingly shortened now to just Implosion, the mech-based sci-fi hack and slash game's transition from smart devices to Nintendo's system is nearly complete.

Out in Japan shortly, a listing on the European eShop shows that the Flyhigh Works-published title (the studio that brought us Kamiko) is also heading to the region on 5th July, priced at £10.79 in the UK store. You can see a flashy cinematic trailer below that aims to emphasize the production values that were previously highlighted as a big plus for the game.

Rayark - the game's developer - boasts that it 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." You can see a couple of screens below.


We'll keep an eye out for a North American release date; are you tempted by this one?
