One-man indie developer Oddly Shaped Pixels has announced that Super Rocket Shootout is headed to Nintendo Switch, releasing just next week.
The game is a frantic pixel art brawler which mixes lightning-fast platforming actions with fighting game mechanics for up to four players. Players will be able to master jetpacks to slip right behind opponents for melee-range attacks, or use shotguns, homing missiles, boomerangs and more to fight from a distance. Defence is just as important - players have to use their shield wisely, performing perfect blocks to deflect incoming attacks - and the fighting goes deeper with combos, 'Super Moves', 'Super Attacks', and counters.
Super Rocket Shootout features a story mode and local multiplayer mode (for up-to-four players), has eight playable characters with unique abilities, eight destructible stages, and various in-game achievements and unlockables. The game has been receiving positive reviews on Steam, so this could be one to watch out for.
The game is scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch on 5th April for $9.99 / €9.99.
