The Switch eShop has played host to several quality rhythm games over the months since launch, with the likes of Voez, Thumper, and Runner3 bringing plenty of musically infused action to the hybrid. Indeed, it still feels like the genre is a little underutilized on the Switch, but that issue will soon be helped by Just Shapes & Beats, a game which got a spotlight in the Nindies Direct. The game has just been given a release date, and we fortunately won’t have to wait to much longer to take a crack at it.
Just Shapes & Beats fuses shmup elements in with the musical action, tasking you with maneuvering your shape around dangerous waves of red that pulse and rise with the soundtrack. Featuring 35 tracks, both local and online multiplayer, and a challenge mode that features randomized layouts, and it sounds like an experience that’ll be just as content rich as it is intensely difficult. Berzerk Studio just announced today that the game launches on 31st May, so be sure to keep an eye out for this one.
