Game publisher Marvelous has announced that the mech-based third-person shooter Assault Gunners HD Edition is boosting onto Switch this week.

Previously released on PS4 and PC, Assault Gunners HD Edition is set to retain all of the intense mech combat action and high levels of customisation in this latest Switch edition. Naturally, the Switch version will also introduce a handheld option for the first time, with mech fans able to play the game on the TV in docked mode, or on the go in tabletop and handheld modes.

The game features 35 full-length battle-heavy missions, a horde gameplay mode known as 'Inferno Mode' covering five varied maps, and over 100 mech customisation possibilities. Players are put in control of the peace keeping force known as DAT, and along with your three allied Battle Mechs, you must attempt to save Earth’s Migrants and the Mars Colonies from the threat of the ANTS uprising.

There will be three different options available on the eShop - the standalone game, DLC to add to that purchase, or a bundle that encompasses all of the content in one handy package. The DLC includes 15 extra campaign missions, three additional Inferno Mode maps, 15 new weapons, extra customisation options, and more. The game launches this Thursday (5th July) with a 10% launch week discount.

▪ ASSAULT GUNNERS HD EDITION (Standalone Game) - £7.99 / €9.99 / $9.99
▪ ASSAULT GUNNERS HD EDITION COMPLETE SET (Standalone Game + DLC) - £9.99 / €11.99 / $11.99*
