Cypronia has announced that its first-person shooter parody Pixel Action Heroes is headed to Switch next month.

The game, which actually spent some time sitting at the very top of the eShop charts after its release on Wii U, lets you play as several action movie heroes in a fully destructible, block-building world. You can even become an FPS level designer, too, with options allowing you to create your own maps and customise skins to share with friends.

As you can see in the trailer above, some of the characters on offer include the likes of 'Arnold Weisenberg', 'Silver Stand Alone', 'Steamin' Senegal', 'Wayne Thomson', 'Bruise Leaf', and 'All Cappuccino', all of which come complete with classic one-liners from the stars they're based on.

Here's what you can expect to see in the game:

Game Features:
- Online Multiplayer (2-6 players)
- Gyro support
- Ragdoll physics
- Fully destructible maps (destroy the level with tools, guns, explosives)
- Map editor (create your own maps)
- Skin editor (customize your hero)
- Fluid and smooth gameplay (30+ FPS)
- Large variety of foes and challenging bosses
- Build your own maps and share with other players
- Large selection of firearms based on real life weapons
- Internet Rankings

Pixel Action Heroes has been completed and approved by Nintendo, with an exact release date still to be confirmed. Currently, the game is set to become available towards the beginning of August - which isn't long to wait.
