Kero Blaster IMG

Lovers of retro-inspired side-scrolling action games will be pleased to hear Playism is bringing Studio Pixel's 2014 game, Kero Blaster, to the Switch eShop. The game is due out in Japan on 23rd August for ¥980 (roughly £7.00 / $9.00) and can be pre-loaded now according to Japanese Nintendo.

In Kero Blaster, players take control of a fearless frog employee who must restore power to a series of company teleporters. The bipedal amphibian will travel to an array of locations, taking on many weird and wonderful enemies including bosses, while collecting coins and more to upgrade its weapons, health and further increase its overall chances of completing each mission.

The title was originally revealed earlier this year for the Switch alongside physics puzzler TorqueL and RPG Croixleur Sigma.

There’s currently no word on a western release for Kero Blaster, so in the meantime, check out a brief clip of the game below, and tell us in the comments if you would download this on your Switch.
