Rising Star Games and developer Ground Shatter have announced that RICO will be firing onto a Nintendo Switch near you next week.

The game has players stepping up to be a member of the elite RICO taskforce, where you'll have just 24 hours to solve a case and bring an end to organised crime. You'll be kicking down doors and shooting your way through randomly generated levels that are said to make every case "new and unique".

You'll also be able to team up with a friend if you prefer, playing the role of a pair of loose-cannon police partners and supporting each other through urban shootouts. Both online and local co-op play is supported.

James Parker, Director at Ground Shatter, has said the following in a press release today:

“Games can change people’s lives, inform us about the human condition, and tell epic stories of love, life, and loss… RICO doesn’t do any of those things, it’s a game about kicking doors open and shooting bad guys, often in glorious slow motion.”

Game Features:

  • Compete against the clock to solve a case in 24 hours
  • Online Co-op and Offline split-screen play
  • "Daily play" with online leaderboards
  • Randomly generated cases, operations, and environments
  • Unlockable weapons, traits, and equipment

With arcade-style tactical shooter action, weapon and equipment unlocks, and leaderboards to challenge, this could be worth keeping an eye on. You'll be able to download RICO from the Switch eShop on 14th March.
