Pawarumi, an "intense, challenging and fast-paced shooter", will be blasting its way onto Switch later this month.

On the surface, Pawarumi looks like your typical shoot 'em up, set in a futuristic universe with more bullets and spaceships than our eyes could ever hope to keep up with. As it happens, though, this one's a little different, and it's all thanks to what the developers are referring to as a Rock-Paper-Scissors-style mechanic called the Trinity.

Here's everything you need to know:

"Pawarumi features a powerful mechanic called the Trinity. The three basic weapons are controlled by coloured divinities - Condor (laser) is blue, Serpent (Gatling gun) is green and Jaguar (missiles) is red. Enemies you face are powered by the same divinities, and by targeting with the same as them, or different colour, you trigger one of the three bonuses of the Trinity - Boost, Drain or Crush. But be warned, there are both positive and negative consequences.

"Shooting with a weapon of a different colour than the enemy will either Drain or Crush. Drain transform enemies’ pain into energy that charges Super Attack. Crush multiplies the damage you deal to enemies by a factor of 1.5."

On top of this, players are only granted one life, and your shield will reduce strength by a third every time you are hit. In a really neat touch, the game actually recognises the colour of any Joy-Con you connect to the console and changes the colour of your ship to match.

The game launches on Switch on 24th July, but pre-purchasing has now gone live on the eShop. You can go ahead and buy it for £13.49 / $14.99.
