You might assume that Untitled Goose Game is the only goose-related piece of software you need on your Nintendo Switch (especially now it has a bonus co-op mode), but we'd argue that there's always room for more avian fun on your console, which is why we're pleased to report that publisher Playism is bringing Blastmode and MP2 Games' Mighty Goose to Switch.
This 2D run-and-gun blaster places you in the webbed feet of the titular bird as it aims to live up to its fame as one of the galaxy's most prestigious bounty hunters and take down the evil Void King.
The game is also coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Here's some PR:
Traveling the galaxy, hunting down evil. This is the life of Mighty Goose. One of the galaxy's most credited bounty hunters!
At the core Mighty Goose is a tight side scrolling run & gun shooter that will test your skill, timing, reflexes. Building upon that solid arcade base, the game adds a ton of crazy weapons, warmachines, upgrades and secrets.
Assume the role of Mighty Goose and bring the fight to the Void King. This galaxy conquering monarch commands a vast army of minions and mechanised monsters. Dealing with these baddies means traveling to distant worlds and facing all kinds of dangers. But not to worry, this is no problem for the legendary Mighty Goose!
+ Fast-paced run-and-gun experience with tight controls.
+ Battle against screen filling bosses that will test your skill, timing, and dodging
+ Customize your playing style using a combination of upgrade chips, secondary weapons and assist characters.
+ Pilot devastating war-machine vehicles to decimate large groups of enemies.
+ Beautifully crafted vibrant pixel art worlds, vehicles and characters.
+ An amazing soundtrack featuring crunchy synth-rock and funky jazz-fusion melodies. Composed by Dominic Ninmark (Moonrider, Blazing Chrome, Gravity Circuit).
Jumping on the Goosey bandwagon!
@YoshiTails even an accidental sale is still a sale!
I've only got enough space for one goose in my affections. I'm a one goose sort of guy.
Well, day 1 for me, innit?
Looks great, hopefully there are unlockable skins so that the goose doesn't look so goosey but more mechy 🙃
@Savino Yeah it just looks like typical mechs and robots with a goose plonked in, lol
They needed a mascot, found out geese were in this year, so used that.
I think that looks like tremendous fun. If it reviews well, I'm in.
At least they bothered to name this one. Still waiting for Untitled Zelda Game though, and I don't care if they name it
Well this looks pretty great!
When I saw the name, I was ready to rip on this as a cheap cash-in on a fad. However, this game genuinely looks good. I'm prepared to make room in my heart to love another goose 😄
I was not prepared for how brilliant a Contra+MetalSlug clone/homage this game appears to be.
Plus, little-duck-sidekick is the most adorable war accessory I have ever seen.
I'm hoping to one day convert Frances Hardinge's wonderful book Fly By Night to a game as well, letting you tag team as an obnoxious goose AND a rude tween girl. ^^
have been following this development for years, can't wait to finally have my shotgun goose!
Doesn't look like it's got co-op so Untitled Goose Game is still the king for multi-goose carnage
Oh look, a Titled Goose Game
It reminds me of Metal Slug, and looks fun
Very Metal Slug-or Goose in this case. Colour me intrigued.
