Firegirl: Hack 'n Splash Rescue is a rather promising upcoming 'roguelite', with eye-catching visuals and all sorts of mechanics based around dousing fires. Unfortunately it's been confirmed today that while it's still hitting its 14th December release on PC, its console versions (including Switch) have fallen back to 2022.
This has been done to ensure it's properly optimised and ready to go, of course, so hopefully the extra development time will pay off. If you're still not sure what this one will be all about, the official description below should help.
Firegirl: Hack ’n Splash Rescue is a roguelite platformer where you take on the role of a young female fire rescue officer breathing new life into her rundown local fire station. Armed with your trusty axe and high-pressure fire hose that also doubles as a jetpack, respond to emergency calls that bring you to dangerous procedurally generated blazes across the city. When Firegirl arrives on the scene, she has 3 minutes to save all the civilians caught in the blaze! Extinguish fire monsters to buy more time in these tricky missions where you will feel the heat as you battle to get the job done. Uncover the truth of why these fires have engulfed the city, in a mystery that goes all the way to the top!
Between high-octane missions where you will be boosting your jumps with your hose, extinguishing dastardly pyro-monsters, and rescuing trapped civilians (and cats!), you can hang out at the Firehouse. Here, you can upgrade your equipment and hire new staff to make you more effective in tackling the challenging blazes to come. You’ll need all the help you can get to survive in this fun, thrilling and tricky roguelite!
Hopefully it won't be too long before this one arrives on Switch - are you planning to pick it up next year?
