PixelHeart is bringing Brazilian developer Statera Studio's run-and-gun game Guns N' Runs to Switch on 31st March.
With eight different characters to pick from, and each having their own unique story, Guns N' Runs demands precision platforming as your run, jump, dash, and shoot your way through multiple levels. It also looks pretty cute, too — we can imagine playing this on a GBA or DS with the lovely hand-drawn pixel graphics.
Publisher PixelHeart is also selling a limited edition physical release, with 2,000 copies available for the Switch (and a further 1,000 for PS4) with unique cover art. PAL territories will, however, also have access to a standard special edition.
Here's some more info on the upcoming game from the press release:
In Guns N' Runs, you take control of eight seasoned members of the Conspiracy squad in a stylish, hand-drawn pixel art run and gun against a technopathic prodigy and his army of robots.
Help our protagonists infiltrate a bunker in the middle of the Atacama Desert on a challenging and dangerous capture and rescue mission. Designed for single player, this game features over 200 challenges, 23 bosses and focuses on the individual narrative of each team member.
The controls are simple and accessible - you can jump, shoot, move and use special weapons - but don't be fooled! The game has progression levels that require a greater depth of skill to advance to the next levels. In this game, you will learn a new lesson with every death.
Use a variety of weapons, protect yourself with a shield, collect your dash to use it in sequence, destroy some enemies with a reinforced dash (if you found it) and enjoy every second of the game with an original soundtrack that will leave you excited with each new step.
So get ready to push your limits.
- Choose your character from the 8 members of the Conspiracy Squad.
- More than 200 challenges to overcome.
- 23 bosses, each more difficult than the last.
- Easy to understand controls that require mastery.
- A variety of weapons for both attack and defense.
Guns N' Runs will blast its way onto the Switch eShop on 31st March, so in just over a month's time. Will you be joining the Conspiracy Squad next month?
What do you think of the Guns N' Runs? Have you played the game on Steam at all? Let us know down below.
I really hope the name is a play on Guns n' Roses and there's a character with a top hat in the game!
Alright, color me interested. Good reviews will sway me
Now that looks like an anxiety inducing experience alright. They should put a warning on the game about anyone with a heart condition to play at your own risk
@jump yeah or even have a boss named "Mr. Brownstone" or a level called "Pretty Tied Up".
How expensive is it on Steam?
Looks cool, definitely interested in seeing more of it and hope Nintendo Life will review it!
@jump or like Axl Rose, they did got away with it on Guilty Gear hehe.
Runs are red,
Violets are Deep Purple,
The King is dead,
and Angus Young has a hirple.
I can't get over that name. Lol
@Gingeroyboy125 Same 😆
I'm not meaning to be the guy pointing out the obvious joke, but that has to be an intentional reference to, shall we say, involuntary bathroom visits, right? Not just a silly switcheroo?
@MikeJones Yeah it sounds like there's a mechanic that makes you need to stop off in a bathroom every few minutes or it's game over for your pants.
