Update: [Mon 12th Jun, 2023 15:00 BST]: At this weekend's PC Gaming Show, Batterystaple Games revealed the official release date for 30XX — 9th August. It arrives on Switch the same day as 1.0 drops on PC.
Here are some more details on the game from the developer:
"Rise from the ashes in a post-apocalyptic future conquered by evil robots to discover what the past 1,000 years has come to as the dynamic cyber-duo Nina and Ace. Outmatch overwhelming enemies in heavy duty, fast-paced action in the roguelite Classic Mode, or take it easy in the permadeath-free Mega Mode in either single-player or online/couch co-op with a friend.
Procure new weapons and power ups across ten randomly-generated levels, all to the sweet sounds of a retro chiptune flavored original soundtrack. Build, share, and play custom levels with the MegaCommunity in the new Maker Mode on PC, and enjoy these levels on Nintendo Switch as well. Design stages jam-packed with endless editing options for the trickiest of brain teasing puzzles and the toughest speedrunning challenges, or craft your own Metroidvania. "
Original article [Wed 7th Jun, 2023 19:30 BST]: If you've played 20XX, we're confident in betting that 30XX is one of your most anticipated games. The lighting-fast roguelike's sequel is leaving Early Access in Q3 2023, which means that 30XX will also be coming to Switch at the same time as its 1.0 launch.
Developer Batterystaple Games calls 30XX a "mega-roguelike", which should tell you everything you need to know. Visually inspired by Mega Man, 30XX comes with tailored difficulty settings and a brand new Maker Mode — which will allow you to make your own levels and comes from the man behind the Mega Man Maker fan project.
We had a blast with 20XX back in 2018, and we said that "Playing 20XX has an addictive rhythm to everything." We couldn't put it down, frankly, and we scored it an 8/10:
