Playism has announced that the 2D side-scrolling action shooting game Kero Blaster will launch on Nintendo Switch on August 23, 2018 for $9.99. Pre-orders are available now on the Nintendo eShop in North America and from August 16, 2018 in Europe.
Kero Blaster is a side scrolling action shooting game from Studio Pixel, the creators behind Cave Story. After its success on PC and iOS, Kero Blaster was released on Steam, adding an extra mode “Zangyou mode”, named after the Japanese word for “overwork”.
You play a bipedal frog employed by the mysterious start-up company “Cat & Frog Inc.”. Fend off enemies seeking to stop you and overcome the challenging landscape as you head toward your destination.
When you start the game, you’ll likely be surprised by your skimpy amount of life and your crappy weapon. And when the frog runs out of life, he “enters the hospital” and has to restart from the beginning of the stage. But you can keep collecting and saving up money to go “shopping” to increase your life and carefully select powered-up weapons to take down enemies you couldn’t defeat before. The further you get, the stronger you can feel yourself becoming – and it feels good.
The characters appearing in between stages are the game’s other charm point. You’ll meet your coworker, who is a cat (for some reason), your president (also a cat), and an office lady of indeterminate species. They work like us, slog through overtime like us, complain, get chewed out, and even comfort each other, just like us.
