2Awesome Studio today announced that the 2D side-scrolling shooter The Bug Butcher will launch on Nintendo Switch on November 8, 2018. Pre-orders will be available on the Nintendo eShop on November 1, 2018 with a 10% discount.
The Bug Butcher is an action-packed 2D side scrolling shoot em up game where peril comes from above. So in a nutshell, pest control with machine guns in space. Something has gone terribly wrong and the super secret science facility has been infested with nasty bugs which really, really like the poor scientists there. You are Harry, the best bug exterminator in the galaxy and those scientists better have insurance to cover this because your services aren’t cheap!
Exterminate increasingly crazier waves of bouncing bugs through 30 levels, blasting them into smaller and smaller chunks that somehow keep on bouncing around with beautifully predictable patterns. Customize your gear and upgrade your weapons for those situations when a swarm of guided missiles may come in handy.
The Nintendo Switch version runs with 1080p at 60 FPS and is playable in docked, handheld and tabletop mode. It includes a two-player co-op mode, online leaderboard and also supports the Nintendo Switch Pro controller.
