Astebreed is coming to Switch, Playism has announced. The game is one of several titles that will be featured at the Tokyo Game Show this week.
Here’s an overview for Astebreed, a new take on arcade shooters:
Astebreed takes the classic arcade shooter and breathes new life into it. Using lovingly crafted 3D models, cutting edge particle effects, and tried-and-true Japanese mecha designs, Astebreed delivers an unparalleled atmosphere of beautiful destruction.
You are Roy Becket, a young pilot with dreams of becoming as skilled as his adoptive father. Roy’s mech can shoot from a distance, paint targets for precision homing attacks, and even get close for a killing blow with a powerful blade attack.
Your enemies swarm, fly and intercept, and Astebreed’s dynamic perspective always keeps the action in view. Seamlessly switching between veritcal, horizontal, and 3D shooter, Astebreed will keep you guessing what your next threat will be, without ever interrupting the action.
The End of All Things is in sight. At the edge of eradication stands Astebreed.
And a trailer:
Playism has not yet stated when Astebreed will be available on Switch.
