Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 0 comments
Update: We’ve received an official announcement from Drool now. It’s looking like May 18 will apply to both North America and Europe.
Original: The European Switch eShop has updated with a listing for another significant title. It seems that Thumper is just around the corner, as it’s listed for May 18. The game will cost €19.99 / £15.99.
Here’s an overview:
“Thumper is rhythm violence: classic rhythm-action, blistering speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront a maniacal giant head from the future.
Scream down the endless track and crash through punishing obstacles with simple, airtight controls. Hurtle forward, master new moves, reach overwhelming velocities, and survive epic boss battles. Every crushing impact is interwoven with a pounding original soundtrack. To reach synthetic bliss, you must conquer rhythm hell.”
Most games tend to hit the North American and European Switch eShops at the same time. We don’t have a confirmed release date for the states currently, but a May 18 launch is likely as well.
