Crunching Koalas bringing Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition, Butcher to Switch

Posted on August 18, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Crunching Koalas has two new games lined up for Switch. The studio will be bringing Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition and Butcher to Nintendo’s console at some point in the future.

Lichtspeer describes itself as “an unforgiving fast-paced lightspear-throwing simulator set in an ancient germanic future.” On Switch, a new and exclusive co-op mode has been added in.

Butcher was previously released on other platforms, similar to Lichtspeer. The tough 2D shooter has players taking on enemies and defeating them in all sorts of ways.

We’ve included overviews and trailers for Lichtspeer and Butcher below.

In a land filled with Penguin Vikings, Wurst Zombies, and Hipster Ice Giants, survival is an art. Fortunately, an ancient champion with an elegant weapon has been summoned to please the gods and restore balance to the universe.

Grab your lightspear, become a Germonaut and traverse through lands straight out of Germanic myths. Survive with style and expand your powers to fight for the glory and amusement of the almighty Gods.

AIM. SHOOT. KILL. DIE. THE LICHTGODS DEMAND IT.

Butcher is a fast-paced 2D shooter and a blood-soaked love letter to the cult classics of the genre.

As a cyborg programmed to eradicate the last remnants of humanity, your sole purpose is to… well… annihiliate anything that moves.

So grab your weapon of choice (from chainsaws to shotguns, to grenade launches) and kill your way through underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities, jungles, and more. And if you’re feeling creative, there are plenty of other ways to end your enemies’ misery – hooks, lava pits, saws… no death will ever be the same again.

If kicking corpses into a lava pit and adorning walls with blood is your idea of a good time, Butcher is the game for you.

The easiest mode is ‘HARD’!
