Drainus made its way to Switch this week, and fresh gameplay has emerged. 23 minutes of footage gives a look at the side-scrolling shooter.
If you’re interested in learning more, check out the following overview:
Out in the far reaches of space lies a planet suffering from the oppressive rule of an Empire. Deciding to fight back, a slave steals and takes control of the “Drainus”, a ship that embodies the Empire’s latest energy-absorbing technology. Zip around space shooting down hordes of enemies in this exciting side-scrolling shooter!
The Drainus comes equipped with the “Reflector”, allowing you to absorb energy attacks and fire them back at your enemies for massive damage. A portion of the energy from these attacks is also stored in tanks, which is used to enhance various features of the Drainus. Turn defense into offense in a split second to navigate the raining enemy fire.
Convert absorbed energy into Homing Missiles, Reflective Lasers, Omni-directional Physical Shields, and much more. Pick and choose your build to suit the situation or your own play style.
With three difficulty levels (easy, normal, hard), anti-collision assistance, unlockable game modes, and the ability to replay stages with different loadouts, Drainus comes with everything a good side-scrolling shooter can offer.

Drainus can be purchased digitally on the Switch eShop. The language lineup is English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Traditional Chinese.
