Out of seemingly nowhere, publisher Wizard Games has released a new free-to-play twin-stick shooter known as Turbo Shot on the Switch eShop. This seems to be the Canadian publisher’s first dive into the console market. As for the game itself, it’s packing not only a full-on single player campaign, but an ever-evolving 12-player PvP mode, complete with weekly content and planned seasons of new content.
Here’s a deeper dive into this new adventure, via Nintendo:
Blast bots, solve puzzles and fight to win in an ever growing Story and online PvP mode.
Turbo Shot combines a puzzle-filled top-down adventure with exciting gun-based combat that plays out in regular seasons of free-to-play single player and PvP content.
On the remote world of Pimlott-4, everyone works for Stinchcorp. But when siblings Skylar and Jin discover that the evil Dr. Stinchcomb is using the company as a front for kidnapping Blerphs and exploiting the natural environment, they know they have to fight back!
Join them as they escape Stinchcorp and join a group of freedom fighters who work with the Blerphs. These adorable creatures have long guarded their home and evolved a range of abilities that help them adapt to Pimlott’s unique environments. With their help, you’ll harness the power of the Blerphs, discover new tech, explore the world and fight back against Dr. Stinchcomb and his army of bots!
