MechaNika releasing soon on Switch
Posted on August 23, 2018 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Earlier this year, Mango Protocol brought Agatha Knife to Switch. The studio has now confirmed that another one of its games, MechaNika, will also be getting a release on the eShop.
MechaNika will have you playing as a the sassy seven-year-old girl Nikka who is on a quest to find the components she needs to build her particular deadly metal weapon. With it, she’ll destroy all of the things in the world she doesn’t like. Mango Protoco says “MechaNika is a whole new darkly sarcastic adventure with fascinating characters, each with their own twisted story, many puzzles with different ways to be solved, and more stunning hand-drawn visuals.”
Here’s more information and a trailer:
I, Nika Allen, 7 years old, am sick to death of this world. My parents don’t care about me. My brother never takes any notice of me. At school I never get taught anything useful. There are loads of things that shouldn’t exist. It’s for these reasons that I’ve decided to destroy everything that isn’t cool. With MechaNika I will destroy and eliminate the things and the people that I don’t like. I’ll start at home. Then school. This city. The entire world. I’ll get rid of everything that’s boring and pointless, and this world will be better for it.
If it’s not cool, it will disappear. If you’re not cool, hide. MechaNika is here.
Meet Nika, an intelligent girl that doesn’t fit the world in which she lives. Perhaps it’s the chocolate shake with a shot of cognac which she carries in her backpack which makes her different. Or maybe it’s the fact that at 7 years old her favourite things are the transfer of energy, magnetic fields and electrical engineering! But being the odd one out doesn’t matter to Nika. Not anymore. She has a plan to solve everything. A really… odd plan. You read the MechaNika manifesto, right?
