Starward Rogue

Klabater is partnering with Arcen Games to port Starward Rogue to Switch, the company has announced. A release window has not yet been determined.

Aside from porting, Klabater “is committed to exploring new localization options and addressing potential bugs to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for console players.” The title itself is a bullet hill twin-stick shooter.

Here’s an official overview:

Starward Rogue offers players an enthralling bullet hell twin-stick shooter experience as they navigate their way through the Megalith, a rogue-lite labyrinth embedded in the side of a star. In game, players take on the role of a “head in a mech” harvested from the neck of a Space Hydra (from other Arcen Games title, The Last Federation). Armed with a diverse array of weapons, perks, and upgrades, players must navigate evolving catacombs that expand with each success, facing off against regular enemies, minibosses, and epic bosses in over 500 rooms. The game was well-received on PC by critics and fans, being favorably compared to games like Binding of Isaac.

Key Features

  • 9 starting mechs with unique abilities, such as time control and shot magnetism.
  • 5 difficulty levels for players of all skill levels.
