Vampire Survivors

Vampire Survivors just received a surprise version 1.10 update dubbed “Laborratory”.

The update adds a new wave of content, including a new character, new bonus and challenge stage, and more. That’s on top of the latest tweaks and fixes.

Here’s the full rundown:

Vampire Survivors Operation Guns DLC Contra

Vampire Survivors today unveiled Operation Guns as its latest DLC, which features a collaboration with Konami’s Contra series. It’s due out on May 9, 2024.

The DLC offers a bunch of new content. Players can access 11 gun-slinging characters, 22 new weapons between base versions and evolutions, a new large stage and a new bonus stage, 13 music tracks directly from the Contra series and 6 brand new covers, and a silly 6-chapters Adventure.

In a post via X, Nintendo have revealed that Vampire Survivors is the next game to get the Nintendo Switch Online Game Trial treatment.

Those that are currently a part of the service can play the full game entirely at no extra cost. The trial period will be held between March 14 and March 21.

Like other similar offers of this nature, any progress you make can be used in the full version if you choose to purchase the game later on. Additionally, you can earn Platinum Points on My Nintendo simply for participating.

Vampire Survivors launched on Switch via the eShop in August 2023. Read more about it below.

Vampire Survivors review

System: Switch
Release date: August 17, 2023
Developer: Poncle
Publisher: Poncle

Every now and then a game will be released that breaks away from the labels that we use to define titles and will become a thing entirely unto itself. Vampire Survivors is one such game, having been met with massive success when it first launched last year. Part rogue-like, part bullet-hell, and entirely self-contained, it has already inspired several other titles that have tried to capture its unique magic. It is magic, I am very pleased to say, that is a perfect fit for the Switch, and a game that is more than worth your time.

With Vampire Survivors now having reached Switch, gameplay is available. It gives us a closer look at the time survival title with roguelite elements.
