Graceful Explosion Machine developer Vertex Pop has been tinkering away on its next project Super Crush KO. The indie studio originally had hoped to have it ready in late 2019, but that window has now been pushed back to early 2020.

Vertex Pop, developer of the addictive shooter Graceful Explosion Machine, unveiled its next project today. Super Crush KO is in development and is planned for Switch.

Super Crush KO is a stylish brawler / shooter hybrid that takes place in a vibrant, near-future city. Players will control a neon-wearing, robot-stomping hero as they attempt to save humanity from an AI apocalypse. Online leaderboards and ranking systems will be included.

To celebrate the first anniversary of Graceful Explosion Machine, developer Vertex Pop shared a blog post today looking back on the game’s creation and more. You can read the full thing here.

According to Vertex Pop, Graceful Explosion Machine has sold just under 50,000 copies on Switch. As it looks towards the future, the studio has confirmed that a new game is coming to Nintendo’s console in 2019. Details are mostly nonexistent at this point, but we can say that it’s an action title, and it will be colorful.

In an interview with The OP, Vertex Pop founder Mobeen Fikree says he and his team are working on a new title for the Switch. Vertex Pop previously released Graceful Explosion Machine for the console back in April of last year.

We were overwhelmed with the reception Graceful Explosion Machine received from Nintendo fans, so we’re definitely working on a new game for the Switch.



Another third-party Switch game now supports video capture. Graceful Explosion Machine received its latest update today, adding in the functionality.

Make sure your game is updated to version 1.1.3. You should then be able to record footage like other supported Switch releases.


Graceful Explosion Machine has received a new discount on the Switch eShop. Starting today, the game can be purchased for 30 percent off in both North America and Europe. That brings the price down to $8.99 / €8.99 / £6.99.


A new update has just gone live for Graceful Explosion Machine. If you’ve purchased the game, version 1.1.0 can now be downloaded.

First, Graceful Explosion Machine’s score screen has been redesigned. A new AI system was also created to capture the best part of your run, which is shown on the score screen. Loading should also be nearly twice as fast now.
