THQ Nordic seemingly bringing Rad Rodgers: World One to Switch
THQ Nordic has brought a number of titles to Switch as of late, including de Blob, Titan Quest, and Battle Chasers: Nightwar earlier in the year. Rad Rodgers: World One appears to be the next release from the publisher.
Over on GameFly, a listing has appeared for Rad Rodgers: World One on Switch. The retailer tends to be very accurate, and hasn’t let us down in the past when it comes to new games we hadn’t known about previously.
Rad Rodgers: World One is an action-platformer inspired by the likes of Commander Keen, Conker, Ruff’n’Tumble, and Jazz Jackrabbit. Learn more about the game with the following overview and trailer:
Rad is a rambunctious but spirited young boy who maybe plays too many video games. After dozing off at the tail end of a long night of gaming, Rad awakens to find his dusty old console has turned itself back on. Suddenly a vortex emerges and he’s sucked into his TV, where he finds himself the star in his very own video game adventure.
Dusty is Rad’s good-hearted but foul-mouthed, now-sentient game console. His clock speed isn’t what it used to be, but what he lacks for in megahertz he makes up for with experience and attitude!
Rad & Dusty’s adventure begins in the First World, taking them through seven dangerous stages of action-packed, humor-filled, hardcore platforming fun. This decaying jungle world has been infected by a fierce corruption, and it’s up to the unlikely buddy-duo Rad and Dusty to save the jungle’s inhabitants and restore the Elder Tree as guardian of the land.
Weapons: Dusty arms Rad with a variety of radical bad-ass weaponry. The Bolt Blaster has unlimited ammo, is easy to use, and more than enough firepower to get the job done. The Phoenix Cannon shoots out a fiery bird whose wingspan lights enemies ablaze as it flies by. There are 5+ weapons in this first chapter, with more to come.
Sounds & Music: Our composer Andrew Hulshult combined his years of musical experience (both performing and writing) with his passion for retro-style gaming to create an amazing and authentic soundtrack for the game complete with MIDI-inspired music… And synthesizers!
The Pixelverse: While Rad and Dusty are a great team, only Dusty can enter the electrified Pixelverse — a dangerous spacetime-breaking region that exists behind the game world. Dusty enters the Pixelverse when necessary to repair glitches in the running game world, allowing both Rad & Dusty to continue their journey.
Classic Easter Eggs: The game features hard-to-find collectibles in sometimes even harder-to-find classic secret rooms. Use your precision platforming skills to collect ’em all.
GameFly does not offer a release date for Rad Rogers on Switch. We’ll let you know when THQ Nordic has something official to share.
