Zombie Soup

Publisher Astrolabe Games, along with developer AeonSparx Interactive, today announced a Switch version of Zombie Soup. A release is scheduled for August 10, 2023.

The game is a top-down shooter that has previously been in Early Access for PC. Expect the story to follow Ricky, a backpacker who is thrown into an unexpected adventure in an unfamiliar town as he looks to save a kidnapped girl. Learn more about it in the following overview:

Of course the main ingredient would be some awesome top-down twin-stick shooting with a moderate amount of the cliché “damsel in distress” story, add a pinch of puzzle-solving, sprinkle some classic hack-and-slash actions, and stir with all the deadly zombies and god-knows-what creatures, resulting in a satisfyingly intense and exciting gameplay experience!

Welp! Ricky’s graduation trip took an unexpected turn when he arrived in this town, only to discover that its inhabitants had been turned into zombies!??

In order to rescue Ashley, a young girl he had also just met in this unfamiliar town, Ricky strolled into (or is thrown into?) an unexpected adventure, with the help of a mysterious talking skull named MC Skully. Waiting for him will be hordes of zombies, intricately designed challenges, and ridiculously tough bosses with some of the most absurd abilities.

Whether you are a cool-headed sniper, close-quarters combat specialist, or grandmaster explosive engineer, you’ll find plenty of fun in Zombie Soup. We have not only gathered “conventional firearms” such as rifles, sniper rifles, SMGs, shotguns, etc., but also a ton of melee weapons like machetes, axes, daggers… And, of course, there are explosives, too. In addition, we have also designed a wide variety of offbeat, special “weapons” – nail gun, pitching machine, fireworks launcher, and even railgun! So you can be armed to the teeth to brave the horde of zombies.

Ricky will encounter many carefully designed timed challenges throughout the adventure in addition to boss fights. Those challenges are TOUGH! However, upon completion, you will be able to unlock more powerful weapons. Remember, the harder the challenge, the stronger the reward!

We’ve included a trailer for Zombie Soup below.
