WayForward bringing Spidersaurs to Switch
Back in 2019, WayForward made Spidersaurs for Apple Arcade. Today, the studio announced that the co-op run-‘n’-gun action game is now planned for new platforms, including Switch.
Here’s what to expect from the title:
Inspired by classic action games and Saturday morning cartoons from days gone by, this original property from the dev team behind Contra 4 pits one or two players against a man-eating, half-spider, half-dinosaur mutant menace — the Spidersaurs! Though originally created by INGESTCorp as a way to solve global hunger, the tangy food source with a bite decides to bite back, so it’s up to punk rocker Victoria and officer-in-training Adrian to run, jump, climb, and shoot their way through multiple levels of over-the-top, high-octane mayhem. Armed with an assortment of character-specific weapons (including Victoria’s Metal Spread and Electronica Chain and Adrian’s Flame Thrower and Rebound Breaker) and special Spidersaur powers, players must navigate the INGESTCorp facility and put a stop to the mindless army of genetically engineered monsters.
•Intense, Saturday-morning-cartoon-style action for one or two players – complete with theme song and epic intro from Powerhouse Animation!
•Two distinct playable characters: punk rocker Victoria and officer-in-training Adrian!
•Unleash awesome firepower – everything from spread guns and lasers to detonating footballs and bass-heavy electronica!
•Explosive environments including volcanoes, jungles, laboratories, and more!
•A menagerie of unique and terrifying Spidersaurs to battle!
•Unlock new abilities as you advance through the INGESTCorp facility!
•Three difficulty settings: Well Done, Medium, and Rare!
•Unlockable arcade mode and speedrun mode!
•From the developers of Contra 4!
WayForward has confirmed that Spidersaurs is adding a new stage, a new true final boss, a new ending, two new difficulty settings, and two new unlockable modes (arcade mode and speedrun mode). There will also be tweaks and balance adjustments, including mid-level checkpoints, rebalanced boss order, and numerous visual improvements.
A trailer for Spidersaurs can be seen below.
Spidersaurs will launch digitally on Switch sometime this spring.
