The Nintendo Switch has a handful of heavy rock-themed titles, and another is blending eardrum-bursting sound with some old-fashioned arcade shooting. SturmFront – The Mutant War: Übel Edition, is heading to the eShop this week on 2nd April, and will be priced at €9.99 / $9.99 / £8.99.
The story may not be important in a game where you shoot everything and cause numerous explosions, but it gives a taste of the vibe that developer Andrade Games is targeting.
A flawless cyborg engineered for war, players will become Siegfried von Hammerstein, a unique semi-organic battle unit, as they fight their way through a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a newly emerged mutant menace.
It’s 1984 and the end of the world as we know it. A great plague wrought by human hands has devoured all known life and puked forth a myriad of uncontrollable evil mutants. With the human race nearing extinction, Dr. Hartmuth Griesgram, a heartbroken and eccentric scientist who is responsible for the creation of synthetic humans, activates a prototype killing machine as humanity’s last hope: the prototype SturmFront battle unit.
For those that like to have physical copies of everything, publisher Red Art Games will have a limited number of 999 copies over on its own store, but unfortunately this appears to be for PS4 rather than Nintendo Switch.
Are you tempted to give this one a whirl?
