Playism announced that the Edelweiss developed 2.5D action mech shooter Astebreed will launch digitally on Nintendo Switch via the eShop on November 8.
Originally released on PlayStation 4 and PC, Astebreed is a shoot ’em up game where players will pilot mechs and face hordes of enemies while weaving through bullets. The game features a full cast of characters who have different shooting patterns and abilities that players will be able to utilize. Additionally, the game has a soundtrack that many fans of the series enjoy, myself included.
