'Rise & Shine' (ALL) Comes To Nintendo Switch

by Rainier on Feb. 5, 2018 @ 12:43 p.m. PST

Combining elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle-platformers, Rise & Shine is a skill-testing tribute to video games, injected with just the right amount of humor.

Vulnerability stacks, debuffs, and death rates are multiplying. Ever since the awful space grunts of Nexgen attacked Gamearth, the video game world took a turn for the worse. But Rise and his talking gun Shine have it on their minds to restore Gamearth to its prior-save-state glory―no matter how many respawns it takes.

To save Gamearth, Rise must work closely with his new partner Shine, whose add-ons, special bullets, and loud-mouthing are key to getting them both safely across each meticulously hand-drawn level. Pack your strategy and timing enhancing gear, and get ready to repel the Nexgen invaders to bring the fun back to Gamearth!

While not giving any specific release date yet, developer Super Mega Team has revealed that it is working on porting Rise & Shine to the Nintendo Switch.

Rise & Shine is a true "think and gun" that combines elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers to create a new blend of strategy and viscera. Switch between Shine's add-ons to solve puzzles that redefine what bullets can do. Guide projectiles through intricate mazes, electrify damaged equipment to discover new pathways, and juggle 8-bit fruit because why not?

Don't let the cute character models fool you, saving Gamearth won't be easy. Prepare to dash flurries of missiles and avoid unseen traps as you fight to prevent its destruction. It's going to take all you've got to stay alive in the face of lethal robot armadas, enormous bosses, giant death wheels, and (of course) brainthirsty zombies. You're not gettin' through this in one piece, kiddo.

Enter a world where every level is a single, continuous work of art. Each level is composed of hand drawn illustrations with multiple parallax scroll layers so every forward step is new; no tiling or repeated elements. This meticulous attention to detail allows each frame to flow seamlessly from one to the next, a quality you'll wish you had on your 20th respawn.
