Looking for your next pixel-styled adventure to take on the go? Well, publisher Drageus Games and developer Cascadia Games will soon be introducing Switch players to a new realm underneath the lunar surface!
The companies have announced that Moon Raider will be heading to Nintendo Switch on 23 April 2021. The 2D action-platformer sees players in control of a young girl searching the moon for a cure to save her ailing mother – with 10 beautiful environments to explore, 11 epic boss battles to tackle, and even local co-op included in the mix!
We’ll report back if we hear more in the future. For now, here’s a past trailer and more details below:
Ava is the young daughter of the brilliant-but-aging scientist Dr. Cavor and Selene, the former queen of the moon. As a selenite, Selene’s life depends on the special energy only moon gems can provide. With none left and time running out, Dr. Cavor enlists his daughter to raid the moon of as many gems as she can find!
Ava must survive the treacherous catacombs deep beneath the surface of the moon. Her enemies, a legion of corrupt aliens that now rule the moon with force, are far less primitive than they first appear. Their world is full of terrifying technology, deadly traps, and armed soldiers at the ready. Ava soon realizes that the only way to save her mother is to save the moon from itself.
