Kero Blaster Heads To Nintendo Switch On August 23

PLAYISM and Studio Pixel (Cave Story creator) have officially announced Kero Blaster’s upcoming release on Nintendo Switch.

Kero Blaster is scheduled to launch August 23, 2018 on Nintendo eShop for USD9.99. Pre-orders are now live on the North American eShop. Europeans can pre-purchase the game from August 16 onward. Languages supported are English, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Portuguese, and Russian.

Check out the trailer and details below.


You play a bipedal frog employed by the mysterious start-up company “Cat & Frog Inc.”. Fend off enemies seeking to stop you and overcome the challenging landscape as you head toward your destination.

When you start the game, you’ll likely be surprised by your skimpy amount of life and your crappy weapon. And when the frog runs out of life, he “enters the hospital” and has to restart from the beginning of the stage. But you can keep collecting and saving up money to go “shopping” to increase your life and carefully select powered-up weapons to take down enemies you couldn’t defeat before. The further you get, the stronger you can feel yourself becoming – and it feels good.

The characters appearing in between stages are the game’s other charm point. You’ll meet your coworker, who is a cat (for some reason), your president (also a cat), and an office lady of indeterminate species. They work like us, slog through overtime like us, complain, get chewed out, and even comfort each other, just like us.
