The 1970s crime film pixel-art game arrives this year!
In collaboration with Good Shepherd Entertainment, Italo Games have announced their debut title Milanoir is coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2018. Milanoir’s pixel art aesthetic paints the unforgiving city of Milan in bright and bloody detail, while a funky 1970s style soundtrack further captures the turbulent energy of the era. Sneak, choke and shoot through the violent criminal underworld on the hunt for the man who framed you. Survive breathtaking vehicle chases and taking out anyone who stands in your way.
The game has been designed with the unique capabilities of the Nintendo Switch in mind, allowing two players to complete its entire action-packed campaign in co-op mode on one console with each player using a Joy‑Con controller. Alongside the announcement, they also released a new gameplay trailer teasing Milanoir’s story of greed, betrayal and revenge. In addition the game also features:
- Crime and Violence: A sordid story of betrayal and greediness. A homage to the Italian masterpiece crime movies of the ’70s such as Caliber 9 and Almost Human. Stay alive, trust no one.
- Funky 1970s Soundtrack and Amazing Pixel Art Graphics: Enjoy the streets of Milan from a new, high-quality pixelated perspective! Immerse yourself in a groovy ’70s atmosphere!
- Arena Mode: There’s no escape from death, but more killings means more time.
Milanoir is also expected to release on Windows PC and other consoles later this year with these versions and also the Nintendo Switch release having no confirmed dates as of yet.
