Kero Blaster shoots onto Switch today

From the creators of the Cave Story!

PLAYISM, in collaboration with Pixel, the creators behind the beloved Cave Story, have today released their new title Kero Blaster for Nintendo Switch! For those who don’t know, Kero Blaster follows the story of a bipedal frog who is 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. Kero Blaster also features:

  • Stunning pixel graphics.
  • A challenging game play with different difficulty settings.
  • An unlockable “Zangyou mode”.
  • Challenging mechanics and traps.
  • Boss Rush mode.
  • Fantastic bosses at the end of every stage

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 slect 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.

If you loved Cave Story and are craving more of the 2D side-scrolling action, be sure to head over to the Nintendo eShop where you can find it for $9.99 / £8.99.
