Rising Star Games has teamed up with Ground Shatter to release RICO on Nintendo Switch, which promises to deliver an arcade-paced, action-movie inspired, sensory onslaught.

RICO stands for the “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” Act, which is a United States federal law relating to criminal organisations. But, that doesn’t matter, as you kick down doors, shoot bad guys, and exploit the element of surprise to gain the upper hand against overwhelming odds.

This cooperative multiplayer first-person shooter will see you partner up with a friend in local couch co-op or online, to then blaze your way through an ever-changing series of procedurally generated levels. As a pair of loose-cannon police offers, you are given 24 hours to crack a case as part of an elite organised crime task force.

With daily challenges to encourage you to keep coming back for more, you will unlock new weapons, weapon customisations, and traits, which will modify, enhance, and dramatically alter your abilities.

“With their worldwide reach and extensive routes to market, Rising Star Games is a shining example of what a modern games publisher can be, and we are delighted that RICO forms part of what looks to be a bold and hugely exciting 2018 line-up,” shared Ground Shatter game director James Parker.

Rising Star Games managing director Martin Defries, adds: “We’re excited to welcome the explosive action and bullet-time fueled gameplay of RICO into Rising Star Games’s slate of releases for 2018. It’s great to be working together, ‘buddy cop’-style with esteemed developer Ground Shatter, in order to bring the visceral and frenetic action of RICO to a global audience.”

RICO will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in autumn 2018.
