Skybound Games and Toylogic have revealed that their “fun and frantic” co-op shooter Glitch Busters: Stuck On You will release on Nintendo Switch later this year.
Set in the far-flung future, after the AI that populates the internet comes under attack from mysterious viruses it is up to a squad of Glitch Busters to stop them from infecting every AI in the virtual world.
Whether playing with friends in split-screen co-op, teaming up online or working with “intuitive” bots, you must work together to exterminate the viruses in six “inventive and colourful” worlds that are packed with missions and stages.
With hordes of enemies to defeat, you will come to reply on unlockable weapons and power-ups to help save the world – whether that be magnetic abilities that can attract and repel or wacky weapons like the freeze guns that can hold foes in place.
“Toylogic was built around the idea of creating memorable gaming experiences that push the boundaries for what the medium can accomplish,” explains Toylogic president Yoichi Take. “Glitch Busters: Stuck on You is the result of our team working hard to truly understand what makes a great co-operative game and produce something that stands out within the industry. We’re delighted with what we’ve accomplished and can’t wait for players to soon join forces to battle the evil virus threat.”
Skybound Games co-CEO Ian Howe adds: “Toylogic has an incredible pedigree in the video game industry, having supported development on a number of AAA titles over the last 15 years. Now we have the pleasure to work with them on one of their most exciting releases yet, an incredibly original take on the co-op shooter that will thrill and delight gamers of all ages.”
Glitch Busters: Stuck On You will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Winter 2022.
