Ultimate Games and Korgorus have announced that Dark Gravity is in development for Nintendo Switch.
Taking inspiration from classic Japanese shooters like Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga, Dark Gravity is set in a futuristic reality after World War 5.
You play as a pilot “whose fate is thrown into a whirlwind of events,” setting out to conquer a non-linear campaign full of shooting and destruction.
There are 17 “highly-diversified missions,” 34 bosses, and eight fighter jets, which can be expanded from the resources that you collect.
“The project alludes to classic Japanese shooters from years ago. Among the inspiration behind Dark Gravity are, e.g. Ikaruga, Radiant Silvergun and Zero Gunner,” explains Korgorus founder Rafał Szewczyk.
“Of course, there are here unique features that will make this title stand out from other productions. It is not only about stylized low poly graphics but an intriguing story and the large possibilities of crafting and expanding the fighter jets.
“The difficulty level will be very important – the game at the highest level will be significantly different from the normal level. The higher the level, the more the challenges, new enemies, new bosses and additional secrets.
“Importantly, there are also big differences concerning the fighter jets. Each of them will have its own unique character and the weaponry can be adapted to your own preferences. All this will additionally increase the life of Dark Gravity.”
Dark Gravity will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q4 2020.
