Curve Digital and FuturLab have announced that Velocity 2X will release on Nintendo Switch next month, a game that blends pulse-pounding 2D action platforming and fast-paced vertical-scrolling shmup action.
It first debuted on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2014, and this direct to Velocity now comes to a Nintendo platform for the first time.
Velocity 2X follows Lt. Kai Tana, a brave pilot who has found herself stranded a long way from home after getting sucked through a black hole. Discovered and experimented on by an evil alien race called the Vokh, Kai Tana has recently escaped with her Quarp Jet and must outrun her captors.
“As big fans of both arcade shmups and action-platformers, Velocity 2X has always held a special place in our hearts,” explains product manager Cédrine Décoret. “Playing it on the Switch’s pristine, handheld screen, it feels better than ever.”
Velocity 2X will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in August.
