Blackwind is a new sci-fi action-platformers will blow up the switch next year

update: It was revealed that Blackwind will be released a little later than originally planned, confirming the new release date of January 20th.

A new trailer has also been released that you can check out above.


Original article (Thursday, July 8, 2021 11:00 BST): Blowfish Studios and developer Drakkar Dev have announced that Blackwind is aiming for a release on Switch and other platforms in the fourth quarter of 2021.

This game puts the player in the position of James Hawkins, a sci-fi action platformer, an “impossible” hero, and Medusa’s only hope for the planet-42. The planet is being attacked by a horde of aliens. As you can imagine, it’s up to you to take advantage of Blackwind, the ship’s convenient AI system, to stay on the front lines to combat alien threats.

An unlikely pair of heroes takes action as a human mining colony on Planet Medusa-42 fights an invasion by a terrifying alien known as Lakunos. A teenager, James Hawkins, who has not been formal trained, wears a battle frame mecha suit. Pushing back Lakunos, saving the colony, he decided to find his father James and Blackwind, the perceptual AI of the battle frame, thrown into a battle that Medusa 42 had never seen before.

Use melee attacks, ranged fire, and powerful special attacks to cut through alien insect types, put on suits, and enter the battle. Grow Hawkins from a rookie to a veteran warrior and upgrade your battle frame skills across three forked passes. Escape the danger and run an energy blade slash to turn your suit into a death machine or use special powers to end the straggler before launching missiles at incoming enemies. Launch a trusted drone to access an area that is too small for the impressive frame of the battle frame to reach.

We will travel through various places such as deserts, snow-covered mountains, and forests. This can be done alone or with a friend of the local co-operative. When you go to the co-op route, one player controls the mecha suit and the other player uses the drone to attack.

When you arrive later this year, you’ll be able to buy it at the e-shop for $ 19.99. be interested? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
