Curve Digital announce that it’s bringing FuturLab’s hit shmup hybrid Velocity 2X to Nintendo Switch this August.
Velocity 2X launched to rave reviews in 2014, where it debuted on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4, and won the hearts of critics and players alike, with its inventive blend of pulse-pounding 2D action platforming and fast-paced vertical-scrolling shmup action.
This will be the first time a Velocity title has appeared on a Nintendo platform. A direct successor to Velocity, Velocity 2X follows the story of 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.
With Velocity 2X, FuturLab beat themselves at their own game. Quite simply, Velocity 2X is the best PS4 game to date, and it will take something from another world to take this ship down. Excited to see it coming to Nintendo Switch? Hell yeah!
