Playdius’ Boiling Bolt shmup game is coming to Nintendo Switch! An indie game originally designed for PC, you play as June, a woman combating a mysterious organization with the help of a crystal-powered ship.  Featuring multiplayer, Arcade Mode, and anime-inspired cutscenes, Boiling Bolt is a flashy shooter set in 2.5D; in other words, 3D visuals within a 2D environment. As seen in the game’s Switch trailer below, it does look mighty beautiful; see for yourself!

Winner of IndieDB’s 2016 Indie of the Year, the game was initially made available via closed beta and was eventually released for Windows, but the release date for the Switch version remains unknown. The game is also set for release on Steam this year.
