Today’s Nintendo eShop news: GoNNER 2 announced for the Nintendo Switch, but also…
- Serial Cleaners
- Source of Madness
- Space Crew
- West of Dead
Raw Fury have announced that GoNNER is to get a sequel later this year, logically called GoNNER 2 (and still developed by Art in Heart).
Here’s the debut trailer:
Journey your way through deep dark chaotic places with unimaginable sparks of colour as you go on a mission to help Death rid a mysterious presence from her lair. Battle crazy bosses, lose your head (a lot), in this messy, cute, fast-paced procedurally-generated platformer.
GoNNER 2 (Switch – eShop) comes out in late 2020 in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
Drawn Distance have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Serial Cleaners, a “sequel” to Serial Cleaner. No release date yet, but here’s two teaser trailers and some details:
Serial Cleaners is a single-player stealth action crime story in which you alternate between playing four eccentric mob cleaners taking on the bloodiest jobs the carefree 1990s had to offer. If you remember the nineties differently, their dirty work is the reason why.
New York City, New Year’s Eve 1999. An unlikely team of four professional cleaners for the mob gathers to drink and reminisce about their careers at the turn of the millenium. As the details of their stories stop matching up, the ugly truth behind their cooperation begins to reveal itself. What starts as a celebration of a decade of shared history slowly turns into a tense and dangerous standoff.
Move without sound. Clean without emotion. Disappear without trace. Take control of one of four characters, four perspectives, four play styles. Street smarts, brute force, cutting-edge tech skills or good old fashioned tricks of the trade: each will allow you to tackle a similar obstacle much differently. Choose your path through the non-linear story by picking the part of the narrative you want to hear next, and then approach each mission as carefully or brazenly as you like. Utilize stealth, exploration and speed as the situation – and your preferred experience – warrants it. Get rid of the bodies and other damning evidence to wipe the decade’s slate clean before the new millenium comes!
Serial Cleaners is an homage to 90s cinema – from Tarantino’s classics through cult crime thrillers to B-movie action favorites and more – Serial Cleaners remixes those familiar places, characters and scenes into its own unique spin on a decade full of brightly colored optimism… and the grime underneath it all. The game soundtrack is composed of many genres that defined the end of the 20th century, from East Coast hip hop to industrial metal and rave. Doesn’t matter if the sound of “your” nineties was defined by the clubs, the festivals, or the radio – we’ve got you covered.
Serial Cleaners (Switch – eShop) comes out in 2021 in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
