Eastasiasoft and developer 2Dream Corporation announced today that Xenocider, a third-person rail shooter, is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Back in 2016, Xenocider was on Kickstarter to launch on Dreamcast, 3DS, and PC, but it failed to raise enough funds and did not go anywhere afterward. Thankfully, we have learned today that the game has been resurrected, and it will be coming to the Switch sometime in 2022.
Check out the original Kickstarter trailer from 2016:
Blast through corrupted worlds in this HD remaster of a cult classic!
Take the role of Xara, a cyborg from a remote planet transformed into the ultimate weapon of mass destruction thanks to her superhuman strength, speed and combat prowess in the most extreme environments. Blast through wild, corrupted worlds to eradicate all life and take down menacing bosses to reduce entire civilizations to ash.
Xenocider is a third-person rail shooter inspired by arcade classics and presented in nostalgic 32-bit style! Hover into battle, jump, dodge and take aim at swarms of enemies as they try to put an end to Xara’s extermination mission. Customize abilities between stages by equipping different “Xenopods” to float at Xara’s side and enhance her firepower!
