Strictly Limited Games has announced its latest physical release as the shoot ‘em up Dranius, coming to the Nintendo Switch this Winter!
Firstly, check out the trailer for the game below:
The newest shoot ‘em up to sear its way into the forefront, DRAINUS, is ready to make an impact. DRAINUS is from Ladybug, a small independent and acclaimed Japan developer. DRAINUS is their first game based on an original IP and will be published by Strictly Limited Games in cooperation with WSS Playground and PLAYISM. Release will be digital and the physical boxed on Nintendo Switch will be published by Strictly Limited Games.
Gameplay is key and DRAINUS’ main draw is the mechanic of the titular spaceship ‘Drainus’, which allows it to absorb light energy attacks and then use the energy harvested for devastating counterattacks. Using these mechanics strategically is the key to clearing the game and performing well.
DRAINUS is clearly aiming to bring the Shoot ‘em Up genre to the next level with unusual twists to a classic space shooter to offer players a whole new shooter experience.
Not only are Strictly Limited Games bringing a physical edition of the game to collector’s, but there will also be a collector’s edition on offer.
