Body-snatch your way through the '80s! Twin-stick shooter 'HyperParasite' launches next week!

Available in Asia & Japan for PlayStation 4 & Nintendo Switch!

Hong Kong - March 26, 2020 – Independent developer and publisher, Eastasiasoft Limited, are pleased to announce that the rogue-lite twin-stick snatch, zap and shoot ‘em up, HyperParasite from developer Troglobytes Games, launches in Asia and Japan on April 2nd (for Nintendo Switch) and April 3rd (for PlayStation®4). HyperParasite will be priced at US$17.99 / HK$ 138 / ¥1980 (incl. tax). A 30% launch discount will be available on both platforms. The Nintendo Switch version is now available for digital pre-load.

HyperParasite is a fresh take on the twin-stick shooter, offering incredibly slick fast-paced action, responsive controls and has more mullets than you can shake a pink neon sock at.

With 60 classes of host, each of which can be snatched and controlled, to take advantage of their unique skills and weaponry. Laced with comedy, a bodacious synth-wave soundtrack and rad retro visuals that drags the player kicking and screaming back to the 80s! HyperParasite is a game full of outrageous and rip-roaring brawling action that throws down the fingerless glove to its challengers.

About HyperParasite:

HyperParasite is a rogue-lite twin-stick shooter/brawler that never plays the same twice. Collect and control 60 different characters as the body-snatching alien Parasite with a grudge against humanity. Fight to the top of the food chain: possess the President, push the Big Red Button and one-up the human race.

Features: 

  • Relentless top-down, shoot ‘em up action! Being able to snatch the bodies of nearly every weapon - wielding homosapien you encounter ensures bullet hell almost never ceases.
  • Intelligent zapping! A happy trigger-finger alone won’t suffice; 60 different character classes, host-specific abilities and a skill-based progression system means you’ll be working to one-up the human race even without bullets.
  • Extreme level re-playability! 13 procedurally generated levels, multiple game-play objectives, grueling waves of enemies and 5 deranged bosses, all while the possibility of perma-death looms; prepare to die. A lot.
  • Nostalgia …perpetuated by a unique 3D-pixelated art style, absurdly bright neons, obnoxious styling and robotic synthesizer sounds. It’s the roaring 80s alright, with a dash of dystopia.
