Retro Shmup Iro Hero Blasts Off On Nintendo Switch June 7th

We are excited to announce that we will launch the retro-inspired vertical-scrolling shmup Iro Hero from developer Artax Games worldwide June 7th on Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders will go live on the Nintendo eShop May 31st for $12.99 / €12.99 / £11.69 / ¥1480.

Iro Hero merges the old school pixelated aesthetic of arcade classics with modern gameplay sensibilities such as complex enemy AI, polarity mechanics, and mind-bending puzzle elements. Players will have to shift polarities to avoid color-coded hazards, balance an array of unlockable skills, and make use of reflective surfaces and color areas if they’re to make it through Iro Hero’s 9 action-packed stages intact.

Iro Hero’s story is set in the year 2306, a century after humans learned how to harness their energy to produce electricity. In the intervening years, nefarious enterprises have turned this gift into a curse, with humans reduced to little more than batteries. Following the death of his mother, a teenager named Iro learns that he may be the key to mankind’s freedom.

Features:

  • Experience a color polarity system, with a twist to puzzles and smart decision making.
  • Discover an exciting story that takes place across 9 action-packed levels.
  • Encounter 10 different types of enemies with more than one hundred different behaviors.
  • Defeat 10 final bosses in the vein of classic arcades.
  • Unlock special skills, offering many creative and strategic options.
  • Acquire upgrades to increase the firepower and capabilities of your spaceship.
