Toronto-based developer Asteroid Base has announced that couch co-op action game, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, is poised to release on Nintendo Switch on October 3, 2017. The award-winning title will only be available digitally via the eShop, and will cost $14.99 USD.

Jamie Tucker, Co-Founder of Asteroid Base, says Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a “perfect fit” for the new piece of Nintendo hardware, and that when the team first heard about the Switch, they knew they wanted to bring the game to the platform.

At the moment, no Switch-specific features have been announced.

First released in 2015 for PC, Mac, Linux, and Xbox One, and then PS4 in 2016, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a self-described frantic one (you can play by yourself with an AI spacemate) to four player couch co-op action space shooter, where you explore a colorful galaxy via a neon battleship that you control together by manning turrets, lasers, shields, and thrusters.

The game notably features customizable and upgradable ships and randomized level layouts that offer a fresh-ish playthrough every time you play.

Below, you can check out a new trailer which accompanied today’s announcement.

Important to note: It is only via teamwork that you can hope to triumph over the evil forces of Anti-Love and rescue kidnapped space bunnies. This is very, very important to note. Bold important.
