Today, developer Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team and publisher Adult Swim Games released the launch trailer for their action platformer, Rise & Shine, which launches tomorrow, January 13th, onto the Xbox One and PC at the price point of $14.99 USD.
First time hearing about Rise & Shine? No worries — here’s an overview of everything you need to know:
Combining elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle-platformers, Rise & Shine is a skill-testing tribute to everything we love about video games, injected with just the right amount of humor.
To save Gamearth, Rise must work closely with his new partner Shine, whose add-ons, special bullets, and loud-mouthing are key to getting them both safely across each meticulously hand-drawn level. Pack your strategy and timing enhancing gear, and get ready to repel the Nexgen invaders to bring the fun back to Gamearth!
Personally, this is the first game of 2016 I’m excited about and getting. Further, I think it has potential to be one of those good ol’ “early game of the year contenders,” which hardly ever means anything, but alas I think it could be just that. But I might be wrong, but hey, at least I don’t have to wait long to find out.
