Twin-stick shooter Solstice Chronicles: MIA released on PC last July after developer Ironward successfully crowdfunded the game on Fig. Today, Japanese publisher Circle Entertainment revealed that they are bringing Solstice Chronicles: MIA to Nintendo Switch, and that it will release later this year.
For those of you who don’t know, Solstice Chronicles: MIA is a spiritual successor to Ironward’s last title, The Red Solstice. The game follows a marine who is stranded on a Mars colony infected with the horrible STROL virus, which has made its way over from Earth. In order to escape, players will have to fight through hordes of enemies, using weapons and their drone to their advantage.
The game rewards strategic decisions, giving the drone several different abilities so players can funnel or stun enemies right where they want to. The Nintendo Switch version of the game also features local co-op due to the system’s multiplayer-friendly nature, and is, of course, portable, giving it an edge against the PC version.
To get an idea of how the game looks in-action, you can check out the game’s launch trailer below. Solstice Chronicles: MIA is currently available on PC and will make its way to Nintendo Switch, courtesy of Circle Entertainment, later this year.
