Assault Android Cactus Gets a Switch Port on March 8

Indie developer Witch Beam has announced a Nintendo Switch port for Assault Android Cactus+.

The enhanced version of the 2015-released shooter is coming to the hybrid console on March 8th, for $19.99. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the twin-stick shooter.

Pre-orders are available now over on the eShop and include a 25% discount. Language options include: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese language options.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Assault Android Cactus+ is an enhanced edition of the acclaimed twin-stick shooter, bringing everything Cactus is known for to the Switch including the vibrant roster of playable characters with unique loadouts, transforming stages, and smooth 60 frames-per-second mayhem. This edition adds new character costumes, aim assist options and Campaign+, a completely reimagined version of the 25-stage campaign.

Campaign+ caters to experienced players by rebuilding each stage with new enemy waves and dynamic elements, utilizing the game’s full arsenal of enemies for new encounters and amped-up boss fights. Veterans and newcomers alike will be able to go deeper than ever before and have even more online leaderboards to conquer.

Thanks to the Switch, Cactus+ is not only playable on the go, but single Joy-Con support makes it a snap to play co-op anywhere. With aim assist, players focus on dodging, shooting, and managing weapons, retaining the heart of the experience even without twin joysticks. Aim assist also works with dual Joy-Con and Pro Controllers making it ideal for players learning the ropes or anyone wanting to give their thumb a rest. It’s the perfect equalizer for gathering friends for up to four-player couch co-op.

Boss Rush and Infinity Drive give determined players even more action, while Daily Drive gives them one shot at setting a worldwide high score in a newly generated level. Developer Commentary, Jukebox, and Sound Test modes are joined by a new Movie Gallery for revisiting cinematics. Unlock new costumes for all nine Androids and earn credits to enable EX options like first person mode, AI players and the newly re-balanced MEGA Weapons that are more destructive than ever.

Assault Android Cactus has been available for Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
