Jet Lancer Launches May 12 On Windows PC, Mac, and Nintendo Switch

Jet Lancer

Armor Games Studios have announced the release date for their upcoming aerial arcade shooter, Jet Lancer, along with it coming to Nintendo Switch alongside Windows PC, and Mac.

In Jet Lancer, players are a mercenary piloting a highly advanced jet fighter. Defend Root City in high-speed dogfights against enemy ace pilots and gigantic mechanical superweapons.

An emailed press release (along with revealing other Windows PC and Mac distribution platforms) describes how players can upgrade and customize their planes.

This is to encourage experimentation, and balancing risk and reward to progress through the single-player campaign “that wouldn’t look out of place in games like Advance Wars and Fire Emblem.”

The game also has options such as damage modifiers, anti-fatigue control toggles, and the ability to reduce screenshake and screen-flash. These ensure the game can be accessible to players of any skill level, and to help the game look best to them.

Even so, the game has “a near-limitless skill ceiling,” and a New Game+ Mode.

You can find the release date trailer below.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:


Jet Lancer is a high-velocity aerial combat shooter where you duel enemy aviators, hunt giant robots, and defy death at supersonic speeds.

You are Ash Leguinn: badass pilot, highly paid mercenary, and flight-school drop out. Your day job is fine – the daily grind of dealing with Sky Pirates pays the bills – but nothing compares to the rush of demolishing a ninety-ton mechanical monstrosity at the speed of sound. And you’ll have your chance. As mechanized weapons converge on Root City, you’ll have to be at the top of your game to survive, and you’ll have to surpass your limits if you want to save the world.


  • Be A Badass: Jet Lancer is easy to learn but hard to master. Precise and responsive controls make you feel like an ACE as you dodge and weave through enemy fire without even a scratch in the paint.
  • Surpass your Limits in Ash’s Story: Make your way from rookie aviator to ACE pilot in a story-driven single player campaign containing 30 missions, 11 bosses, and only 1 chance to save the world.
  • Aggressive New Game Plus: Go higher, further, and faster in Jet Lancer’s New Game Plus mode which features more relentless AI, new attack patterns, and some fancy new upgrades for the LANCE to provide a fresh experience.
  • Choose From an Extensive Arsenal: Customizable loadout with 28 different guns, payloads, and flight components to let you dominate the skies in any way you’d like.
  • Customize with Accessibility Options:We think everyone should have the opportunity to feel like an ACE pilot. To that end we’ve included anti-fatigue control toggles, adjustable dodge windows, an invincibility option, and the ability to disable screenshake and screen flashing.
  • Talking Cat: There’s a talking cat! His name is Lem.

Jet Lancer launches May 12th on Windows PC, Mac (both via GOG, Humble Store, Itch.io, and Steam), and Nintendo Switch.
