NIS America have announced Mad Rat Dead for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, along with a release date.

Developed by Nippon Ichi Software; this rhythm-based action platformer tasks you with controlling a recently deceased rat, coming back to life for revenge. Players move and attack to the rat’s heartbeat, but can briefly rewind time if things go wrong.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

You can find the rundown (via the video description) below.

“You’ve got one day to live and a big score to settle in Mad Rat Dead! Combining elements of action platformers and rhythm games with a cartoon-meets-punk art style, this crazy caper has you guiding a newly-resurrected rat in his quest for vengeance. Move in time with the music, smash through hordes of enemies, and rewind to escape hairy situations!”

Mad Rat Dead launches October 30th in North America and Europe, and November 6th in Australia for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
