ORBITAL BULLET 360° Platform Shooter Now Out for Nintendo Switch

Gear up and prepare for battle, it’s time to take the sensationally-cyclic vibrant rogue-lite shooter, Orbital Bullet, on the go! Earlier this week, heralded indie publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer SmokeStab announced the global release of the critically acclaimed 360° action-platformer on Nintendo Switch. Featuring fluid, fast-paced gameplay and procedurally generated enemies and level elements, Orbital Bullet players can now bring out the big guns and show the Dread Corporation who’s boss anytime, anywhere.

Orbital Bullet on Switch transforms the game into a full “pick-up-and-play” experience, making its high-octane gameplay and intricate skill tree mechanics a portable endeavor. Melding the tried-and-true, highly addictive rogue-lite formula with the unique twist of a 360° rotating level design, Orbital Bullet sees players battling through unforgiving alien worlds in the pursuit of freeing them from the clutches of the nefarious Dread Corporation. Keep the rhythm going and the action flowing, as you take on waves of enemies who are dead-set on making sure you don’t live to see another day.

Orbital Bullet Key Features:

  • Nothing ‘Rosie’ About This Ring: A unique 2.5D ring-shaped world offers a one-of-a-kind setting fresh for the genre with rotating 360° level design. Make the most satisfying long-range curved snipes you’ve ever made, or blast and shred enemies with a load from the Hyper Shotgun.
  • Bullets and Body Mods: No rogue-lite is complete without all sorts of nifty upgrades, mods, skill trees, and heavy weapons to keep your sci-fi fustigator strapped and ready for action; enhance your character’s vigor by unlocking permanent upgrades such as the Combo System, the Medi-Backpack, or a stronger starting weapon.
  • Stay Classy: Four meticulously crafted classes can be unlocked by solving challenging puzzles and include epic abilities per class, such as the turret-wielding Engineer or the fire-fueled Hellion.
  • Intense Arcade Action: A game that defines “one more run”, Orbital Bullet throws you into the fray with fierce, frenetic action. Jump, dodge, and shoot your way through hordes of enemies as you wind your way around several beautiful and unique biomes.
