Curve Digital is bringing FuturLab’s shmup and platformer hybrid, Velocity 2X, to Nintendo Switch on Sept. 20.
Marking the first time a Velocity title will be released on a Nintendo platform, Velocity 2X follows the story of Lt. Kai Tana. She's a brave pilot who has found herself stranded a long way from home after getting sucked through a black hole. Discovered and experimented on by an evil alien race called the Vokh, Kai Tana has recently escaped with her “Quarp Jet” and now must outrun her captors. The game originally released in 2014 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
“This is the ultimate version of Velocity 2X,” said FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden. “On Nintendo Switch, players will get the complete, no-compromise home console/PC version with all the graphical bells and whistles, whether playing at home on their TV at 1080p and 60fps, or on the Switch screen at 720p and 60fps.”
Velocity 2X is rated "E10+" by the ESRB.
