It would be difficult to set out to make a game like Contra and not have it look exactly like Contra, so why not just lean into it instead? That’s pretty much what Blazing Chrome is setting out to do and it was obvious when we first took note of it at PAX East earlier this year, but every new trailer completely reinforces it. The developer has announced that you’ll be running and gunning in early 2019 and have officially announced a Switch version will come in tow.
Check out the new environments trailer below.
Developer JoyMasher has announced that the game will be releasing in early 2019, just missing its 2018 target date. However, this does give time for the newly-announced Switch release to launch alongside the other versions, so you can take it on the go from day one.
Blazing Chrome releases on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC early next year.
