Orbital Bullet Heads to Nintendo Switch

Ready your blasters because the pulse-pounding 360° neon shooter Orbital Bullet is going mobile! That’s right; you will soon be able to purchase Orbital Bullet on the Nintendo Switch. Brought to life by publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer SmokeStab, Orbital Bullet launches preorders with a cracking 25% discount on Nintendo Switch today in Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, and Korea (November 2 for the USA), with a global launch date on November 10.

With a novel, genre-bending rotating level design, Orbital Bullet is a high-octane guns-blazing action-platforming experience. It’ll fit perfectly on the Switch’s play-where-you-are portability.

Orbital Bullet employs exhilarating gameplay mechanics guaranteed to make your trigger finger itch. Navigate through rounds of enemies and procedurally generated environments dead-set on destruction, utilizing a cache of explosive arms and unlocking abilities via a complex skill tree. Bring out the heavy guns and blast your way through swarms of gnarly, randomly generated foes and obstacles. Show the Dread Corporation that you’re not simply going to fall in line – you’re going to go out guns blazing.

Porting this thoroughly engaging adventure to Nintendo Switch transforms the fight into a literal “pick up and play” experience, allowing a new audience to experience the enthralling, synth-soaked world of Orbital Bullet.
