Mighty Switch Force announced for eShop

The first 3DS downloadable game from WayForward

Developer WayForward Technologies (of Shantae and Contra 4 fame) has revealed that the latest title they are working on is a new entry in the Mighty series, Mighty Switch Force. In the game you play as a futuristic police officer who is hunting space hooligans in Metroid-like stages.

WayForward’s creative director, Matt Bozon, revealed in Nintendo Power magazine that the platformer will have a unique puzzle mechanic where you can switch blocks in and out of a level and it features enemies such as T. rexes with laser beam eyes and jet pack cats. Who wouldn’t want that?

Bozon also said the game will feature a lot of jumping and shooting with a healthy assortment of block-switching puzzles. The game is expected to be a little shorter than the previous games in the series (Mighty Flip Champs and Mighty Milky Way) but Bozon said the team is going for a more action-packed and refined approach.

No word yet on when it’ll be coming to the 3DS’s eShop. Remember, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge for DSiWare never made it to the Australian store, so we can’t take for granted that we’ll be seeing Mighty Switch Force. Fingers crossed though.
