Many 3DS owners are likely familiar with Gunman Clive, a 2D action game with a Wild West theme that caught worldwide attention after it rose to the top of the Japanese 3DS eShop charts and was noted for its relatively inexpensive price ($1.99 USD) when compared to the game's high quality.
The game’s developer, Bertil Hörberg, went on to develop a sequel and, more recently, the Gunman Clive HD Collection, which just released on Switch in January. Now Hörberg has revealed what his next project is, a game called Mechstermination Force.
Like the Gunman Clive titles, this is also an action game though this time it has a unique twist: the gameplay is comprised of boss rush fights against giant robots. Hörberg describes it as a “mix of Contra and Shadow of the Colossus” and also mentions that the game is quite a lot bigger than the Gunman Clive titles, adding that this is the first of his projects where he’s hired additional people to help.
Mechstermination Force is currently scheduled to release on the Nintendo Switch this Spring. Hörberg recently mentioned that the game has entered lotcheck (one of the last processes before a game releases, which involves certification) so expect a release date soon.
