Korion and Andrade Games join forces to bring „1917 – The Alien Invasion DX“ to Nintendo Switch this week
Ludwigsburg, 21 June, 2018 — Korion Games published the release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Andrade Games‘ genre jewel “1917 – The Alien Invasion DX”
A feast for nostalgics and a furious ride for beginners of the genre: The newest rendition of this memorization “Bullet Hell” shooter presents itself in a completely new light on the Nintendo Switch. With special adaptations for the portable system and the addition of a cooperative multiplayer, it also packs a lot more content than the initial release two years ago. “I am glad to see 1917 DX on Nintendo Switch – the ultimate Shoot ’em Up machine.“, developer Sebastian De Andrade says, hinting at the origins of the genre on Nintendo platforms.
All levels come with increasing difficulty and with a boss fight at the end – the heart of the game. Different airships, weapon types and special attacks are necessary to successfully stop the alien invasion. The more numerous the masses of annihilated alien adversaries are, the more glorious the victory is scored.
This release on Nintendo Switch is now the definitive edition of the game that both challenges hardcore players and, with the help of the coop mode, also helps beginners entering the genre. “It is a challenging game, but with enough patience and level memorization you will beat it”, Andrade emphasizes. The NIntendo Switch version will be available in Europe, Australia and North America on 22 June, 2018.
