The gorgeous “metroguelite” A Robot Named Fight! – where players fight the pulsating moon-sized orb of flesh, eyes, mouths, and reproductive organs known as the Megabeast – is heading to the Nintendo eShop and Windows Store next Thursday, April 26!
Released on Steam in 2017, A Robot Named Fight! has gathered a loyal fan base with almost 200 “very positive” ratings on Valve’s platform and high scores from the press as well. Published by Hitcents, the Switch version will have 100% feature parity with the current Steam build – including seeded runs, more interesting ways to combine weapons and power-ups, and even a new (secret) ending!
Combining the best of the Metroidvania and roguelite genres, A Robot Named Fight!’s monstrous creatures, huge item variety, quirky writing, co-op gameplay, and synthwave soundtrack all hit the sweet spot between retro and modern platformers.
Thousands of years have passed since the mechanical gods ascended and left the lower-order robots to cultivate the world. Unfortunately for those left behind, something forgotten and terrible is stirring among the stars: the Megabeast, which is unleashing its children onto the world like an unstoppable plague.
In A Robot Named Fight!, you play as a lone robot tasked with retrieving wartime artifacts deep beneath the surface of your planet. Explore a procedurally-generated underground world filled with fleshy monsters and randomized power-ups. Stay sharp, and try not to die – or you’ll have to start from scratch. To face the Megabeast, you must unearth artifacts that upgrade your abilities and open new paths. Delve beneath the surface, discover the lost history of robot civilization – and explode the Megabeast once and for all!
