Contra, but with spiders and dinosaurs!
While we don’t have an official release date for WayForward’s run-‘n’-gun shooter Spidersaurs, we are inching ever closer. Even better, we know the game’s release isn’t far off at all.
WayForward took to Twitter to confirm that Spidersaurs is slated to hit Switch sometime in July 2022. We still don’t have information on pricing or file size, but those details should see release soon.
Inspired by classic action games and Saturday morning cartoons from days gone by, this original property from the dev team behind Contra 4 pits one or two players against a man-eating, half-spider, half-dinosaur mutant menace — the Spidersaurs! Though originally created by INGESTCorp as a way to solve global hunger, the tangy food source with a bite decides to bite back, so it’s up to punk rocker Victoria and officer-in-training Adrian to run, jump, climb, and shoot their way through multiple levels of over-the-top, high-octane mayhem. Armed with an assortment of character-specific weapons (including Victoria’s Metal Spread and Electronica Chain and Adrian’s Flame Thrower and Rebound Breaker) and special Spidersaur powers, players must navigate the INGESTCorp facility and put a stop to the mindless army of genetically engineered monsters.
