Developer Ben Hickling has announced that Ex-Zodiac, a fast-paced low-poly 3D rail shooter, is heading to Switch. The game will be out sometime in late 2023.

Ex-Zodiac is a shmup inspired by classics of the early 90’s, chief among them being Star Fox. In Ex-Zodiac, join protagonist Kyuu as she fights to free the worlds of the Sanzaru Star System, overrun by the intergalactic terrorist organization known as Zodiac.

The game uses a retro, colorful, low-poly visual style across its 12 main levels, plus secret areas and side-paths. Get ready to take on major bosses at the end of each level, with each piloted by a member of the Zodiac. Finally, enjoy a 16-bit style soundtrack by +TEK combining FM and wavetable synthesis.

There’s no word on pricing or file size for Ex-Zodiac at this time, but we’ll share those details with you when they become available.

It does run at a better framerate though, looks fun, the bike stage could be interesting.
