Now that's how you know Nintendo has a hot holiday item. Getting bigtime placement in a holiday commercial for Best Buy. There's another similar spot that also specifically calls out Switch by name. I'd imagine Nintendo is going to have a pretty great holiday season!
We don't have a confirmation on Cryptark coming to the Switch just yet, but it seems like the news is being teased. When one of the sound devs working on the game was asked about a Switch version, and he tweeted back an image of the game's title featuring some Cappy artwork. Seems like a good enough tease to me!
Wondering what Cryptark is all about? Here's the official blurb below.
Cryptark is a 2D roguelike shooter that challenges players with boarding and neutralizing procedurally generated alien starships to earn income for their Privateering enterprise. Purchase improved equipment and weapons to tackle more dangerous targets, but be cautious as failure will result in a loss of investment and profit. The decaying alien arks will defend themselves from intruders with a wide arsenal of cyborg monstrosities, robotics, and security systems, all obstacles that must be surpassed to achieve victory, the destruction of the ship’s central System Core.
Hi friends! Today we’re putting our shopping skills to the test at our employee store at Nintendo HQ in Redmond, Washington. One of the many perks of working at Nintendo is we get to shop at this awesome store which as you can see is packed full of Nintendo goodies. The challenge is we get 15 clues to find 15 items and the person who can find all the items fastest in 10 minutes is the winner. All the items we purchase from the store today will be donated to our local chapter of The Make of Wish Foundation. As always, we hope you enjoy this video and we’ll see you next week!
Thanks to Darig0n for the heads up!
