Indie Rhythm Shooter “Aaero: Complete Edition” Getting a Physical Release on Nintendo Switch
Indie game developer Mad Fellows recently announced that their rhythm-based rail-shooter Aaero will soon get a physical release on Nintendo Switch. (Can we start calling this genre a “Rez-like”?)
Aaero: Complete Edition will be released thanks to Strictly Limited Games, and will include all of the game’s DLC packs. In addition to the Limited Edition package ($33.99, 2,200 copies), there will also be a Special Limited Edition ($56.99, 1,800 copies) with a number of extras packed in:
- Special Limited Edition Box
- Colorful Game Manual
- Stylish spaceship acrylic standee
- EDM-festival-style wristband
- EDM-festival-style ticket (replica, individually numbered)
- EDM-concert-style poster (DIN A3)
- Aaero logo fabric patch
- Bottle opener
Here’s the official breakdown of Aaero from Mad Fellows:
Speed through stunning, futuristic environments in a stylish spacecraft, tracing ribbons of light that visualize the EDM songs while evading obstacles, eliminating approaching enemies and overcoming epic boss battles. The game controls like a twin-stick shooter with the left stick controlling the ship, which has to grind along the musical ribbon and the right stick for targeting enemies. If you play well, your score multiplier will build up and you can chase that high score on the leaderboard, for an extra dose of adrenaline.
Pilot your spacecraft through dynamic environments, negotiating obstacles and battling enemies and monstrous boss creatures, all synced to a banging soundtrack.
Experience a unique sensation of speed and tunnel-vision as the levels warp and twist around you, perfectly combining music, gameplay and visuals.
Vibe with licensed music from superstars of the EDM genre, including Noisia, Flux Pavilion, Katy B, Neosignal, Astronaut, Barely Alive and many more.
Soar through 21 different levels, each painstakingly crafted to match the music.
Four game modes – Normal, Advanced, Master, and Chill-out (a relaxed, practice-focused mode).
Aaero: Complete Edition for Nintendo Switch includes all additional DLC content in one package: the 1000DaysWasted: Drum & Bass Pack, the Monstercat Pack as well as the Comet, Phaser, and Sol ship skins.
Pre-orders for both the Limited Edition and Special Limited Edition packages of Aaero: Complete Edition have already begun via the Strictly Limited Games website.
