E3 2018: Burnstar Interview and Nintendo Switch Gameplay

Nerve Software's action puzzle game Burnstar is coming to Nintendo Switch, and Shacknews has the inside scoop.


We here at Shacknews just can't get enough Nintendo Switch games. Nintendo's hybrid handheld is good for home gaming and great for portable gaming, making it an ideal match for everything from first-person shooters to simple puzzlers. One game that's about to make the jump from PC to Nintendo Switch is Burnstar, the action puzzle title from Nerve Software. Shacknews had a chance to sit down with Todd Hollenshead, business manager at Nerve Software, to learn more about the game, its latest Switch-based features, and the perks of developing with Unity and working with Nintendo.

So what's new in the Nintendo Switch version of Burnstar? For starters, there are 21 new bonus levels, 29 new music tracks, and new visual themes. The Switch version will keep the game's full support for local cooperative play, and all the rest of the game's numerous levels and characters will be present.

Burnstar is still available fior download right now for PC via Steam, but Nintendo Switch players will be able to pick up the game for Big N's handheld when it releases later this month on June 29.
