“Gato Roboto” Game Announced for Switch and PC

Just recently announced by publisher Devolver Digital and from developer Doinksoft is a new type of “CatMechtroidvania” game coming to the Nintendo Switch and PC in 2019.  The game’s trailer begins with a black and white cartoon animation of a cat and a spaceship flying through space.  After crash landing on an unknown planet, the cat is shown exploring the planet’s different areas until it jumps into a mechanical suit and gets some serious upgrades.

The game appears to be heavily influenced by older Metroid titles, but has a very unique art style that shines through.  A very interesting concept indeed, it will be interesting to see how it unfolds.  Depending on the price point, Gato Roboto might be a day one purchase for me based on my love of cats and exploratory 2D shooters.  Gato Roboto gets two paws up for their trailer so far.

Take a look at the game trailer to see for yourself:
