It’s just the first day of E3 2021, and announcements have been flooding in rapidly. Following the Guerilla Collective Showcase and Ubisoft’s Forward conference, Devolver Digital announced a bunch of new games during its Devolver Max Pass Plus event- that’s certainly a mouthful. One such game is Dionksoft’s upcoming Demon Throttle.
Demon Throttle is a bullet-hell shooter with stylized 8-bit graphics. The trailer, which you can check out below, shows some incredibly stylish cinematics, reminiscent of Hideo Kojima’s Policenauts. The game’s story revolves around a vampiress and a gunslinger on a revenge mission against a demon.
Demon Throttle will be a physical-only game, releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in 2022. Pre-orders are live on Special Reserve Games’ website. With the games industry steadily moving into an all-digital era, Doinksoft and Devolver Digital’s decision to go the physical-only route is certainly questionable, particularly in light of scalpers selling consoles and physical games at extraneous prices.
