Back in May, Cave Story creator Pixel confirmed his next major game, Kero Blaster, would be heading to the Nintendo Switch over the summer of 2018. Now, we have a confirmed date.

As announced via the StudioPixel.jp Twitter account, the game is available to pre-purchase in the US and Japan from today, with a release date of August 23rd globally.
 


 
While Cave Story took influence from Metroidvanias, Kero Blaster is a more straight forward affair with levels and bosses. That said it still focuses heavily on shooting down enemies, complete with a very simplistic but cute artstyle.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
