Rising Star Games has released a launch trailer for the upcoming Giga Wrecker Alt.
Developed by Game Freak, the physics based adventure is set to release for the PlayStation 4 on April 30th, Nintendo Switch on May 2nd and Xbox One on May 3rd.
You can read an overview & view the trailer below:
Giga Wrecker Alt.
establishes a 2D world for navigating platforms and solving increasingly
challenging puzzles as players progress to unearth the mysteries of a
sudden invasion that left the world in ruins. As players explore,
they’ll use the abilities of Reika – that game’s main protagonist – to
destroy and reconstruct their surroundings for solving each puzzle and
fighting back against the invaders.
Giga Wrecker Alt. is a
mixture of exploration and physics where players can bring down
towering walls and then use the rubble as a platform for navigating each
level. Reika has a power known as ARCHE (Arms Creating and Handling
Effect) that allows her to construct various weapons from rubble and
scrap. This ability helps her create and navigate platforms, beat traps,
and destroy enemies. Of course, there’s also the ability to crush
enemies with falling objects as well.
Giga Wrecker was
brought to life through Game Freak’s internal “Gear Project” where its
developers are encouraged to come up with intriguing ideas for games
outside the company’s normal. The game also features music by video game
composer, Shinij Hosoe, known for Ridge Racer and Tekken, among many other titles.
