Rock your week with Double Kick Heroes, coming to the Switch this month.

Some like the smell of napalm in the morning, for socialites like me, I like to kickstart with metal. I’m no alchemist, but an advocate of loud music that must contain these core ingredients: guitars, drums, bass and face-melting solos.

Double Kick Heroes may be the start to the morning I’ve been looking for as you control a mötley crew of metalheads as they steam along in their Gundillac Sheila, blasting away evil hordes in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. 

So, the not-so-distant future?

We hope that you love our game as much as we do and enjoy the kick-ass soundtrack we’ve put together to celebrate all things metal. We can’t wait for people to try out air controls for Nintendo Switch which is a heap load of metallic fun, but please drum responsibly.

With over 50 guitar crunching licks, here are just some of the core features in Double Kick Heroes:

  • A full story mode that’s accompanied by 50 kerranging songs, including the OST Volume 2 Update, by top artists such as Ultra Vomit, Volkorx, Gorod, Jinjer, Carpenter Brut and Gojira!
  • Unique Rhythm shooter mashup with incredibly detailed pixel art
  • 5 difficulty settings to test even the most metal of metal head’s skills
  • Tons of accessibility options
  • USB drum and guitar support on PC and Xbox One
  • Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Alternative Motion Control Methods
    • Air drumming – Joy-Con used as drumsticks, keeping in the rhythm of the game
    • Air beat – Can’t drum? No Problem! Stomp to the beat with your Joy-Con
    • Want the all-out motion-controlled experience and really put that double kick pedal to the metal? Then it’s time to use two sets of Joy-Con, one in your socks and one in your hands and drum and stomp your way through the apocalypse!
