If there is one genre I can never get enough of it is mech shooters! Having enjoyed nearly every Armored Core and similar games, I am always excited to see a new one on the horizon! Somehow however I let an interesting looking mech game slide completely under my radar in the form of Project Nimbus. This 2013 Kickstarter game saw release on Steam back in 2017 and I was none the wiser! Now this critically acclaimed game is making its way to the Nintendo Switch on May 16 as Project Nimbus Complete Edition and is set for a simultaneous worldwide release. Check out the trailer below and tell me this doesn’t look awesome!
Project Nimbus takes place in a future version of Earth where there are 3 warring clans that are fighting to control what is left of the planet. Project Nimbus Complete Edition is also set to include previously Japanese exclusive modes for western players to experience for the first time. Project Nimbus Complete Edition also fully supports both hand held and docked modes allowing for Joy Con and Pro Controller support.
Project Nimbus Key Features
High-speed battle action, piloting heavily armored Battle Frames through the war torn skies.
Twenty-six missions in a variety of locations, including floating cities, ocean fortresses, mountain bases, futuristic prisons, and battles in space.
Over a dozen playable Battle Frames with weapons including smart missiles, energy blades, particle cannons, floating energy shields, railguns and autonomous psychodrones.
A sprawling storyline with battles between three different factions over a war-torn futuristic planet: the US-lead CFN, the Russia-led UCN, and the shadowy terrorist Children of Fallen Nations.
Complex bosses each with a unique fighting style, including orbiting nuclear battle mechs, bands of deadly pilots, and weaponized flying ships.
Missiles, rail guns and cannons for long range combat...energy blades and blade rushes for melee!
Bonus Survival Mode lets you choose from an entire hangar of Battle Frames, and then you must battle endless waves of enemies with increasing power.
WARFRONT mode includes massive replayability with six unlimited mission modes including Base Defense, Interception, and Assassination. Six levels of pilot (including Legendary) and Battle Frame customization will keep you playing for hours more.
The fast paced combat alone has me very interested in picking up a copy of Project Nimbus Complete Edition when it hits the Switch this May! How an awesome looking mech game like this passed by my radar in the first place is unknown but I am glad I will soon be able to rectify this omission.
