Strange Brigade made a surprise appearance during the E3 Nintendo Direct event.

Not only was the co-operative shooter announced for Nintendo Switch, but the Rebellion-developed game was given an immediate release date.

A PS4 and Xbox One hidden gem, Strange Brigade can be purchased from the Nintendo eShop for the discounted price of £22.49.

“Egypt, 1930s. Erased from history and buried in a nameless tomb for 4,000 years, Seteki the Witch Queen has risen once again,” reads the official description.

“Only one troop of heroes can stand against Seteki and her army of mummified monstrosities: the Strange Brigade!

“Explore remarkable ruins, solve perilous puzzles, uncover tantalising treasure, and blast your way through an array of undead enemies in this rip-roaring 1930s third-person adventure for 1-4 players!”

The Nintendo Switch version features local wireless play for 2-4 players, as well as online co-op with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

It also features brand new motion controls, as well as support for the Pro Controller and HD Rumble.

From a technical standpoint, Strange Brigade features dynamic resolution switching for smooth 30 frames-per-second gameplay. It runs at up to 1080p on TV and 720p in handheld mode. 

Strange Brigade launches alongside a season pass, which gives users access to a three-part campaign titled The Thrice Damned. It also adds new playable characters, as well as all-new weapons, and brand new in-game items.

Fans can purchase the content individually, or pick up the Strange Brigade bundle featuring the base game and DLC content.

Elsewhere during the Nintendo Direct, the company would announce a new game in the Metroid series.

A direct sequel to 2002 GBA game Metroid Fusion, Metroid Dread sees Samus battle a mechanical threat known as the E.M.M.I.

“By gaining abilities, players can return to areas they’ve already visited to find new places and hidden upgrades in classic Metroid gameplay.

“Explore the sprawling map, evade the E.M.M.I. robots, and overcome the dread plaguing the planet when Metroid Dread launches for Nintendo Switch on 8th October.”

A new game in the WarioWare series was announced, while Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 was given a 2022 release date.
