Detachable Joy-Cons are the perfect fit for battling pixelated zombie hordes in local multiplayer.
UKIYO Publishing, the London-based independent video game publisher in partnership with Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, are proud to release the Nintendo Switch trailer for their randomly generated, zombie-filled road-trip, Death Road To Canada. The trailer runs through yet more footage of the game, also coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, detailing its support of TV, handheld and tabletop display modes along with multiple control options including Pro Controller, Joy-Con Grip and the Single Joy-Con. The game’s pick up and play style combined with short, intense playthroughs makes it especially well-suited to the Nintendo Switch platform.
Tipped off that Canada might just be free from the threat of zombies, the long, winding Death Road is all that stands between the player and their goal. Players will explore iconic sites such as Y’all-Mart and the Muscle! Bomb!! Gym!!!, meeting and recruiting a host of strange and bizarre companions along the way. Unusually for randomly generated roguelikes, Death Road To Canada features a heavy emphasis on narrative, its Interactive Fiction events making or breaking friendships, all the while adding character-driven drama to the blood and guts chaos of combat. A far cry from sunshine state at the end Route 66, Death Road To Canada is a desperate scramble to the promised land of Ontario.
