Devolver Digital announced their latest project, Gato Roboto, on Twitter today. Developed by Doinksoft, Gato Roboto is an adorable black and white retro-ized game starring an adorable kitten who happens to be quite handy with a mech suit. If that’s not enough to entice you, I’m not sure what will, but perhaps the trailer will do the trick.
We don’t know a whole lot about this game just yet, but we are quite impressed with the two-toned animations, bass-heavy soundtrack, and while our main protagonist is a cat of few words, they sure are super charming. Devolver has dubbed the game a “CatMechtroidvania”, and the Metroid influences here are pretty clear, but it should be a fun homage to many well-loved classic games.
Gato Roboto arrives on Nintendo Switch sometime next year.
