Check out the new Nintendo Switch announcement trailer for 30XX below to see the game running on the portable console:

30XX is all about high-speed, high-stakes action as you will hightail it through chaotic levels at lightning-fast speeds. You can combine game-changing unlockable weapons and power-ups in both solo and co-op game modes. 30XX supports both online and local couch co-op as you can tailor the game’s difficulty up and down to suit each player’s playing preference. You can also focus on the story and settle with a robust Assist Mode or if you are looking for some hardcore action, turn up the heat with custom Entropy Conditions for a more challenging experience.

The new Maker Mode has arrived for the Early Access PC version of 30XX, and it will allow you to build, edit and play full-fledged levels helmed by the creator behind the Mega Man Maker fan project. Apart from creating new levels, you can also share yours with other players from around the world and play levels created by other players as well. The Maker Mode will also be available on the Nintendo Switch, and it will use the same developer tools used to create levels in the main game and will allow you to pitch Nina and Ace against your own creativity.

The Maker Tool will allow you to create the levels however you want. You can either customize levels for ridiculous speed runs and record times or even design full-scale Metroidvania levels which are riddled with enemies, puzzles, and sub-bosses. After it is complete, you can engage with your favorite types of custom levels through powerful discovery tools. The developer is teasing another major announcement for 30XX soon so make sure to keep checking back here as we will be covering it as well.
