The final announcement made during Devolver Digital’s 2021 showcase involved a special sort of release. In 2022, Demon Throttle will only be available physically for the Nintendo Switch. However, the company announced that pre-orders will be taken now. It also confirmed there will be no limits on how many will be made, so everyone who wants a copy can get one from Special Reserve Games.
Here’s the announcement tweet, which included a look at the trailer. This is an auto-scrolling shoot’em up for between one and two players. It has a retro sort of vibe, with characters heading through levels to face monsters and giant bosses.
Demon Throttle is a charming little revenge story for 1-2 players from @Doinksoft, the creators of Gato Roboto, launching next year!
