Here’s the lowdown below from WayForward:
Fill your prescription for fun in this unique, cooperative, bacteria-blasting experience!
Prepare for a big dose of excitement delivered in a microscopic package with Vitamin Connection for Nintendo Switch! Developed by WayForward and published physically by Limited Run Games, this Switch-exclusive one- or two-player action title will deliver thrills, laughs, and varied gameplay unlike anything else on the system.
In Vitamin Connection, players assume the roles of Vita-Boy and Mina-Girl and take control of the minuscule Capsule Ship to battle evil bacteria from within living organisms. By blasting subatomic foes with your Vitamin Beam, utilizing a special claw tool, and navigating maze-like stages, you’ll save the members of the Sable family — including the dog! — from a variety of hazardous and increasingly wacky predicaments. Each level also includes sub-games featuring rhythm challenges, Pong-like reflex tests, and more.
While the entire game can be played solo, Vitamin Connection also features an innovative, asymmetrical local two-player co-op mode, in which one player controls the Capsule Ship’s movement and shooting, while the other handles the ship’s rotation and aiming. Coordination and a connection between players are essential for success!
Vitamin Connection will initially be available exclusively as a physical release published by Limited Run Games, followed by a digital release from WayForward. Additional details about the preorder window, pricing, and release date will be announced at a later time. For more info, stay tuned to wayforward.com and limitedrungames.com.
There are six stages in the game, as well as sub-games that utilize Joy-Con gyro functionality. And as explained, there will be two-player co-op available in this game. Sadly, no screenshots have been shown off besides the main visual.
Vitamin Connection is in development for Nintendo Switch.
