Bullet-hell, boss-rush adventure game, ITTA, will be receiving the physical treatment next week, as Super Rare Games has revealed a partnership with Glass Revolver and Armor Games Studios to bring the indie title to Nintendo Switch via cartridge.
Only 5,000 copies will be available – 3,000 standard editions, 2,000 SteelBook editions – and will go on sale on Super Rare Games’ website on January 7, 2021, at 1pm ET. The standard edition will be available for roughly $37, while the SteelBook version will be around $54. Units are expected to ship by January 11, 2021.
The standard edition of the game will include:
- A fully assembled Nintendo Switch game with cartridge
- A full-color manual
- Interior artwork
- An exclusive sticker
- Three trading cards randomly selected from a five-card set
The SteelBook edition will come with all of the above, as well as a SteelBook case, with both boxes bundled up in a sleeve.
ITTA tells the story of a young girl named Itta who wakes up to find her family having been slaughtered. She embarks on a journey to find answers, accompanied by a spirit that takes the form of her former feline companion. Itta wields a glowing (and massive) revolver as she adventures into the unknown and takes on monstrous bosses who dish out plenty of bullet-hell chaos.
The pixelated adventure was inspired by the creator’s own personal struggles. Originally intended to showcase a completely bleak and dark world, the creator pivoted the game’s direction while it was still in development to provide a bit more light, stating, “… as my outlook on life slowly began to change, so too did the game: I didn’t want ITTA to be devoid of light anymore.”
If you’re a fan of the bullet-hell or boss-rush genres, or just exploring pixelated worlds in general, the physical release of ITTA may be just what you’re looking for. The game is relatively well-received on Metacritic by fans and critics alike. The PC version has hit the mark with players as well, currently sitting at a “Very Positive” user rating on Steam. And who doesn’t love a good physical release?
