More On: Blazing Chrome

Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer Joymasher have been cooking away on Blazing Chrome for a while now, fueling their love for retro classics like Contra and Metal Slug into a neo-retro actioner that would give Mad Max Fury Road fans a rush. The game looks just as tough and frenetic as the franchises that inspired it, and fans don't even have long to wait until they can get it in their hands. Blazing Chrome comes to PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on July 11th. Check out the latest trailer below.

Upcoming Retro Love Letter To Metal Slug & Contra  Blazing Chrome Launching July 11 on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch & PlayStation 4


New trailer reveals unlockable characters for the most skilled players

PARIS -- June 24, 2019 -- Publisher The Arcade Crew (Dark Devotion) and developer JoyMasher announced today that the enemy infested run-and-gun platformer Blazing Chrome will launch on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on July 11, 2019.


Alongside today’s launch date reveal is a stunning new gameplay trailer that showcases hidden characters within the Contra-esque title. Fans who unlock the new characters within the game will be treated to fast-paced, side-scrolling and vertical gameplay action as ‘Suhaila,’ a razor girl with a robotic arm or the skilled and deadly ninja ‘Raijin’ you try to out-fire, out-maneuver and out-wit your various metal-encased AI enemies.


The new characters are armed with entirely new ninja-based weaponry - players can harness a deadly katana, jump higher and use dash, creating a completely new combat experience in a Contra-like game.


JoyMasher’s Blazing Chrome harkens back to the golden days of side-scrolling shooters with modern touches ensuring its gameplay feels as precise as it does authentic to the era it channels. Players can tear through six highly-varied stages filled with deadly, bullet-spewing AI as Mavra, a lone human resistance fighter, or the rebellious robotic insurgent Doyle.
