When a developer is called Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team you better believe we’re looking forward to their first Xbox One game. And we won’t have long to wait, as Rise & Shine will launch on Xbox One on 13 January 2017.
Rise & Shine promises to fuse platformer, bullet hell and arcade shooter into something new.
“Rise & Shine is a true “think and gun” that combines elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers to create a new blend of strategy and viscera. Switch between Shine’s add-ons to solve puzzles that redefine what bullets can do. Guide projectiles through intricate mazes, electrify damaged equipment to discover new pathways, and juggle 8-bit fruit because why not? This is NOT another run’n’gun clone at all. This is something different and fresh.”

Of course, we’ve heard such proud boasts before, but Rise & Shine is already garnering praise and accolades by the bucket-load, so we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy and bring you a full review.
