ESCHATOS for Switch first launched on November 18, 2021 in Japan. A PlayStation 4 version is also planned for release at a later date.
Here is an overview of the game, via Qute Corporation:
Fast-Paced and Exhilarating Speed!
Each segment of the stage is quick, making the game fast-paced and exhilarating. Frequent transitions from attack to rest and back progress the game with rhythm.
No gaps between stages and no data loading wait times—allowing you to play non-stop from beginning to end.
Traditional effects with a science-fiction theme creates an orthodox world filled with design and characters having a nostalgic feel.
Hard-Core Shoot ‘Em Up Shooter
Easy and simple to understand rules! Just “shoot,” “evade,” and “defend.”
Simple scoring and difficulty level settings make it easy for anyone from the first time they play.
Equipped with shield system to protect from enemy shots and allows quick counterattack. Strategically choose one of the three shots available—“front shot,” “wide shot,” “shield.”
Three Game Modes
Play in three different game modes: the classic shooter “Original Mode,” with power-ups in “Advanced Mode,” and race against the clock in “Time Attack Mode.”
Endless fun with three distinct game modes!
Choose from Three Different Background Music Sound Sources!
