Return of the NES Underdog! (And no it is not an April fool)

Gamers, get ready to unleash your inner rebel as Ikki Unite, the self-proclaimed “worst game of the 1980s,” makes its much-awaited return. Plug in Digital and SUNSOFT have officially announced the release date of the Nintendo Switch version of Ikki Unite, and it’s just around the corner – April 18th, to be precise.

Yes, you read that right. No need to clean your glasses or pinch yourself, you’re wide awake! The long-awaited Ikki Unite is finally making its grand return to the gaming world, and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

But what exactly is this game that has gamers buzzing with excitement? Well, let us take you back to the origins of Ikki to understand its humble beginnings. Originally known as “Ikki” in Japan and “Boomerang” or “Farmers Rebellion” in western countries, the game was one of the first auto-shooters ever created. And now, it’s back and ready to revolutionize the gaming world once again.

But don’t let its humble origin story fool you. Ikki Unite may have been dubbed the “worst game of the 1980s,” but it returns with a bang and a cheeky nod to its past. In a gaming world filled with high budget AAA titles, Ikki Unite stands out with its unique and bold approach, claiming its space as the real AAAAA of the year.

So what’s new with Ikki Unite, you ask? Well, for starters, it’s not just any game. It’s a 16-player online cooperative adventure that celebrates unity, cooperation, and strategy. Get ready to team up with up to 16 friends and face off against a locust plague and tax collectors that threaten your very existence. Each player’s contribution is crucial to defeating a series of powerful bosses, making it a truly immersive and exciting gaming experience.

But that’s not all. Ikki Unite also introduces rogue-lite elements, meaning that each playthrough will be unique and unpredictable. With four different archetypes to choose from – Explorers, Attackers, Enhancers, and Healers – you can customize your gameplay and create a well-balanced team to conquer the challenges ahead.

Ikki Unite is not just a game; it’s an insurrection. A rebellion against the norm, a provocation to laugh and embrace the unexpected. With its unique concept, bizarre characters, and addictive gameplay, Ikki Unite is set to become the cooperative gaming experience of the year and the new favorite “horde survivor” of gamers everywhere.

But why wait until April 18th to experience the chaos? Ikki Unite is already available on Steam, so players can start their insurrection and experience the game’s wacky world beforehand. And for Nintendo Switch users, mark your calendars and get ready to join the rebellion. April 18th will mark the day when Ikki Unite graces the console, and trust us, you don’t want to miss it.

So, there you have it, gamers. Ikki Unite is here to defy expectations, provoke laughter, and make a lasting impression. Who knows, it might just become your new favorite “horde survivor.” Are you ready to join the insurrection and unite with your friends in this erratic multiplayer bullet hell?

Pre-order now and let the rebellion begin!
