That's a week from today, in case you don't have a calendar handy.

Vertical Drop Heroes HD will arrive on Nintendo Switch on October 4, 2018, publisher Digerati announced today. The game is already available for PlayStation 4, Vita, Xbox One and Steam, but Nintendo fans haven't had a chance to take the plunge until now.

Developed by Nerdook, creators of indie hits Monster Slayers and Reverse Crawl, Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a rouge-lite platformer. You probably know about what that means already: random stage layouts and lots of monsters with a thirst for your blood.

Key game features are as follows:
  • Randomly generated stages with destructible terrain

  • Split screen, local co-op (supports split Joy-Con play)

  • Tons of skills, abilities, traits and powers to unlock

  • Unique combat system encourages proper planning over quick reflexes

  • Persistent upgrades allow you to carry forward progress between games

  • Every enemy and boss is designed to provide challenge and variety

  • Created by one-man indie machine, Nerdook, in his unique style
Check out the trailer embedded above if you want to see footage of the older PlayStation version of the game in action. Then head on over to the eShop if you would like to purchase it ahead of release and save 30% off the regular MSRP of $9.99. Or don't.
