Arc System Works America, Inc. announced the release of Code Shifter, an action/platforming game on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Steam for Windows (PC).
Code Shifter is a 2D action platform game where you can play with 100 characters from Arc System Works’ crossover IPs.
The story takes place at the game developer “Awesome Rainbow Company”. Mysterious bugs are occurring in front of the team who are trying to launch their new game within a month. One of the programmers, Stella, completes the bug-fixing system “Code Shifter”, which finds and fixes bugs by controlling her digital avatar “Sera”. Will Stella and her teammates be able to delete all the bugs and deliver the game before launch date?
In the main action part, Sera can transform into iconic Arc System Works characters remixed in 8-bit pixel art, from series including Guilty Gear, Blazblue, the River City Girls, Double Dragon, and the Kunio series. While transforming, players can enjoy the soundtrack featuring 8-bit renditions of popular character themes.
In “COLORFUL FIGHTERS” mode, up to 4 players can battle against each other in a brawler mini-game. By defeating “ghosts” in the Ex stage of the main story, more playable characters will be unlocked for this mode.
