Sine Mora EX gets a Switch release this summer

This week, Nintendo confirmed that Sine Mora EX, a remaster of 2012’s shoot-em-up Sine Mora, is coming to the Nintendo Switch this summer. The game will feature remastered graphics, local coop, versus mode, and many more features. Here’s the full feature list from Nintendo:

  • Engrossing story integrated seamlessly into the action to elevate the user experience
  • Unique, time extension based gameplay
  • 7 beautifully crafted, diverse stages
  • Story mode playable in local coop mode
  • Versus mode for more multiplayer fun
  • Over 50 different weapon combinations with time manipulating devices
  • Great accessibility – Story Mode is tailored to not scare away absolute newcomers to the genre
  • Risk and reward – multiple difficulty levels in Arcade Mode with deep scoring and hidden rank system for the more experienced players
  • Music composed by Akira Yamaoka, Sound Director of Silent Hill and Shadows of the Damned
  • Featuring boss designs by Mahiro Maeda, one of the most prominent Japanese anime creators (Blue Submarine No. 6, The Animatrix – The Second Renaissance, Kill Bill: Vol. 1)”

I played the original Sine Mora when it launched on the PS Vita a few years back and it was hard putting the game down. The ability to control time added a layer of control and difficulty that I hadn’t seen in many shoot-em-ups or even PS Vita titles at the time. Releasing this for the Switch is pretty much a no-brainer. It’s perfect for portable sessions or playing on the TV. Let’s hope you can use individual Joy-Cons for the coop mode.
