Blazing Chrome devs planning on adding online co-op in the future

Blaze a path with your buddy

Blazing Chrome, the best Contra game that's not called Contra, is currently providing local co-op action on the Switch. Some fans were upset to see that the game doesn't include online co-op, but apparently that's going to change. Developer JoyMasher has said on Twitter that they're planning on adding the feature, but didn't give details on when to expect it.

GoNintendo Video Review - Blazing Chrome

It's Contra in everything but name

For me, Blazing Chrome is absolutely PERFECT. It hits all the notes I want it to, and makes me feel like a bad-ass. I'm an ancient gamer though. Will it be able to reach the same highs for today's gamers, or people who didn't grow up with Contra, the SNES/Genesis, and arcades?

Publisher The Arcade Crew (Dark Devotion) and developer JoyMasher announced today that the enemy infested run-and-gun platformer Blazing Chrome will launch on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on July 11, 2019.

Alongside today’s launch date reveal is a stunning new gameplay trailer that showcases hidden characters within the Contra-esque title. Fans who unlock the new characters within the game will be treated to fast-paced, side-scrolling and vertical gameplay action as ‘Suhaila,’ a razor girl with a robotic arm or the skilled and deadly ninja ‘Raijin’ you try to out-fire, outmanoeuvre and out-wit your various metal-encased AI enemies.

The new characters are armed with entirely new ninja-based weaponry - players can harness a deadly katana, jump higher and use dash, creating a completely new combat experience in a Contra-like game.

JoyMasher’s Blazing Chrome harkens back to the golden days of side-scrolling shooters with modern touches ensuring its gameplay feels as precise as it does authentic to the era it channels. Players can tear through six highly-varied stages filled with deadly, bullet-spewing AI as Mavra, a lone human resistance fighter, or the rebellious robotic insurgent Doyle.
