Embrace the Retrograde Vibe on Nintendo Switch!

Today, Freemergency and Another Indie are pleased to announce Retrograde Arena is coming to Nintendo Switch for free on June 5th! 

Retrograde Arena is a stylish physics-based twin stick brawler! In Retrograde, weapons don't kill, but the environment does! Retrograde reimagines the twin stick formula with dynamic movement enhanced by weapon recoil. Guns are not just for attack, they are for speed, dodging, sharp corners and brutal counter attacks. Weapon recoil, bouncing beams, and environmental awareness make Retrograde Arena an entirely new competitive multiplayer experience.

Use an array of weapons to blast, push, or trick other players into deadly environmental hazards and use the recoil to speed around the arena. Dripping with gorgeous neon and thrumming with powerful synthwave tunes, Retrograde Arena captures an 80’s vibe as it puts players in various battles for dominance! Awarded with the Rising Star (most anticipated game to be released by a new game studio) and Best Innovation Awards in the Southeast Asia Game Awards 2019.


  • A Multiplayer Spectacle (Online & Local): Battle with up to 6 friends or AI in a rapid-fire rounds of neon drenched fury with retro-futuristic weapons. 

  • Three Game Modes for different skill types: - Last Man Standing for the quickest fingers, and deadliest shot. - King’s Crown for tactical ambush and intelligent skirmisher - SuperSizer for a new and intriguing game based around an insurmountable enemy.

  • Physics is the Key: Dominate Newton's laws and use your weapon’s recoil to dodge enemy attacks, smash them into walls or fly around the arena at great speeds.

  • Grab Your Weapon: Use traditional weapons like machine guns, railguns, and shotguns to slam enemies to their doom! Or reflect enemy attacks back at them with the Mirror, unleash the dread Accelerator, or create a deadly black hole with the Imploder.

  • Conquer Every Arena: Each arena has its own layout and unique quirks that demand different strategies to succeed!

  • Beauty Matters: Unlock different skins, thrusters, and particle effects to personalize your Drone. 

  • No lootboxes or other tricky F2P mechanics: supporters can pick up two available DLC with more skins and maps to support us!

"This is a very fun party game, I like the fact that you struggle with the recoil control that adds fun to the flavor of the game. The art is also really attractive, this is one of the very few games that actually pull off Tron-like graphics really well"

Wan Hamzer, Lead Designer Final Fantasy XV
