Rise & Shine Shoots First and Asks Questions Later on Xbox One Next Week

Richard Walker

Rise & Shine is an old-skool style "think and gun" shooter coming to Xbox One next week, bringing a blend of arcade shooter, bullet hell, and puzzle platforming to "create a new blend of strategy and viscera". You play as Shine, who using a host of add-ons that you can change on the fly, is able to deal damage, solve puzzles, and perform a variety of other tasks.

"Guide projectiles through intricate mazes, electrify damaged equipment to discover new pathways, and juggle 8-bit fruit because why not?" the game's description reads. And despite Rise & Shine's pleasing animated cartoon visuals, it won't be a walk in the park to save 'Gamearth', as you'll need to dash past missiles, avoid unseen traps and take on a lethal armada of enemies, including towering robot bosses, zombies and giant death wheels.

A colourful hand-drawn scrolling shooter, Rise & Shine is looking pretty darn inviting indeed. Check out the pre-order trailer below to see for yourself. Rise & Shine will be heading to Xbox One on 13th January 2017 priced $14.99/£11.99, and you can pre-order it here.

  • I've been waiting on this for awhile. Hopefully the gameplay is really good.
  • Is that the dog from Duck Hunt @0:46? Anyway, this is a beautiful looking game. Surprised it's only on Xbox One. Probably will come to other platforms later. Still this game looks like a perfect fit on Xbox One. Day one!
  • Yes, it is the dog from Duck Hunt. The game is good, but be prepared for a challenge. It's not easy.
  • Whatever happened with that game that looked like a really, old, OLD cartoon (like the 1930's or something)? Are we still waiting for it, or did it already come out and I missed it?
  • #4, you're talking about Cuphead, which is slated to be released sometime this year.
