VIDEO: Phantom Trigger Comes To Nintendo Switch August 10

Phantom Trigger has flown under the radar for us here at Nintendo Times, but from what we’ve seen it does look like it could be some good chaotic fun. It releases on August 10 for the Nintendo Switch and does include a co-op mode! Check out the pre-launch video:



Phantom Trigger is a Hardcore Neon Slasher with RPG elements. Figure out what’s real as you follow the story of Stan on a journey through surreal and twisted worlds.

Stan is losing control. The phantom realm brings arcane hexes into a pulsing neon reality, where demons fight in packs and use every trick they have to break your defense. Throw spells and traps mid-combo, ride the edge of control and chaos in this fresh take on action combat. You are your own worst enemy in Phantom Trigger.


You play as Stan, a whitecollar middle-class worker living an ordinary life that gets disrupted by a mysterious event. Discover a brand new world and connect the dots along a branching story through neon-demonic worlds. Phantom Trigger has 4 alternate endings.


Merging elements from slasher and RPG genres, Phantom Trigger takes a rich combo system and builds on it, with trapping and freezing enemies, herding groups, burning bosses and dashing from one combo to the next.


Branching story with 4 alternative endings
