Physical Editions Exclusively at

Let us introduce you to one of Japan’s most promising devs of today, namely the brilliant one-dev-team behind independent studio HEY! Through collab with equally awesome publisher Hanaji Games, we’re stoked to offer not just one, but TWO dope shoot ’em ups in a physical format. Dezatopia and Mecha Ritz: Steel Rondo is heading your way in a convenient combo-pack, only available as a Nintendo Switch physical limprint at Strictly Limited Games (that’s us!).
Main menu screen of awesomeness!

A game that adapts in-real-time to your performance? Say no more, we’ve got you covered! Well, not actually covered… you’ll still be facing a myriad of bullets heading your way. The difference is that there’s a really clever dynamic difficulty system in place. It’s almost as you steer the difficulty during gameplay… almost. It’s quite hard to explain, as you really ought to experience it firsthand to fully grasp this cool gameplay feature.

Colorful explosions!

Meet Momoko, a japanese school girl fashionista who just happen to stumble across an unknown underground (literally!) civilization. Together with the creatures from underground, Momoko plots to conquer the overworld and combine it with the civilization below to create a brave new world – Dezatopia. It’s now up to Momoko’s classmates Akane and Aoba to stop Momoko’s evil plan and bring peace to the world. To their help, they have an upgradeable speleological fighter ship – the fearsome Pink Aurora. Quite the quirky story, indeed!

Quirky characters!
The levels are all diverse in nature, and the same goes for the awesome and imaginative bosses you’ll face throughout the game. Everything is accompanied by hugely engaging music that sounds pretty much like it’s been taken straight outta some next level 16-bit game. All-in-all, Dezatopia is truly a shoot ’em up like no other. We kindly urge you to experience it yourself.
Terrific tea time terror!
You know what? Just as Dezatopia does, Mecha Ritz also adapts its difficuty level in a masterful way. It auto-adjusts itself seamlessly in real-time based on your gameplay. This makes the games enjoyable by shoot ’em up newbies and old-time veterans alike. While Dezatopia is horizontally oriented, Mecha Ritz goes vertically and of course you’ll also be able to TATE it like any true shoot ’em up enthusiast would. Our story begins with a young girl named Veloce, who just happened to invent a Mecha that ends up terminating pretty much all of humanity. “Oops!”, to say the very least.
Non-stop action!
You play as a Mecha that’s been inbued with human will, fighting your way through wave upon wave of enemies. As the fight goes on, the truth of the world slowly reveals itself to you… and it certainly seems like there’s far more than meets the eye for you to discover. 
Customise your Mecha!

Of course, Mecha Ritz will also offer you customization and exciting unlockables. All of this will be dearly needed as you deep-dive into the frantic arcade shoot ’em up feast that lies ahead. With a visual explosion of vector graphics, mixed with distinctive pixel art, this colorful retro world sets the perfect athmosphere for a great shoot ’em up session across 15 stages and 50 bosses.
