Switchblade was a game originally developed by Core Design (Tomb Raider, Rick Dangerous, Wolfchild, etc), and published by Gremlin Interactive (Top Gear, Body Harvest, Zool). Piko Interactive, who owns the IP now, brought up a Kickstarter to get funding for the Sega Mega Drive / Sega Genesis release. 45 US$ and a copy is yours!

Switchblade Game Backstory:

On the cyber world of Thraxx, Havok has returned. After 10.000 years of peace, the Fireblade, source of power for the ancient Bladeknights, has shattered.

The night burned red, and the people of the Undercity fell beneath the onslaught of Havok’s nightmare creations. Helpless, the Bladeknights died alongside their people. Only one of their order survived.

You play Hiro, the last of the Bladeknights, a hi-tech warrior armed with stealth, cunning and a powerful re-programmable cyber-arm. You must enter the Undercity and reassemble the sixteen fragments of the shattered Fireblade. Only then will you be able to take on Havok and average the death of your people.

Oh… and there will be Switchblade action figures too!
