Developer NGDEV has announced that they’re bringing Gunvein, an arcade-inspired shmup, to the Switch. The game doesn’t have an official release date just yet, but we know it’ll arrive on Switch in 2023.
Gunvein is an intense, dynamic bullet hell STG inspired by the arcade masterpieces of CAVE, Taito and Raizing/8ing. Screen domination is vital – use your lock-ons & charged energy blasts to overwhelm enemies before they overwhelm you.
Aggressive play is rewarded with resources that can be used to temporarily power up your shot, or to unleash a devastating screen clearing Bomb. Use this to create destructive feedback loops!
Score isn’t merely a number – the points you accrue come back to you as extra lives & currency for the game’s shop system.
