Zerodiv is bringing Psikyo's classic shooter Gunbird to the Switch eShop this week it has been released for $7.99. Originally developed in 1994, Gunbird was later ported to the Saturn and PlayStation and was followed by a 1998 sequel which saw release on the Dreamcast. More recently, the two titles were bundled together in a PlayStation 2 collection.

 

 

The Tate Mode 

using the joycons for control

I don't like this orientation. Is there an option for vertical?



I really want to get this one at some point. Bullet hell shooter games are quite a bit of fun, although the bad VA was part of the joy for games like Castle Shikigami 2 and 3 xD



 

              

Dance my pretties!

"Yes, you can rotate the screen at will, both on TV but especially in the portable mode."

Apparently, it's possible. Awesome! Getting this!

That's good enough for me. I'm still just in it for the intense bullet hell dodging action
