Kayac has announced RXN: Raijin, a new vertically scrolling shoot ’em up developed by Gulti and due out for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in Japan, North America, Europe, and Australia in December. In Japan, it will cost 3,900 yen.
Here’s an overview of the game’s key features:
A Wide-Screen Vertically Scrolling Shooting Game
RXN: Raijin is a vertically scrolling shoot ’em up with a 16:9 resolution that makes full use of Switch’s wide screen. It will offer a new shooting game experience where players will dodge the attacks coming in from all directions of the wide screen, and attack enemies.
RXN-Original Special Move: “Awakening”
“Awakening” is an RXN-original special move that attacks the entire screen and slows the flow of time for everything other than the player character for a fixed period of time. Since the single use of an Awakening consumes one-third of the HP bar, its skillful use is the key to clearing the game.
Three Playable Characters and Various Characters that Enliven the Story
Players can choose from their favorite of three playable characters each with different attack methods. The characters that appear in Story Mode, who are fully voiced by wonderful actors, will enliven the game.
