The M2 ShotTriggers release of Cave-developed shoot ’em up ESP Ra.De. will launch for PlayStation 4 and Switch in late 2019 in Japan, developer M2 announced in an interview with DenfaminicoGamer. It will be available digitally, as well physically in first-print production and limited editions.
ESP Ra.De. will be the first M2 ShotTriggers title available for Switch. All previous M2 ShotTriggers titles—Battle Garegga Rev.2016, Sorcer Striker, Dangun Feveron, and Ketsui Deathtiny: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi—have been released for PlayStation 4, with Battle Garegga Rev.2016 and Dangun Feveron later being ported to Xbox One.
M2 is currently accepting ideas for the bonus item included with the first-print production edition of ESP Ra.De. For reference, the first-print production edition of Ketsui Deathtiny: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi (the only other M2 ShotTriggers title to get a physical edition) included a 48-page booklet. To submit your idea, simply respond to this tweet. If your idea is used, your name will be included in the game’s credits.
A field test for ESP Ra.De. has been running at Hirose Entertainment Yard by Taito in Akihabara since May 10 and will wrap up on May 23.
