Live Wire has announced that Radiant Silvergun is now available on Nintendo Switch, news that was shared in this week’s Nintendo Direct presentation.

14 July 2520 AD. Light emitted from a stone-like object that was excavated from the stratum before Christ annihilated the human race, with only four crew members and a robonoid abroad the TETRA having survived in satellite orbit. After a year passes, their supplies are depleted and the space cruiser is forced to re-enter the atmosphere to start the fight for humanity’s survival.

In this strategic shoot ’em up, enemies will attack you from all directions – up, down, left and right – with 23 bosses awaiting you across six “highly challenging” stages. Continuously defeating the same enemy will build your chain score, with a secret bonus generated by defeating enemies in a specific order along with a hidden score item. You will need to build an original strategic pattern and accurately defeat the target enemy to succeed.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:

  • Score system specialised in the origin of shoot ’em ups.
  • Tons of weapons that level up by killing enemies.
  • Five levels of difficulty settings that even beginners can fully enjoy.
  • Story mode with a strong message.
  • Beautiful 3D graphics.
  • Sounds created by Mr. Hitoshi Sakimoto, who is highly acclaimed both in Japan and overseas, to colour the world of the game.
  • Game mode that can be enjoyed with the rules of Ikaruga, the second project RS work.
  • Online leaderboards to compete with rivals around the world.

Radiant Silvergun is now available digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
