Wild Guns Reloaded Shoots Onto The Switch Early This Year

The Switch is quickly becoming the place for co-op games, especially those rooted in classic gameplay and retro stylized graphics. Wild Guns Reloaded is coming in early 2018 and allows up to two players to run and gun, combining classic western themes with wild sci-fi elements. This will mark Natsume’s first game for the Switch, with Harvest Moon coming later in 2018.

 

 

Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, today announced Wild Guns Reloaded for the Nintendo Switch; coming early 2018. A big hit on Steam and PlayStation 4, this is the first time the game will be available for the new Nintendo console.

Wild Guns Reloaded is a fast-paced gallery style shooter mixing the Wild West with steampunk. Players can play as Clint, Annie, two new characters, or all together in multiplayer action! Each can jump, dive and roll to get out of the way of the barrage of bullets enemies let fly – or shoot them down with their own gun!

In Wild Guns Reloaded, Annie has tracked down the famed bounty hunter Clint to get revenge on the Kid gang. With eight stages, each with three zones, there’s plenty of bad robots to blast away. With a true arcade game feel, Wild Guns was the first sci-fi western to arrive on home consoles and, to this day, there really isn’t any other game like it!

“Natsume developed the original Wild Guns in 1994 for the SNES, and we are proud to continue this legacy in Wild Guns Reloadedfor Nintendo Switch,” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. “We’ve included some brand new features for the Switch version that we’re very excited about!”

The Switch version offers new game modes, such as Beginner Mode. Now, newcomers can play the arcade-style shooter with unlimited lives! And in contrast to Beginner Mode, Boss Rush: Time Attack was created for Wild Guns veterans. For the hardest of the hardcore, Boss Rush: Time Attack mode lets players take on all the bosses in the game, one right after the other! How far can you get?!
