Bullet Hell Shooter “Razion EX” Coming to Switch eShop Next Week

On Friday, independent game developer NGDEV announced that their horizontal-scrolling bullet hell shooter Razion EX will be released on the Nintendo Switch eShop on 16 September. The game has been available for a few months in physical format via NGDEV’s website, but this is Razion EX’s first wide release in a digital format.

First released for the Neo Geo in 2014, the Switch port of Razion EX features a number of tweaks and upgrades over the Neo Geo original. Players pilot a space fighter through six stages filled with enemies, obstacles, and, of course, bullets.

Here’s the official breakdown of the game from NGDEV:
