Taito’s “Gun & Frontier” Joins the Arcade Archives on PS4, Nintendo Switch

Publisher Hamster has announced that vertical shooter Gun & Frontier is now available on Nintendo Switch and PS4 as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.

Originally released in arcades by Taito in 1990, Gun & Frontier puts one or two players behind the stick of the Desperado, “earth’s latest fighter plane.” Your mission: strike and destroy the vicious cabal of space pirates known as “Wild Lizard” (erm…).
If you gather enough gold nuggets throughout each stage, then you will charge up your powerful napalm bomb attack (yes!) which you can use to relegate your enemies to ash and cinder!

Like other Arcade Archives titles, players can post their high scores to the online leaderboards and change various game settings to match their own personal skill levels and taste.

Arcade Archives Gun & Frontier is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop.
