Hamster is launching Alpha Mission II on the Switch eShop this week as part of its ACA Neo Geo range, it has been revealed.

Known as ASO II: The Last Guardian in Japan, this 1991 vertically-scrolling shooter was one of the earliest titles for SNK's console, and served as a sequel to the 1985 arcade original.

It boasts upgradable weapons and seven levels, each with a boss at the end. It's a pretty typical blaster but should make a neat addition to the Switch eShop. Will you be downloading it this week? Let us know with a comment.
