Japanese publisher Kayac has revealed that it is bringing a new vertically-scrolling shooter to the Switch next month.

RXN: Raijin has been developed by Gulti will hit the eShop in Japan, North America, Europe, and Australia sometime in December.

Here are some more official details (thanks, Gematsu):

A Wide-Screen Vertically Scrolling Shooting Game

RXN: Raijin is a vertically scrolling shoot ’em up with a 16:9 resolution that makes full use of Switch’s wide screen. It will offer a new shooting game experience where players will dodge the attacks coming in from all directions of the wide screen, and attack enemies.

RXN-Original Special Move: “Awakening”

“Awakening” is an RXN-original special move that attacks the entire screen and slows the flow of time for everything other than the player character for a fixed period of time. Since the single use of an Awakening consumes one-third of the HP bar, its skillful use is the key to clearing the game.

Three Playable Characters and Various Characters that Enliven the Story

Players can choose from their favorite of three playable characters each with different attack methods. The characters that appear in Story Mode, who are fully voiced by wonderful actors, will enliven the game.

We have to say it's looking pretty sweet - what about you?
