Eastasiasoft has announced that the arcade-style shooter RXN -Raijin- will be receiving a special limited edition on Switch.

This vertically scrolling shoot ‘em up launched on Switch digitally back in December last year, harking back to arcade converts such as Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga. We considered it a "flawed but nonetheless enjoyable straight-up shmup" in our review, being a solid, if not essential, game of its genre on the eShop.

The new physical options for the game will come in both 'Standard' and 'Limited' edition forms, with the limited one being limited to only 3,000 copies. The standard edition will set you back $39.99, while the limited edition costs $49.99. Here are all the goodies you can expect to find in that special edition box:

  • A physical copy of the game (region free)
  • Collector's Box with alternative art
  • Full-colour printed manual
  • 48-page full-colour artbook
  • Official Steelbook™ with alternative art
  • An individually numbered collector's certificate

Online pre-orders open for both editions on 30th August, exclusively on Play-Asia's website, with the games aiming to be shipped out in September.
