Ghost Blade HD1

As niche as the shoot 'em up genre might be, on the Switch it’s growing in size by the day. If Ghost Blade HD sounds familiar, that’s because the developer Hucast Games previously released this bullet hell shooter on the Wii U eShop in 2017.

The German-based developer has now announced the game will be revived in 2019 for the Nintendo Switch. No exact date has been locked in. The game will support TATE mode for vertical play and will also include leaderboards, achievements and a two player mode. Publishing will be handled by Eastasiasoft Limited.

Below are the official tweets confirming the game’s arrival on Switch:

As noted in the tweet above, the game will receive both a digital and physical release. In our Wii U eShop review, we gave Ghost Blade HD seven out of ten stars and said it's one for hardcore arcade shmup players.
