If you’re a fan of the classic Japanese shmups, you might be delighted to know Masaya’s 1991 Megadrive title. Gynoug (((Wings of Wah Thanks to publisher Ratalaika Games) is coming to Switch (in the US).

Really amazing (and often scary) 2D pixel artwork and amazing by Satoshi Nakai Noriyuki Iwadare The soundtrack Gynoug is one of the most unique shooters I’ve ever encountered. This is a great way to experience it at a low cost, as the original Megadrive has skyrocketed in value over the last few decades.

The game was previously available on the Wii virtual console, but was only available in Japan. Ratalaika recently unveiled another great Masaya shooter, Gley Lancer, on the Switch eShop.

Here are some PRs:

From the Middle Ages to the early modern period, evil spirits increased their power by nourishing the evil ambitions of the people. Led by what is known as a destroyer, they plan an attack.

The angel Wah supports the survival of the entire tribe and heads to Ikkas to prevent the spread of evil spirits.

Dominate Wah and shoot down all the grotesque enemies on your way. Defeat the demon boss at the end of each area to move forward.

* Improved modes available with accessibility features and latest controls
* Glory and grotesque art and sound
* Epic midstage and endstage bosses
* Multiple power-ups to increase shots
* Legacy titles from the 1990s!

Gynoug will be available at the Switch eShop on November 12, 2021.
