And the jet-fighting, space-shooting news just keeps coming. UFO Interactive has announced a release date for the Nintendo Switch port of Raiden V: Director’s Cut, which will be winging its way to the hybrid console July 25.

Already available on PS4 and PC, Raiden V: Director’s Cut is an expanded edition of the 2016 Xbox One release, which itself is the fifth title in the 25-year-old Raiden series. Director’s Cut features all the modes of the pulse-pounding original, which includes three battle vessels, a fully-voiced story mode, and unique “cheer” system (which allows online friends to boost your weapon power), but also adds a handful of extra stages. Awesome fun whether you rocket into battle alone or with a buddy.


Raiden V: Director’s Cut will launch in stores and on the Nintendo eShop July 25.
