Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo will bring more classic shmups to Switch


More old-school arcade action en route

NIS America has announced the lineup for its second compendium of classic arcade shmups to the Nintendo Switch, despite the fact we're still waiting on the western launch of the previous six-pack!

Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo will bundle together all three titles in the Samurai Aces trilogy (1993 / 1996 / 2005) alongside Gunbird (1996) and its popular sequel Gunbird 2 (1998), with the compilation rounded out with super-cute Breakout clone Gunbarich (2001). Similarly to Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha, the six games can be oriented in horizontal and vertical modes as required, and will include two-player support for frenzied co-op action.

Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha launches on Nintendo Switch January 21. Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo will follow a month later on February 21. A great start to the year for classic shmup fans!
