Sweet leaping shmups: Raiden V might be coming to Switch

It’s been rated

Outed by Taiwan’s Digital Game Rating Committee, it seems as if Raiden V is coming to Switch at some point.

Unlike other ratings that may or may not come to fruition for years, this one seems like a sure thing given the sheer popularity of the Switch and the fact that the listed publisher, UFO Interactive, has handled prior releases in the west. Previously available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, the Switch would complete the cycle, allowing pretty much anyone and everyone to grab it on the platform if their choice.

Raiden V was originally released back in 2016, then got a “director’s cut” edition in 2017 as part of the classic long running Raiden shmup series. So long as it launches with a decent price on Switch I’d recommend it.
