The Switch is getting a free eShop shmup after Christmas

It’s a DanMachi game

Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? – Infinite Combate was released earlier this year in the US, but it did not initially come with its special shmup companion game: Is It Wrong To Try To Shoot ’em Up Girls In A Dungeon? on all platforms. Publisher PQube has since rectified that, but it has one platform left to make good on: Switch.

While you can pick up the shmup for free on PC right now and select PS4 regions, there was a complication with the Switch version. As stated on their Twitter account, PQube notes that the game will “now be heading to Switch after Christmas,” and will “let [fans] know” if that changes. PQube clarified that this was due to a “hiccup with the eShop submission.”

The gist is that you’ll take a small party of five characters through a four-stage, four-difficulty setting shmup, with classic power-ups and bosses in tow. Amazingly, the free shmup is actually rated much higher than the base game, so it probably behooves PQube to actually follow up on this and garner some goodwill.

The Switch is no stranger to these sort of free Japanese gaiden games, especially on the 3DS. I can’t believe Mighty Gunvolt came out over six years ago: when the 3Ds was alive and well!
