Hucast Games and 2Dream Corporation announced that Ghost Blade HD is headed to the Nintendo Switch in Asia. Pre-orders are opening up on September 11th over on Play-Asia, where you can get a hold of the limited edition boxed copies of the bullet-hell shooter.
The limited edition of the game features a physical copy of Ghost Blade HD for the Nintendo Switch, a full color printed manual, an arranged soundtrack on CD, an official steelbook, a collector’s certificate and a collector’s box.
You can pre-order the limited edition over on Play-Asia right now, but it’s not expected to ship until the fourth quarter of 2019.
Two years later EastAsiaSoft decided to work with Hucast and 2Dream to port the game over to the Nintendo Switch, retaining the ability to play as three different battle ships across five different stages with three difficulty settings.
They’ve added 37 trophies and achievements, along with retaining the two-player local cooperative play.
The game can be played in full 1080p 60fps, giving gamers some high-end bullet-hell action for the Nintendo Switch.
What’s more is that you can definitely tell from the artwork that this is a game ported up from a bygone era. The attention to detail on the three main heroines’ sex appeal is a forgone attribute in today’s gaming arena, with most Western titles focusing on ugly, butch females that act masculine. It’s also resulted in a huge downturn in sales and a stark lack of interest in many AAA titles.
I mean, have you checked out the main chicks in the game? They’re practically wearing space lingerie into battle! When was the last time you saw a female in a Western game wearing that kind of attire?
Basically it just proves that the Switch is the only real gaming console left to satiate the needs of gamers. I know Nintendo’s first-party titles still have problems with censorship, but the third-party offerings are really bringing their A-game to the table.
You can look for Ghost Blade HD to arrive later this year for the Nintendo Switch. The physical copies and limited editions will be available at some point during the fourth quarter.
