WE DID IT!! After a rally for folks to purchase Gunlord X, NG Dev Team finally saw a reason to bring their shmup to the Nintendo Switch eShop!
Shmup Junkie created a video that included some interview questions to the team asking why they were only releasing the game in physical format vs digitally. Apparently their first digital release did not sell well, so they saw no reason to bring Razion EX to the eShop. BUT all the shmuppers in the community rallied together, purchased Gunlord x (sometimes on multiple consoles), the dev/publisher finally saw a reason to release it digitally, and it’s happening soon!! The game is set to release digitally September 16 costing $19.95.
Directly from NG Dev team:
“Good news Razion EX gets a digital download release in the Switch eShop on September 16th 2021 (Europe + North America). After lots of critics and discussion with the community we came around. If you like 16 bit CGI horizontal shmups please give it a try. The reprint comes 2022.”
Thank you so much to everyone that helped in this effort, as I did not want to purchase the game in physical format. Although the resale market is high with this release, the team plans to continue releasing more waves of the physical game to get it into the hands of shmup lovers. Try not to succumb to purchasing from a reseller, as the physical will be printed again next year and you can play it digitally soon enough!
