The classic Shmup Gunnail has been ported to Switch and PS4


Publisher Hamster Corporation has announced the classic shoot’em up gunnail was ported to Switch and PlayStation 4 last week.

The latest in their Arcade Archives series of classic game re-releases, gunnail has been ported to Switch (via the eShop) and PlayStation 4 (via the PlayStation Store) on each platform’s digital storefront.

The newest reissue of Arcade Archives before gunnail was another classic shmup, Xexex, the ultra-rare shoot’em up released in 1991 in the United States under the name of Orius by publisher Konami. It never saw a home console release outside of Japan, so it remained lost until its new re-release.

Here is an overview of the game:
