Next Week, Moon Dancer will bring NES-style beats and sci-fi shmup action to Nintendo Switch ...

Regista has announced that the sci-fi shoot 'em up Moon Dancer will be released on Western consoles on September 29th.

Our little shmup bellies were stuffed with fly-ey shooter-y goodness after a great week with Radiant Silvergun. Yet just as there is always room for more shoot-em-ups, there is always room for more shoot 'em-ups.

Moon Dancer is a vertical space shooter that lets you control the titular ship and blast waves of enemies in a similar vein to other genre titles. It's a shoot 'em up game, what did you expect? Dancing on the moon? Here's about tactical aim.

Check out the following excerpt from the Switch eShop game page for further information about Moon Dancer.

- Exhilarating lock-on lasers - Operate the fighter "Moon Dancer" equipped with shots and lock-on lasers to defeat the enemy. - The Nintendo Switch version has improved graphics by Tenmaru. - Includes "Arcade Mode" and "Caravan Mode" - The mission will be completed if you accomplish all the tasks. - The chiptune arrangement version using the NES sound source by Taku Shiiba

Moon Dancer is currently available to pre-order on the eShop, with the game receiving a generous 40% discount (until October 21st) to commemorate its release. This reduces the RRP of 15.99 to 9.50, making it a much more appealing proposition to anyone considering purchasing.
