Posted on December 30, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Aka to Blue, a bullet hell shoot-’em-up that was released on mobile just a few months ago, now appears to be bound for Switch. An image was posted today showing the game running on Nintendo’s console.

It’s worth keeping an eye on Aka to Blue due to the developer behind it. Hiroyuki Kimura, who previously worked at Cave, is the boss of Tanoshimasu. Kimura started out at Climax, where he contributed to the likes of Shining Force and Landstalker as well as other companies. At Cave, Kimura worked on Akai Katana Shin, DoDonPachi Maximum, and other bullet hell shooters. He’s now the CEO of Tanoshimasu.
