Years after it was announced for Wii U (but never released), Assault Android Cactus has now been confirmed for Switch. It’ll be launching on the eShop next month as Assault Android Cactus+.

Assault Android Cactus+ is an enhanced edition of the twin-stick shooter with new character costumes, aim assist options and Campaign+, which is a completely reimagined version of the 25-stage campaign. Here’s some additional information and a trailer:

Campaign+ caters to experienced players by rebuilding each stage with new enemy waves and dynamic elements, utilizing the game’s full arsenal of enemies for new encounters and amped-up boss fights. Veterans and newcomers alike will be able to go deeper than ever before and have even more online leaderboards to conquer.

Thanks to the Switch, Cactus+ is not only playable on the go, but single Joy-Con support makes it a snap to play co-op anywhere. With aim assist, players focus on dodging, shooting and managing weapons, retaining the heart of the experience even without twin joysticks. Aim assist also works with dual Joy-Con and Pro Controllers making it ideal for players learning the ropes or anyone wanting to give their thumb a rest. It’s the perfect equalizer for gathering friends for up to 4-player couch co-op.

Boss Rush and Infinity Drive give determined players even more action, while Daily Drive gives them one shot at setting a worldwide high score in a newly generated level. Developer Commentary, Jukebox, and Sound Test modes are joined by a new Movie Gallery for revisiting cinematics. Unlock new costumes for all nine Androids and earn credits to enable EX options like first person mode, AI players and the newly re-balanced MEGA Weapons that are more destructive than ever.

Assault Android Cactus+ launches for Switch on March 8 for $19.99. It can be pre-purchased now with a 25% discount for $14.99. English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese languages are supported.
