Gunvein release date

Original (5/1): The Switch version of Gunvein is almost here, and the bullet hell shooter will be arriving next week. According to an eShop listing, it’ll be out on May 11, 2023.

We reported on Gunvein at the very end of last year. It was on track for a 2023 debut on Switch, but this marks the first time we’ve had a concrete date.

Here’s an official overview from the eShop listing:

Gunvein is an intense, dynamic bullet hell STG inspired by the arcade masterpieces of the 90′ and 00′.

Screen domination is vital – use your lock ons & charged energy blasts to overwhelm enemies before they overwhelm you.

Aggressive play is rewarded with resources that can be used to temporarily power up your shot, or to unleash a devastating screen clearing Bomb. Use this to create destructive feedback loops!

Score isn’t merely a number – the points you accrue come back to you as extra lives & currency for the game’s shop system.

Key Features

– Arcade Mode: See how far you get on a single credit, save your best scores to the game’s online leaderboards!
– Standard Mode: A mode which provides a satisfying level of challenge for those who don’t seek out 1 credit clears or high scores. Balanced checkpoints & a shop system which makes sure that no restart is wasted. No practice modes required, learn by playing!
– Roguelike Arrange Mode: Test your reflexes & decision making in procedurally generated versions of the game’s 5 stages! Carefully designed to capture the intensity, smooth flow/pacing and encounter variety of hand crafted stages.

Classic – has you start with a weak ship that levels up as you kill enemies. Mix & match any of the game’s abilities, and upgrade your ship’s stats to your liking.

Minimal – lets you play through the entire game with one of the 3 main ships and get something closer to the game’s arcade mode.

– Missions: A set of extra challenges & tutorials, from thorough tutorials that will teach you the basics of the genre, to boss rushes & score attack challenges.
– Online Leaderboards
– Convenient Practice Tools

Gunvein will cost $19.95 on the Switch eShop.
