Back in 1992, Masaya and NCS Corporation released Gleylancer on the SEGA Mega Drive. It stayed exclusive to Japan until the Wii Virtual Console version in 2008. Now thanks to Shinyuden and Ratalaika Games, the title is returning on Switch.

Greylancer is a horizontal scrolling shooter. The Switch port will have improved modes with accessibility features, including translations for the cutscenes and modern controls.

Here’s some additional information about Gleylancer:

The story follows Lucia, a 16-year-old star fighter pilot in the Earth Federation. A war breaks out between humans and an unknown alien race in the year 2025. Lucia’s father, Ken, a high-ranking admiral in the Federation Navy, is captured after his ship is warped out of the combat zone with 4 alien modules which have the ability of teleportation. Lucia, heart-broken after hearing her father’s disappearance, decides to hijack the prototype fighter CSH-01-XA “GleyLancer” with the help of her friend Teim and go after her father.
