Ray'z Arcade Chronology debut trailer

Original (12/27): Taito has released the first trailer for Ray’z Arcade Chronology, its upcoming shoot ’em up collection for Switch.

Ray’z Arcade Chronology was announced for Switch this past July. However, this is the first time we actually have a look at the package in action. It will include RayForce, RayStorm, RayStorm Neo-HD, RayCrisis, and RayCrisis HD.

Here’s a ton of additional information:

Publisher Rainmaker Productions and developer M2 have announced that Assault Suits Valken Declassified will be appearing on Switch. The game is set to release worldwide later this spring.

Assault Suits Valken Declassified is a remaster of the original SNES shoot ’em up Assault Suits Valken, which released in the West under the name Cybernator. One of the main draws of this version is that, while the original western release had been censored for international audiences, this new release will be a retranslated and uncensored version. Beyond that, the game is also set to feature a translated recreation of its original Japanese guidebook, new artwork, as well as new features such as save states, a replay function and unlockable cheats.
