Moon Dancer brings NES-style beats and sci-fi Shmup action to Switch next week

Receiving a Steam release earlier this year (to positive reviews) followed by a Japanese Switch release in July, publisher Regista has announced that sci-fi shooter Moon Dancer is coming to Western consoles on September 29th.

After having a burst With Radiant Silvergun earlier this week, our little shmup bellies were full of flying shooter goodness. But just as there’s always room for dessert, there’s always room for more shoot’em ups.

In a similar vein to other titles in the genre, Moon Dancer is a vertical space shooter where you take control of the titular ship and attack waves of enemies – it’s a shooter, what did you expect? dancing on the moon? Locking on your targets is really the name of the game here, so no more random buttons as you move your ship left and right, it’s all about tactical targeting.

For more details on Moon Dancer, check out the following roundup from its Switch eShop game page:
