Just hook it to my gunveins

NGDEV, the independent studio behind ballistic ’90s classics Razion and Gunlord, has announced that it is currently working on a dazzling new shmup, Gunvein, which is currently in production for PC and console platforms.

Gunvein will represent the team’s first foray into HD shmup territory — its previous releases having been originally designed for the Neo Geo platform. A very early work-in-progress teaser certainly ticks all of the boxes for the modern shmup market, including wild palettes of colors, bullet-hell action, an array of weapons and power-ups, screen-filling boss battles, and a pulse-pounding, bass-heavy soundtrack — all set against a sci-fi, interstellar backdrop.

Gunvein is currently in development for PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It is expected to launch in 2022.
