Publisher Degica has confirmed Spacewave Sofware’s competitive shmup title Rival Megagun will be arriving on Nintendo Switch alongside the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions at the end of 2018. The split-screen battler takes the classic top-down shmup template and adds a few neat competitive twists.

The coolest feature is the ability to transform your ship into a giant boss machine known a Mega Gunship, which you can use to invade your opponent’s screen and blast them to smithereens. The PC version will support both local and online multiplayer, so here’s hoping the Switch version follows suit.

Let us know what you make of Rival Megagun, and whether this unique twist is enough to set it apart from an already heavy shmup presence on Switch…
