Cave-Developed Bullet-Hell Shooter ‘Mushihimesama’ Stealth Launched on Switch

During Japan’s Nintendo Direct E3 2021, Live Wire announced that the Cave-developed bullet-hell shooter Mushihimesama is available now on Nintendo Switch.

Initially launched in 2015 on Steam, Mushihimesama has players take control of princess Reco who makes her way through five stages on top of her giant beetle name Kiniro. The only thing standing in her way are waves of enemies who will rain bullets on you. This version of the game features the original arcade version with a reimagined and remixed Arrange and v1.5 modes featuring different music, mechanics, and bullet spreads.

“Mushihimesama set the standard for challenging yet rewarding shooters when it first debuted in 2004,” said Junichi Asami, production manager, Live Wire. “We are ecstatic to collaborate with CAVE Interactive to bring Mushihimesama to the Nintendo Switch where a new generation of players can experience a classic for the first time. With the inclusion of settings to rotate the display, players can turn their Nintendo Switch systems or TVs sideways to play in glorious full screen just like the original arcade experience.”

There are multiple difficulty modes and customization options for new players.
