Wild Guns now available for pre-order, lands on Switch this April

Wild Guns Reloaded is the followup to the hard to find SNES classic. It’s already out on Steam and the PS4,  and it’s almost ready to debut on the Switch.


Wild Guns, the original, is one of those “lost” games of the 16bit era. There are a few that fall into that category, and more or less, they’re nearly impossible to find today. And if you do find a copy, you’re probably going to pay some serious cash for it.

This new Wild Guns isn’t the original, but it was built with that game in mind. And while you might’ve played it already on one of the aforementioned platforms, it’s pretty great to see it back on a Nintendo console.

Developed by Natsume, the steampunk western is set to become available on April the 28th. Not that that’s all that far off, but you can secure your copy right now, if you want to make sure you get one. Pre-orders are officially open at GameStop via this link.

Not sure if you want in yet? Heres a bit about the title and a look at the PS4 version in action:

Wild Guns Reloaded is a fast-paced gallery style shooter mixing the Wild West with steampunk. Players can play as Clint, Annie, two new characters, or all together in multiplayer action! Each can jump, dive and roll to get out of the way of the barrage of bullets enemies let fly – or shoot them down with their own gun!

In Wild Guns Reloaded, Annie has tracked down the famed bounty hunter Clint to get revenge on the Kid gang. With eight stages, each with three zones, there’s plenty of bad robots to blast away. With a true arcade game feel, Wild Guns was the first sci-fi western to arrive on home consoles and, to this day, there really isn’t any other game like it!

The Switch version offers new game modes, such as Beginner Mode. Now, newcomers can play the arcade-style shooter with unlimited lives! And in contrast to Beginner Mode, Boss Rush: Time Attack was created for Wild Guns veterans. For the hardest of the hardcore, Boss Rush: Time Attack mode lets players take on all the bosses in the game, one right after the other! How far can you get?!
