Great news for Switch owners looking to relive some classic shooter action—Natsume has announced that Wild Guns: Reloaded is now available for preorder at Gamestop at a price of $29.99. Though the game first launched on PS4 back in 2016, it’ll be making its Switch debut this April.
If you’re an old-school Nintendo fan, you might notice that this is something of a homecoming. Wild Guns: Reloaded is a remake of the original Wild Guns, a classic first released for the Super Nintendo back in 1994, and Nintendo fans will be thrilled to have it back.
With tons of arcade-style shooter charm, Wild Guns: Reloaded has a great mashup of steampunk and the Wild West. Expect lassos, saloons, and cowboy hats just as often as flame-spewing tanks and giant robots. Players follow Annie and Clint (plus two characters brand new to the remake) as they seek to get revenge on the dastardly Kid gang through intense shootouts and wild boss battles. But this isn’t Wild Guns’ first rodeo, and they’ve got some extras to keep things fresh.
In addition to two new playable characters, Wild Guns: Reloaded adds plenty of other fun treats to help modernize the classic. A Beginner Mode offers unlimited lives for those a little slow on the draw, while the new Boss Rush: Time Attack mode lets sharpshooters try to take on the game’s bosses as fast as possible. Add in local co-op for up to four in multiplayer fun and there’s something for everyone.
If you’ve got an itchy trigger finger (or if all this Wild West talk is growing on you), you can mosey on over to Gamestop’s website to preorder. Wild Guns: Reloaded will be launching this April for Nintendo Switch both at retail and digitally, so keep your spurs spinning, your belt buckle shiny, and any snakes squarely out of your boots.
