Blast from the Past: Triggerheart EXELICA Levels Up for the Switch

For the first time, the West is set to experience Triggerheart EXELICA in its full glory – physically. This iconic Japanese Shoot ‘em Up, which first captivated gamers in 2006, is soaring onto Nintendo Switch courtesy of Red Art Games. The Western release, digitally published by Cosmo Machia, marks a milestone as the first official physical edition outside Japan.

Switch Editions: From Standard to Collectible

Gamers in Europe and North America are in for a treat with both ESRB and PEGI-rated versions hitting shelves. Red Art Games spearheads the European distribution, while Video Games Plus takes charge in North America. The lineup includes a Standard Edition available at various retailers and two special editions ripe for pre-order at Red Art Games’ online haven.

Special Editions: A Collector’s Dream

Diving deep into the original developer’s treasure trove, Red Art Games crafted two exclusive editions:

  • Deluxe Edition: Priced at €39.99, this bundle features reversible cover art, an exclusive sleeve reminiscent of the 128-bit Japanese version, a collectible coin, and a double-sided poster.
  • Collector’s Edition: For €69.99, this version ups the ante with all Deluxe perks plus the original soundtrack CD, an acrylic stand, and an extra-large poster.

Both editions, limited to 500 PEGI-rated copies, offer a nostalgic nod to the game’s storied past and are available for pre-order now.

Looking Ahead: Q3 2024 Release

With a scheduled launch in Q3 2024, Triggerheart EXELICA’s physical editions are poised to reignite the shmup fervor. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a newcomer to the genre, these editions promise to deliver a blast of arcade nostalgia and a collector’s delight.
