The Nintendo Switch and shoot ’em up games?! A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN!! From the days of the arcade come a new wave of shooters and we are here to gobble them up and take them on the go! Check out the latest from Degica Games, Crimzon Clover!

Fan favorite “bullet hell” shmup comes to Switch with major overhauls, heralding even more chaos and making it portable, to boot!

Degica Games is proud to announce that hit shoot-em-up PC title Crimzon Clover – World Ignition is about to see its fuse run down and get blown up into the newly rebalanced and upgraded Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion. What’s more, this updated edition of the Crimzon Clover experience is making its way to the Nintendo Switch platform for the first time! It will be available for digital download in the North American, Japanese, and PAL region Nintendo eShop on October 29th, with a Steam update sometime thereafter.

If you’ve never experienced Crimzon Clover before, now’s your chance to see the formula at its most refined, with a whole new “ARRANGE” version that allows you to power-up your ship through stacking upgrades, shoot bullets right out of the sky, dodge revenge shots from defeated enemies, and more!

Prepare yourself for an insatiable rain of bullets, bombs, and beams in Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion! From Japanese indie developers Yotsubane and Adventure Planning Service, this unique top-down shooter, inspired by the golden arcade era of the genre, is a wild ride you won’t want to miss out on!

What Makes it EXplode

Your first step in Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion is choosing how you want to play, as well as which powerful ship will be yours to command. Choose your version from ARCADE (true to the original arcade game), NOVICE (better if this is your first step into the world of hardcore shmuppage), or ARRANGE (a whole new can of worms with unique mechanics and novel challenges never seen before in the Crimzon Clover saga), then choose your Mode from BOOST, ORIGINAL, UNLIMITED, and TIME ATTACK.

New to World EXplosion is a vastly altered take on the existing game: the ARRANGE version! Every game Mode has an ARRANGE version available to play, and these new takes on the existing Modes turn everything on its head:
  • Utilize the newly added Multi-Gauge to give yourself unique power-ups based on items collected from downed foes!
  • Destroy foes, then dodge their last-ditch revenge shots for an added challenge in the new BOOST Mode.
  • Shoot enemy bullets out of the sky directly in the new UNLIMITED Mode.
  • And much more!

Additionally, the Switch edition of the game supports full gameplay in handheld mode, including control optimizations for vertical screen orientations so that those looking to have a true arcade experience on the go can fulfill that wish handily!

Can you pilot your craft through the bullet massacre the enemies have prepared for you? Or will your ship become just another bump amidst the endless wreckage beneath your wings?
