    Yes, Raiden IV is not a typical shmup by contemporary standards, and won’t be for everyone. Equally, all of these modes have been available in some form elsewhere. But as a single package, Raiden IV x Mikado Remix offers the Switch one of its best shooting game releases yet – and that is saying something on a console that has emerged as an unexpected star vehicle for the genre.

    Raiden IV x MIKADO remix takes a wonderful sequel that's full of arcade shooting fun and adds a stellar new soundtrack. Plus, the fact that you get everything that was in previous Raiden IV iterations is just peachy.

    For shoot ’em up fans, the decision whether to purchase Raiden IV x MIKADO Remix or not on Switch should be a no-brainer. Not only is this one of the best shoot ’em ups around, but here it’s enhanced with additional modes, global leaderboards and a brilliant remixed soundtrack. Throw in co-op, an abundance of options to fiddle with, and TATE mode, and you have a game that will keep fans of the genre entertained long into the future.

    With an abundance of retro shooters on the Switch it can be a challenge to differentiate them, but for old school arcade fans the Raiden nameWith an abundance of retro shooters on the Switch it can be a challenge to differentiate them, but for old school arcade fans the Raiden name should be enough to grab some attention alone. Fully bringing a well-made, intense, and gorgeous arcade shooter to Switch is thankfully within the capabilities of the developers and the system and, though tastes in shooter styles may vary, this remix brings great gameplay as well as some variety in spades across its varied modes. Granted, if you were expecting any sort of deviation from the core classic series in terms of power-ups or style you’d be disappointed, but if you’re looking to recapture some great feels of the classic arcade get yourself a Switch Grip (so you can play it vertically, as the universe intended), load this up, and jump into the craziness.
