Bullet-Hell Shmup Danmaku Unlimited 3 Heading to Switch in Early 2018

Doragon Entertainment has announced a slight delay for the Switch port of their bullet-hell shoot ’em up, Danmaku Unlimited 3.

The Ikaruga and Dodonpachi inspired game will forgo its planned 2017 release for sometime a bit later – in early 2018. Featured above, you can view a trailer for the game’s PC version.

Doragon founder Sunny Tam noted the game is launching for the hybrid console “within the first couple months of 2018.”
