Taito’s vertically-scrolling shmup RayForce – known as Layer Section in Japan and Galactic Attack / Gunlock in the west – is coming to Switch, according to a new rating via the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee.

Released in 1994, the arcade original was created using Taito’s F3 arcade hardware and was subsequently ported to the Sega Saturn in 1995. A PC version followed in 1997, and the game came to iOS in 2012 and Android in 2017.

RayForce would get two sequels. RayStorm / Layer Section II in 1996 and RayCrisis in 1999, with the latter game acting as a prequel. While RayStorm got ports to the Saturn and PlayStation, RayCrisis was only ported to Sony’s machine. RayStorm also got a high-def remake for the Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2010.

According to the rating, Layer Section & Galactic Attack S-Tribute is being published by City Connection and is also coming to Xbox One and PS4.

Here’s a trailer for the 2012 iOS release of the game:
