Radiant Silvergun launches, available for Nintendo Switch
In the year 2520, an enormous crystal excavated on Earth summons hostile space vessels to attack the planet. Silvergun pilots stationed on the orbiting Tetra spaceship board their ship to intercept and neutralize the extraterrestrial threat.
The 2011 Radiant Silvergun Xbox 360 port supports backward compatibility, playable on Xbox One and Series X|S consoles. In 2019, London-based publisher Data Discs pressed the soundtrack to translucent orange vinyl. The record label's publications for Treasure-developed titles also include Ikaruga and Gunstar Heroes.
Excerpts from the remastered soundtrack, featuring both the original score and Saturn tracks, are streaming on SoundCloud.
