SAINT DRAGON Shoots On Over To Consoles

Oooh, shots fired!


We here at HeyPoorPlayer sure do love our shmups, so we were rather delighted to hear that retro cult hit SAINT DRAGON has appeared on the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4.

The game was released by Jaleco way back in 1989 and features a space dragon fighting against evil mechs. It has a simple, 1-button control for firing normal bullet and special bullets, as well as the ability to strategize using SAINT DRAGON‘s long invincible body.

The new release is part of the Arcade Archives series, which aims to reproduce many old arcade classics for modern systems. Additional options for more arcade-like presentation are available, among other customizations.

Did you play the original SAINT DRAGON back in the day? Have you explored any other Arcade Archives titles? Let us know by sounding off in the comments below.
