Crimzon Clover - World EXplosion

Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion Explodes onto Switch worldwide, with new upgrades!​​​​​​​

Fan favorite “bullet hell” shmup Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion comes to Switch with major overhauls, heralding even more chaos and making it portable, to boot!

Degica Games was proud to announce that hit shoot-em-up PC title Crimzon Clover – World Ignition is about to see its fuse run down and get blown up into the newly rebalanced and upgraded Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion. What’s more, this updated edition of the Crimzon Clover experience is making its way to the Nintendo Switch platform for the first time! It will be available for digital download in the North American, Japanese, and PAL region Nintendo eShop on October 29th, with a Steam update sometime thereafter.

If you’ve never experienced Crimzon Clover before, now’s your chance to see the formula at its most refined, with a whole new “ARRANGE” version that allows you to power-up your ship through stacking upgrades, shoot bullets right out of the sky, dodge revenge shots from defeated enemies, and more!

Prepare yourself for an insatiable rain of bullets, bombs, and beams in Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion! From Japanese indie developers Yotsubane and Adventure Planning Service, this unique top-down shooter, inspired by the golden arcade era of the genre, is a wild ride you won’t want to miss out on!

What Makes It EXplode 

Your first step in Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion is choosing how you want to play, as well as which powerful ship will be yours to command. Choose your version from ARCADE (true to the original arcade game), NOVICE (better if this is your first step into the world of hardcore shmuppage), or ARRANGE (a whole new can of worms with unique mechanics and novel challenges never seen before in the Crimzon Clover saga), then choose your Mode from BOOST, ORIGINAL, UNLIMITED, and TIME ATTACK.

Take control of a high-spec fighter and destroy massive waves of enemies while dodging their unending rain of bullets. Each of the three ships has its own style of standard firing and a unique appearance. The firing style is translated beautifully as you amp your way into BREAK MODE and DOUBLE BREAK MODE! As you blast through your foes in each stage you can collect stars that will raise your score.

Each enemy destroyed helps fill your Break Meter, which allows you to wipe the screen with powerful bombs or, if you have the patience, blast off into BREAK MODE to add a huge boost to your firepower and let you rip through enemies with ease. That’s not the extent of your strength though, as having a full Break Meter while in BREAK MODE will allow you to enter the ultimately destructive DOUBLE BREAK MODE. Watch your enemies crumble in fear as you turn the tide and fill the screen with your own hellacious rain of firepower!

New to Crimzon Clover – World EXplosion is a vastly altered take on the existing game: the ARRANGE version! Every game Mode has an ARRANGE version available to play, and these new takes on the existing Modes turn everything on its head:

  • Utilize the newly added Multi-Gauge to give yourself unique power-ups based on items collected from downed foes!
  • Destroy foes, then dodge their last-ditch revenge shots for an added challenge in the new BOOST Mode.
  • Shoot enemy bullets out of the sky directly in the new UNLIMITED Mode.
  • And much more!

Additionally, the Switch edition of the game supports full gameplay in handheld mode, including control optimizations for vertical screen orientations so that those looking to have a true arcade experience on the go can fulfill that wish handily!

Can you pilot your craft through the bullet massacre the enemies have prepared for you? Or will your ship become just another bump amidst the endless wreckage beneath your wings?
