VASARA Collection | Xbox One Release Date Revealed
VASARA Collection | Nintendo Switch Release Date Revealed
VASARA Collection | Limited Physical Release Date Revealed
Vasara Collection jumps from obscurity into the top tier of bullet hells on the Switch by offering both original brilliant titles without any technical hiccups and supporting the ever popular TATE option along with a whole new game that proves to be one of the few proper four-player options of the genre on the system. The zany characters and plot just make things sweeter, and make up for the somewhat derivative origin of the series. Considering the relative obscurity of the original releases, for a reasonable asking price you might just end up with three quality, 'brand new' manic shooters in your collection.
For the budget price that’s being asked for VASARA Collection, it’s an absolute steal. Both classic VASARA games are addictive enough in their own right, but it’s the addition of Timeless Mode that takes the collection into must-have territory. With its sharp, colourful graphics, tight mechanics and randomised stages, it’s heaven for shoot ’em up fans seeking something that will keep them on their feet.
