HAMSTER Co. is happy to announce that Master of Weapon will be released for Nintendo Switch on Feb. 15th, 2024, available digitally for Arcade Archives series by HAMSTER. “Master of Weapon” is a vertical shmup released by Taito in 1989.

In Master of Weapon, an entire week of nuclear war on Earth destroys its global environment. The survivors of the war gather their strength and resources in an attempt to bring Earth back to the way it was. Your spaceship starts with a basic photon cannon and air-to-ground bombs, both of which can fire continuously without a need for pause. The photon cannon can be upgraded five times for up to five streams of photons by collecting P upgrades. Additionally, the exhaust of the ship can be used as a weapon. (h/t Wiki)
