Cave Story creator's vertical-scrolling shmup Guxt coming to 3DS

To be played with the system held sideways.

Cave Story creator Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya's 2007 freeware shmup Guxt is coming to the 3DS eShop via publisher Nicalis.

Nicalis producer Tyrone Rodriguez tweeted that the vertical-scrolling shooter would feature a vertical display mode i.e. you turn the system on its side, so players can enjoy it the way it's meant to be - without a pesky hinge obfuscating the playing field.

A more official announcement came on Nicalis' twitter feed where it confirmed Guxt had been rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
