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.

See Guxt in action in its original PC version below.
