    Anyone got suggestions for good 2-player shoot 'em ups with local co-op that you can buy on cart? Loads available on digital but looking for cart only as it's a present that needs to be wrapped up.

    Only found Splatoon and Sine Mora EX so far but shirley there must be more? (and preferably not Neo Geo reissues either)

    Just to note that Splatoon 2 is only 2 player locally if each player has their own Switch & cart. There is no split screen 2 player mode.

    Sine Mora isn't really a full 2 player experience. The game is OK but 2 player is tacked on.

    What sort of shooters? Old school shooters like Gunstar Heroes on the Sega Megadrive Collection ok, or has to be 3D like Splatoon?

    Anything newish, so no Neo Geo reissues like Aero Fighters or Sega Megadrive as we already have them. Going way back, stuff like Einhander on the PS1 or Gradius 3. Skyforce Reloaded looks good on the Switch but it's digital only. Ditto Graceful Explosion Machine and Ikaruga. Seems all the good stuff which has been updated for Switch is digital only :(

    They won’t be huge sellers so producing carts would be prohibitive. Digital release however would be profitable & no risk of unsold carts.

    There's a new competitive 2-player shooter coming out that riffs on Twinkle Star Spirits on the Neo Geo. The name escapes me at the moment but it was in a news report GoNintendo last week. I'll have a dig around

    Edit: It's called Rival Mega Gun
