Damn, this thread needs a bump. Thank goodness Moss is close to releasing Caladrius:

I hope it gets released in the US.


Yeah me too, since it's region locked at the moment.

On the bright side.

Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi Extra [Regular Edition]

Is coming out region free on PS3 this July, put in a preorder for it (even at $70~ ....ouch. Thankfully I had a $5 coupon for play asia too take some of the pain away.

I heard good things about it on Shmups.com, also caved and bought Ginga Force as well since I wasn't sure if there was going to be a discount release like their last game.

Oooh, new PS3 SHMUP... wait, 5pb? Aren't those the same people that released a shoddy Cave port on 360 using stolen PS2 code?

Yeah, they struggled with the ports early on. I dunno if they'll improve any for Ketsui, but they've been working on it for quite a while...

^That looks interesting, but I kind of want Ikaruga and Radiant Silvergun on the PSN more.

Not going to happen since MS funded the port jobs for both of those games for XBL, and Treasure is not likely to do that on their own.  Guardian Heroes is likely, but doubtful. That's only because Sega published it and had Treasure port it for them so they could put it on XBL.

 

As far as Mamorukun (they're stretching the truth a bit, GRev helped in development of Ikaruga, but anyway) expect something along the lines of Guwange.  I played the demo and it was ok, I'll be picking it up, but I don't see myself playing it a ton, considering I finally got to play Under Defeat finally last night (bought it last year) and am seriously out of practice I'd rather play that instead of the newer game, but that's just me.

 

Ketsui should ship in a few weeks.

 

In other news, I got Bullet Soul (really cool game), Ginga Force (lots of stuff to buy, plus I need to practice more), Shooting Love (man these two games aren't nearly as good as Trizeal), and the new Dodonpachi Saidaioujou, which I really really hated, it's bland, ugly looking and not what I think when I play a Dodonpachi game, (a major waste of money for me, big disappointment to me personally)

 

Also picked up the The Tale of ALLTYNEX (part of my KS pledge) haven't played them yet.  And still hoping for a release of Caladrius on something I can play it on, (region locked makes me sad).

 

Lastly waiting on my UMD version of Darius Burst to get here from JPN, it's in the US now somewhere. Finally took the plunge and paid the money to get a copy (still wasn't cheap) but cheaper than Ebay prices.  Taito seriously needs to port Darius Burst Another Chronicle EX to home systems, that game was made for an HD widescreen display, every day we don't get word of it, makes me think we'll never get it, which is a huge shame.

I am not really into SHMUPs but my buddy does some great reviews on youtube called SHMUP Central. He does a really good job at going deep into the game.

Sigh, seeing this thread so dead makes me sad.

 

At least RefleX is out on Steam:

Recently, I've been searching for region free shmups for my 360.  It isn't a cheap lifestyle.  I have yet to find, physical copy, an import shmup for less than $30-$40.

I got awhile back, the UK version of  Do Don Pachi Resurrection.  Haven't had time to play it or look into the other games in the series.

I also heard that Raiden IV is coming to the PS3, not sure about the details like if it is a physical or digital version.

Raiden IV Overkill will be PSN only, April 29th. 

 

Might as well link the trailer for funsies:

 

 

I'll probably pick it up myself..

Hmm... Maybe. I can understand digital only considering these games are never really that big. If they were, you wouldn't need to buy anymore!

Now just release Raiden Fighters Aces in North America's PSN.  I still have Raiden IV in my 360 backlog.  Might just get the PS3 version just because it includes the DLC already.

Yeah, I'm double dipping on PSN for Raiden IV for that reason.  I don't want to be tied into my 360 as I'm out of room for consoles, and kind of want to get rid of it, but there's so many JPN shmups on there.  :(

I believe PSN is getting R-TYPE soon. Same as the 360 version. Also Wii U is getting Gaiabreaker. Not sure how it is or when it's releasing but until somebody finally decides to reinvigorate the Cave developed/Bullet Hell stylish shooters again, this is what we have to look forward to. Also, I enjoy using arcade sticks for my shooters and I bought a Hori Mini 3 which works fantastic for these games but won't register with the Raiden IV PSN download. Works for all other downloads from PSN though so I'm a bit confused.
