I'm a sucker for a good SHMUP. I was pretty excited when last year we saw a solid remake of 1942 in 1942: Joint Strike and an Ikaruga re-release on the Xbox Live Arcade. Since then, well I've been a sad penguin. Especially since the island of the rising sun got Raiden IV. Boo - no fair!
Perhaps sooner, rather than later, we'll be getting a game that was previously a Japanese only release. Raiden Fighter Aces has been spotted on a few listings, including Gamefly and Amazon.com. The game is a compilation of Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2: Operation Hell Dive and Raiden Fighters Jet on the Xbox 360. If all goes as planned we'll be gunning down oversized tanks with our friends by March 3rd!
What are some of your favorite SHMUPs of all time? Personally I LOVE Raiden II.
