Otomedius on the Xbox 360 sounds “gorgeous”

By Spencer . April 25, 2008 . 10:10am


Just two weeks ago I wrote about Otomedius after playing it at an arcade. Sometime in the future Konami will bring Otomedius to homes on the Xbox 360. Otomedius G (the G stands for gorgeous) doesn’t have a release date, price or much information yet. We know there is a versus mode for up to three people and online play through Xbox Live.


How will Konami deal with the touch screen menus? They have to remove them. However, if the Xbox 360 game has polygonal penguins to shoot I’ll be happy with the port.


I wonder if Konami Computer Entertainment America will introduce Otomedius to an audience unfamiliar with Parodius…

    Being a parodius fan Im so sad that this doesnt come for the ps2. Yeah I know I should change for a new console but try buying one in Argentina without starving to death for two year to buy it.

    Sweet, I was envious of you playing this in the arcades :)

    finally! I’ve been waiting for this, it looks ace! With the 360s track record in mind I do believe this will be introduced to an international audience. It just seems like the trend with all the shooters on Arcade nowadays…

  • I would assume this wuold get an international release given the abysmal install base of the 360 in Japan, but then… Idolmaster.

    I was hoping for PS3 since importing it wouldn’t be a problem. Hopefully Konami will bring it to the US or port it to PS3.
