Milestone is porting another shmup to the Wii?

illwA Japan/Asian region coded Xbox 360 is *the* system for shooter enthusiasts. But, the Wii isn’t a bad alternative with a host of virtual console games, Gradius ReBirth, and sporadic releases from Milestone. They bundled three of their arcade games together as Milestone Shooting Collection Karous Wii – aka Ultimate Shooting Collection when it gets released outside of Japan earlier this year. It looks like Illvelo / Illmatic Envelope will be next. Multiple retailers, including Play-Asia who has a good reputation for leaking dates, confirm the product is set to launch on November 13.


Illvelo Wii will be a faithful port of the arcade game with original modes. And by “original modes” I mean mini-games. If you haven’t heard of the game before take a look at this video. The colorful style reminds me of Magic Pengel.

    I suppose this wasn’t included in USC, since the three games in that were DC games (and very likely unchanged, sans with the addition of 480p hopefully), which I assume took up very little space, even 1GB a piece would be less than the Wii’s 4.5 GB on a single layer!

    This new arcade game might have been too big to include. I don’t know.

    let’s hope the Wii picks up then, since the Wii actually sells in japan.
