Zoo Games isn’t publishing Raiden Fighters Aces here. Like we suspected earlier Valcon Games is taking care of it. Before snapping up the rights to Raiden Fighters Aces Valcon Games and Japanese publisher Success struck a deal for Shepherd’s Crossing.
The funny thing is Valcon still hasn’t said anything official about Raiden Fighters Aces. The box art clearly has their logo on it and the ESRB rated the game listing Valcon as the publisher. Signs point to a domestic release. All we need now is a concrete release date for the trio of Raiden Fighters Aces games.
Seeing Valcon publish Raiden Fighters Aces is great news. Not just because it’s Raiden Fighters Aces, but this could mean Microsoft is getting more lax when it comes to approving 2D shmups. Remember Castle of Shikigami III was a Wii exclusive here while Japan also saw it on the Xbox 360. Hopefully, 5pb will be able to make a Cave arcade compilation and G.Rev’s Mamoru-kun wa Norowarete Shimatta will get released overseas too.
