Virtual On Slicing And Shooting On Our Shores

When Sega Japan said Cyber Troopers Virtual On Oratorio Tangram 5.66 was in development for Xbox Live Arcade it didn’t sound like an only in Japan kind of thing. And it isn’t! Sega USA sent us an e-mail confirming it’s coming to North America this spring. April is spring, right? We’ll probably see Virtual On hit the Xbox 360 then since that’s when Japan gets it.


The mech fighting game is being updated with better graphics, online play, and voice chat. When you’re not dodging rockets online you can hone your skills in ten arcade mode levels and fourteen score attack stages. Sounds like a sweet deal for 1,200 Microsoft Points ($15). Now if there was just a way to plug the arcade sticks into an Xbox 360…

  • No news on europe I take it? I’m guessing at the same time but you never know.

    • Sega Europe is releasing this too.

    Seeing as how i just finished making my 360 stick compatible on PS2, i’m sure there is a way to plug those arcade sticks into a 360. It’s just not for the feint (faint?) of heart. . . =P

    Arcade stick? Don’t you need twin sticks to play this game properly? I did get pretty good with the Dreamcast controller.

  • Should be pretty fun being able to play it with dual analogues like the game was intended – that said it was pretty fine on the saturn with just a d-pad and some shoulder buttons
