It’s Official, Raiden Fighters Aces Soaring Overseas

By Spencer . March 16, 2009 . 2:00pm


The ESRB rating made it a safe bet, but nothing beats an official confirmation from publisher Valcon Games. Now we have one (thanks Chris!!). Raiden Fighter Aces is coming to North America thanks to Valcon Games. No official date was listed so we’ll have to go with the early April target set by retailers. Raiden Fighters Aces has three arcade conversions for the $29.99 suggested retail price. This is way, way better than 7,140 yen ($72). Essentially, we’re less than half price for the same collection. Awesome.


Since Microsoft is still lenient when it comes to 2D games there is hope we’ll see Cave’s games and Shooting Love 200X overseas. Which publisher is going to be brave enough to pick up Deathsmiles?

  • Any word on region locking? I have, as always, lost all hope of shmups in europe so I’m hoping for this instead.


    it will be an NTSC release.

    I’m guessing that means it’s not region free?

    • All modern TV’s and gaming systems can handle NTSC signals. It’s about the developer locking the game to a single region or not :/

      However they confirmed it will be locked in that thread, thanks for the info.

    When will M$ covince one-man dev Shanghai Alice (real name ZUN) to bring all his Touhou games on to XBLA? All 12 (done JUST by him)? And in AMERICA?

    ……………Nah, I don’t think ZUN would trust big commercial publishers. Cave Story Wii publisher/Knytt series-developer Nicalis would be a better bet.
