Neo Geo Heroes Ultimate Shooting Sets Its Sights For July

imageKOF Sky Stage? That was just the beginning of SNK themed vertical shooters. Neo Geo Heroes Ultimate Shooting expands the concept of flying SNK stars in a retail game packed with crossover characters.

 

In Neo Geo Heroes Ultimate Shooting, players blast through a character’s story in story mode with shots and bombs. Who can you play as? Ten characters are confirmed for the game.

Marco Fiori from Metal Slug
Akari Ichijo from Last Blade
Athena Asamiya from Psycho Soldier / The King of Fighters
Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury
Mai Shiranui from Fatal Fury
Kyo Kusanagi from The King of Fighters
Iori Yagami from The King of Fighters
Kula Diamond from The King of Fighters
Iroha from Samurai Shodown VI
SYDIII from Armored Scrum Object

 

The SkyStage option is used to play a port of KOF SkyStage, an arcade/Xbox Live arcade game. Neo Geo Heroes Ultimate Shooting also has a medal collecting challenge mode where you can unlock concept art and a multiplayer battle where two players can face off in the sky. Since the PSP has a widescreen and is easily rotated, SNK also made a tate or vertical mode. Good idea, but I wonder how the controls will work.

 

We’ll find out on July 29 when Japan gets Neo Geo Heroes Ultimate Shooting.

    I can’t wait! That said, though, unless the game only uses one fire button, I have no idea how the Tate mode will work.

      I assume you move with the analog stick and shoot with the d-pad (buttons), that leaves you with 4 buttons to use.

    This looks so much like Shikigami, you’d think Alfa System developed it.

    As long as Ignition doesn’t get their grubby hands on these games, everything will be OOOOKAY.
