Meet The Girls In Otomedius Excellent

By Spencer . July 2, 2010 . 6:50pm

Otomedius Excellent replaces the spaceships from Gradius with girls personified as spaceships. Did you see Aoba Anoa? She’s the first character in the game’s animated opening and… a female Vic Viper. Aoba is from the original Otomedius.


New characters made for Otomedius Excellent include Kokoro Belmont and two guests from Konami’s Busou Shinki series.



While Otomedius Excellent looks like the kind of game that’s only for Japan, Konami plans on publishing it in North America sometime this year.

    Oh right this was the same lolicon trailer i saw on gametrailers

    I was actually hyped for Otomedius when I first heard of it, but the series is not up to the level I was hoping it would be. I was hoping for Parodius or Twinbee-level quality.

      I don’t know how Excellent will be, but the first Otomedius pales in comparsion to Parodius, Gradius, or other danmaku shumps on the 360… it just didn’t feel very polished…

    I just hope that Konami decides to price this game properly. No way in hell is this game going to sell at the normal retail price of $60 (I’ll buy it, but I’m crazy like that).

    I hope this is not locked or is released in Europe :(

  • AdventureTimeFinn

    Wow thought I was watching the opening to Bizzare Jelly 5.

    • Haha, my friend noticed the similarities between the two as well

  • NeoTechni

    I hope it supports the Hyper Stick Pro! I couldn’t use it on the first game cause of that blasted territorial we-hate-our-customers lockout

  • Those ship designs are clearly flawed, hiding the chest area that all the pervs want to get a look at.

  • What a slamming soundtrack!
