imageIn the future, Xbox 360 owners will get their fair share of doujin shooters too. "Now, we wouldn’t leave Xbox 360 fans in the cold, so yes, we’ve got some things brewing for the future," Enrique Galvez, CEO of Rockin’ Android, said to Siliconera.

 

"While I can’t get into specifics, we have several titles from Platine Dispositif planned for PC and Xbox360." Platine Dispositif is the studio behind Gundemonium and Hitogata Happa.

 

On top of localizing games, Rockin’ Android has plans to develop original games. No titles have been announced, but it will be a collaboration between Rockin’ Android and a Japanese developer.

    “In the future, Xbox 360 owners will get their fair share of doujin shooters too.”

    Are you kidding? This is what should have been said when the Gundemonium Collection was put on the PSN Store for PS3. The 360 is certainly not lacking when it comes to shmup titles, so I don’t see why this article makes it seem like the 360 owners have been neglected when it comes to that genre.

    I would kill (no, not literally :P) to have even a 1/4th of the shmups that 360 has on PS3.

      Yeahhh I hate saying it but the problem with bringing out, there games on the 360 is, it’s no longer the nice little niche they’ve carved out on the PSN. They have legitimate competition with Treasures and Cave’s shmups. They should still do it, but I don’t know if they’ll still find equal success on the 360.

    Hope they don’t diss ps3 owners.

    360 doesn’t need ANYONE’S help, especially not in the US. More shmups for the PS3 please.

    As if they don’t have them already. What the hell?

      Doujin developed shooters are different from Treasure and Cave shooters…

      • JustaGenericUser

        They still implied (at least it seemed that way to me) that 360 was lacking in shooters when they’re, uh, not. Very very not.

          I apologize if you read it that way, but the quote wasn’t implying anything. I specifically said “doujin shooters.” The question about XBLA came up from a reader, which is why we asked it in the first place.

          Plus, what’s wrong with XBLA getting more shooters? Rockin’ Android are still bringing shooters to PSN too. If both consoles get shooters isn’t that good for everyone?

            Well, it was kinda nice that in a genre where we’re virtually ignored by the likes of Cave and Treasure, that someone was looking out for us. Doesn’t feel the same anymore now.

          Actually, if they’re talking about the western market, and especially the European market, the 360 doesn’t have all that many shmups. Most require you to have an imported console.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am all for more SHMUPS, but you know, the 360 sort of has alot of them, no need to act like it is lacking in that department. Though, maybe they meant “their fair share” as in strictly from “Rockin Android”?

    Maybe they can also help fill in that FPS void on the 360 while they’re at it.

    People also forget that Rockin’ Android has more than just shmups.

    I just bought Gundemonium last night since it went on sale, and I’m all for the doujin scene spreading. We do have our fair share of professionally developed shooters on 360, but I also like to see what the doujin are doing, and it’s always good to give them another path to the consumer at large.
