    Let’s hope that the US release isn’t long after this! I’ve heard that Excellent is distinctly better than the original.

      I thought the first game was kinda boring and sold it, and there were a lot of expensive DLCs.. but the artwork’s really nice for this one.. I was surprised the FF13 Int’l booklet was hardcover.. wonder if the eventual US release would have this artbook as well.. They should remake Sexy Parodius or something..

        I couldn’t even get pass the first boss on Sexy Parodius ;__; I suck

          Keep trying! Shmups are a matter of patience, pattern recognition, and a lot of death. It’s hard to just start out “good” at a shmup. If it was that easy, Japanese arcades would lose a lot of money. :)

            Yarr, I shall try harder to conquer it! I’ve just finished ESP.Ra.De… How could I live for this long and have not even heard of that game before..

        Man, Sexy Parodius HD would be awesome. Especially with 5.1 surround sound! I love how weird the Parodius soundtracks are.

    where’s my PS3 version konami?

    i want this since it reminded me of Bizarre Jelly 5 from No More Heroes :)

    “The limited edition costs 36,651 yen ($440), which is actually more than the Otomedius Gorgeous limited edition and its special touch pad arcade stick.”

    if only i had the money :(

      If you want shmups, you get a 360. I don’t know how or why it happened, but the 360 ended up with Japan’s more niche games, like shmups or VNs.

      • godmars

        It happened in part because apparently they can get away with asking $70~$90 for a SHMUP in japan. The other is its on disc which would make it more expensive to make on Blue Ray.

        Though it could probably be offered as a download on PSN/XBLA, but then they’d likely want more than $15 or it.

          i just don’t know why developers won’t include shump on PS3 and Wii considering their the dominant force in japan. im just guessing on this but isn’t a shump game consist of only maybe 5-10 GB? i maybe wrong about this but that’s just what i speculate. if that’s right they can make a cave shump collection for PS3, not only their market will expand but it will allow importers to import the game(though i would prefer they bring it stateside) i don’t know but that’s just me.

            And a schmup in 5-10gb? Dear god that would be a huge game. Hell, Wartech was only like 2gigs. And Ikaruga is in the tens of megs iirc. Shmups are SMALL.

          • PrinceHeir

            well that’s good ^^ they can make a shump collection for PS3. i would buy it in a heart beat :D

    • Testsubject909

      Now that you mention it… This pretty much IS Bizarre Jelly 5…

      Great, now I want…

    How the hell does a chair cost $440? Even with speakers it shouldn’t cost more than $50

  • Darkrise


  • neocatzon

    that eyes.. did Mine Yoshizaki drew the character design?

    • http://myfigurecollection.net/collection/ashgail Ashgail

      Yup, he’s the character designer for Otomedius

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_J6JZI7MLOB4OWZ7FZX45VLNXNE Entice

        I wish there are guest characters in this game *coughdeliciousakihinatacough*

    • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

      Yes he did the design for the Otomedius series, his style is very outstanding if you ask me, gotta love Keroro Gunsou xd

      I really love his style, so cute and funny x3

  • http://www.facebook.com/Robborboy Paul ‘Chinny’ Chinn

    I for one hope to God they change that atrocious cover art. It’s just contrast for the sake of contrast.

  • http://www.samuraiprincess.com Mr Fwibbles

    There are new pictures of Emon 5 here, who wasn’t confirmed to be in the game. Does this mean he’ll be a DLC character?

    Hentai warning: “Sit on the face of your favorite Otomedius pilot.” That should be the sales pitch, no?
    The chair covers can go on upside down after all.

    I think we ALL know what the Chair is really for. To paraphrase the great Sora: “Starts with an F”.

  • http://twitter.com/gabriel_may_uk Gabriel May

    So do you lay on the chair with your stomach facing towards it?

  • http://www.carter4.org/ Nintendo card

    YEAH, it is true, many chairs together in those games.
