Before You Read This, Guess How Many Missiles Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury Can Display

By Spencer . April 27, 2011 . 5:53pm

In the Bangai-O games, players have to fly through a myriad of missiles and bullets. By holding one of the triggers, you can reflect shots within a narrow circle near Bangai-O. If you wait for more missiles to close in you can do more damage, but this also puts Bangai-O in danger. The maximum number of projectiles you can send flying back is 1,000, enough to create an Itano Circus, but Treasure’s game can display way more than that.



How many missiles and projectiles can Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury display simultaneously on the Xbox 360? "About 5,000," answered Mitsuru Yaida, Director of Bangai-O HD at Treasure.


Aside from the number of missiles, another difference between Bangai-O Spirits for the Nintendo DS and Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury is you cannot choose what weapons you start the level with; weapons are assigned in the Xbox Live Arcade game. I asked Yaida why the team made the change. "We wanted to emphasize more on the map solving aspect," Yaida replied.


Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury will be available worldwide on May 4. Check back because we’ll have more from Treasure before the game launches on Xbox Live Arcade.

  • HORY SHET! If I were to navigate around THAT many missiles on-screen… I would hate to be the pilot unlucky enough to start the chain reaction of explosions.

      I think that ‘hory shet” was a Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt reference. If so, well done.

    rar, day one >w<;; Although I have to admit, wasn't expecting for 360 to have such a great line up this week omo; I knew I’d be picking up Nin2-HumpJump (haha hilarious typo >w<;), but Trouble Witches Neo; it's so bright and colorful, and full of characters and bullets, co-op play and it's just a nice laid back shmup omo;; I might have to spend my Bangai-O HD points early, and add more next week for Bangai-O HD T_T'

    But, I think the really important question is: Will it make the 360 lag? It would be beautiful if it did.

    • godmars

      Any point in asking why?

      • Exkaiser

        It’s not Bangai-O if there’s no lag.

  • Touhou territory?
    Maybe. Maybe even MORE than Touhou.

    • I was thinking that for a moment, then I invalidated my own question in my head. Touhou can’t hit more than 1000, I’m sure.

      • Now that I think about it I dont think Touhou goes over 1000 bullets on screen either.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    To be honest, until I read 5,000 I wasn’t thinking of over 9000 until just after I read it :( What has become of me…
