By Ishaan . May 27, 2011 . 5:01pm

Amazon have the $49.99 Otomedius Excellent collector’s edition up for pre-order as well, and they’ve given away what it includes. Under “Product Features,” they mention:


  • Lovely characters to pilot through an expanded world. Choose from nine characters on-disc to battle through 8 all-new stages of thrilling shmup action!
  • Three?s company! Cozy up with a friend or two in local and online multiplayer and team up to obtain hard-to-get items!
  • Eye-popping Gallery mode. View your unlocked stills and graphics in a new Gallery that grows as you progress through the game.
  • Loads of appealing downloadable content. Sure to appeal to both Gradius and Otomedius fans, this content will be announced later!
  • Exclusive Special Edition. Includes 2-sided pillowcase, 64 page artbook and soundtrack disc featuring music from the Otomedius series.


So…a two-sided pillowcase, 64 page artbook and a soundtrack disc. Not too shabby at all. Amazon, like Gamestop, list Otomedius Excellent for a July 19th release.


A deep bow to Corey for the awesome tip!

    Glad to be of assistance!

    So psyched to get into this game, been looking to get into another anime themed shmup since Deathsmiles and this seems like it’ll fit the bill quite nicely!

    Now if only they’d confirm these leaks and show us what the swag looks like!

  • Code

    rar, if only it was confirmed region free, so I could play omo; curse you, reverse regional locking >O>~!

  • “Sure to appeal to both Gradius and Otomedius fans”
    How could there be any Otomedius fans here already? They haven’t released anything yet.

    • I’m a Otomedius fan and I live here. Perhaps there aren’t so many here who have played the game, but no need to be so nit-picky.

  • Darkrise

    Can’t wait! =D Though at first I was hoping for the june 17 rumour to be true so I can get it early but now I know that I have one more month to save up and possibly finish Agarest 0.

    looks awesome :D

    i might buy a 360 just for these games and visual novel games :P

    The LE artbook is nice and all, not to be negative.. but people really shouldn’t get their expectation high for this game.. Gorgeous was pretty bad (it’s one of the few games I resold) and from most reviews Excellent isn’t much better… there are tons of great shmups on the 360 and a lot of them worth importing a system for, but this is not one of them.. even some XBLA titles are a lot more fun than this..

    I dunno.. other than the cute design done by the Sgt Keroro guy, the music, graphics, gameplay are not as good as Gradius or Parodius.. this is really mediocre at best even if you keep an open mind.. If I could, I would just buy the artbook for $20 but not want the game or something… $50 is too much if this is similar to Gorgeous (and I don’t even mind paying $70 for Eschatos or Bullet Soul)

    •  I actually think Gorgeous is an awesome game. Best on the system? clearly not but I enjoy it a bit. More so than some over-hyped titles (cough cough ketsui)

      • Aoshi00

        Gorgeous was a very lazy game in terms of many things, and the general review for Excellent is 2.5 out of 5 stars even worse than Gorgeous, which doesn’t inspire confidence.. no offense, but saying it’s awsome is probably an acquired taste.. it’s really OK at best.. but for $70 it was bad.. probably not as bad as Strike Witches, but still pretty bad..

        Anyway, I’m tired of these less than mediocre games, the premise sounds good  and looks fun w/ the cute girls, but no moe is going to save a bad game.., like Phantom Breaker, which is why they’re releasing a 2nd demo since no one seems to like the first.   Let’s just hope they don’t nickel and dime us w/ DLC like they did Gorgeous.. but they probably will..

        I actually made it a point of buying all shmups for the 360, but Otomedius I just had to sell it… I wish I could’ve some of the bad PSP games I blind bought too…

        I thought Ketsui was fun, not as good as DDP DOJ, but it was fun.. of course I’m not the most skillful shmup player, so I’m not the best person to judge at all..

      • SomeMist

        I thought both were awesome but I enjoy the challenge that ketsui provides a bit more. That’s just my tastes, but I still play both and I’ll be picking this one up.

  • Ladius

    Otomedius Gorgeous may have been a not-so-good shmup, but I’m absolutely ready to support anyone that releases titles such as this in the west, especially with such gorgeous limited editions!

  • i preordered this today. (:
