Psikyo’s Gunbird Is Back After A Long Hiatus. In Korea That Is.

The last we heard about Gunbird 2 Remix was back in 2010. Back then, PM Studios noted to Siliconera some issues they couldn’t comment on. While we wait on that, there’s now a brand new Korean version called Gunbird S for Kakao on smartphones.

The vertical shoot-em-up is indeed back, with different characters such as Aine and Marion back to play, each with their own endings just like the original series. You can also bring a friend along to make things go a little easier. It also appears you’ll be able to level up the characters, though what for we’re not too sure other than that it makes them stronger.

Gunbird S is out now on iOS and Android, though you’ll also need Kakao to get the game to work.

    I used to have Gunbird 2 for Dreamcast and it was really cool. A lot of the endings are funny.

      Yeah I remember playing this game on the dreamcast. I always use to choose the witch chick that vampire guy and Morrigan ( I think I remembered morrigan from capcom being in this game it’s been a while.)

    Love Gunbird 2 and that we actually got it….

    But it makes me cry we never got a Cotton title.

      We got the first Gunbird, it was just called Mobile Light Force and had a pack of running Charlies Angels style chicks on the front.

      It’s a pretty bastardized version though.

        Very bastardized :P.

            This is actually sounding pretty good now.

    Love gunbird. And i rather would like to see gunbird 3 for arcades where it belongs!

  • Göran Isacson

    I actually own this for the PS2… and MAN is it hard. Funny enough I first got lured in to the game by watching the endings over at VG museum, but when I tried to earn them fair and square, hahahaaa… I need more skills. Doubt that I’d buy this version tho unless it has something the PS2 version didn’t, since I do not think I’d have any more luck here with touch controls than there with an actual controller.

    This game has the best endings.

  • Well, WTF is kakao? Can I install this on my Note 3?

    • SeventhEvening

      It’s a messenger app that is almost exclusively used by Korean people. The game is integrated with that, so you can play the game with any friends of yours who happen to use Kakao.

    Oh look, the rapist from Sengoku Ace is back
