We Kinda Forgot About Bullet Hell Soldner-X 2’s Expansion… Until Now

By Eugene . June 21, 2014 . 12:31pm


With so much stuff going on, it’s often usual for stuff to slip by us. Some of it gets re-discovered when we’re looking through the archives hunting for more information.


One of these is this: Check out Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype – The Last Chapter.

This shoot-em-up for the PlayStation 3 was pretty excellent for its time (a whole four years ago!) and we noted that the final expansion pack, The Last Chapter, would be coming. And then… err… oops? The expansion added three additional stages, with an extra secret one as well.



As far as bullet hells go, Soldner-X was great, with some really tough patterns and cool effects.

If there’s anything else you think we should give a shout out to that we missed, let me hear it! Every now and then, we’ll be trawling for old gems to talk about, so send in your tips or leave us a comment.


Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype – The Last Chapter is available on the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3.

    Are you sure this is the last chapter? It doesn’t seem quite final enough. We’d better make sure.

          Can we stop this? It’s off-topic, not needed, and is borderline console waring.

            he’s a troll who likes to take action in every thread about a shmup

          • TheHolypopeofgaming

            I’ll behave if everyone else does

            That’s not really the approbate attitude to have. Please just follow the rules and remember to be respectful to others.
