In February we wondered if is Konami seriously thinking about localizing Otomedius after discovering a US registered trademark for Otomedius Gorgeous. The answer appears to be yes.
Two tipsters sent an e-mail telling us GameStop is taking reservations for Otomedius Excellent. I followed up by walking into a GameStop and reserving a copy. According to the retailer, Otomedius Excellent is available for Xbox 360 and scheduled to come out on September 8. It’s a full price game at $59.99. We realize retail listings aren’t always accurate and the dates or price may differ, but a game this obscure wouldn’t be appear in a database as an error, would it?
Special thanks and to Hayden and Tim for the heads up.
