Otomedius Excellent Shooting Up Xbox 360 This Fall

So, Otomedius Excellent isn’t a localized version of Otomedius Gorgeous. It’s a brand new girls-meets-Gradius game for Xbox 360. Like the home version of Otomedius Gorgeous, Otomedius Excellent has online multiplayer. Three players can link up online and offline – that’s a new feature. Konami created a story mode too, which we hope explains why a Belmont is in the game.

Seriously. There’s a character with the last name Belmont, which is the lineage of vampire hunters from the Castlevania series. Meet Kokoro Belmont!




She’s one of the four new characters in Otomedius Excellent. However, Kokoro Belmont doesn’t come with the game. You have to download her. Arnval, Strarf (both from the Busou Shinki series) and a girl from Gradius Academy are the other three. Famitsu has pictures of them and a couple of screenshots.


While Konami hasn’t said anything about bringing Otomedius Excellent outside of Japan, Gamestop is taking reservations for it and pegs the North American release for September 8.
