Ah, Shootanto, the campy WiiWare game that had players shoot dinosaurs as an evolving monkey is getting a sequel. However, Grand Prix threw out all of the cheesy elements that made Shootanto memorable. Instead of blasting lizardmen in the middle ages or T-rexes in Prehistory you’re thrown into World War II fighting generic looking soldiers.




Shootanto: Miraihen (Shootanto: Future Chapter) is likely to be forgotten unless there is a secret stage where the main character morphs into a robot and shoots robotic lizards. Conversely, this game in the Shootanto series (I still can’t believe this is a series) has a better chance of being localized since it’s setting has been used so much. If you have a Japanese Wii handy you can pick up Shootanto: Miraihen for 600 Wii Points ($6) sometime between February and March.
