Ports of the Raiden Fighters games have had an unusually long production cycle. Actually, none of them ever saw the light of day! Success Corp’s compilation of Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2 and Raiden Fighters Jet isn’t suffering the same fate. Raiden Fighters Aces is slated to come out on March 27 in Japan. The Onslaught Raiden Fighters Special Edition, a 180 minute power play DVD with audio commentary, is also part of the package. Not too bad of a deal for 7,140 yen ($66), but this package is only for Japan or people who happen to own a Japanese/Asian Xbox 360.
However, there is hope for North America! Atlus has a really strong relationship with Success and later this year they will begin publishing Xbox 360 games. I can’t imagine Raiden Fighters Aces requiring too much localization work either… perhaps they will pick it up for North America.
