Senko no Ronde Duo isn’t exactly a shooter or a fighting game, it’s a mix of both. G.Rev’s game has players whittle down an opponent’s life bar with waves of bullets while weaving through enemy fire.
But, what if you just want to play Senko no Ronde Duo for the story? There’s sort of a way to do that. G.Rev created Command Mode for the console version of Senko no Ronde Duo. Pick this mode to play as the partner character which gives commands to the character in the heat of battle. Players can also make the partner cheer the fighting character. Story is an important element in Senko no Ronde Duo, sub-story expansions will be sold as downloadable content.
Command Mode can be used when playing online too. G. Rev says the Xbox Live network mode also supports replay uploading and downloading just like many popular fighting games.
Senko no Ronde Duo is dated for April 28 and so far it has only been announced for Japan. Ubisoft published the previous game in North America and Europe.
