A while ago Namco Networks released a mobile phone version of Time Crisis where the game divided the tiny cell phone screen to nine squares. Players would press the numeric, 1-9 keys to “shoot” troops in different squares. The mobile phone Wild ARMs game takes the concept and throws in Virginia Maxwell as the main character. You shoot at bats and multiple targets on boss monsters to push them back, sort of like boss fights in the House of the Dead arcade games. This looks like it could be a neat game, but as you might have guessed it is for Japan only.
I wonder when someone will take this concept a step forward with the Wild ARMs series or a brand new property and make a full fledged RPG with light gun battles. This seems like something the Wii could pull off or the Playstation 3 with its brand new Guncon 3.
