Treasure's bullet hell shooter Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury
finally has a release date, scheduled to hit the Xbox Live Arcade on May 4th.
The game is described as an "insanely addictive arcade shooter," combining puzzle elements with classic arcade shmup action over 100+ levels. It's an update to the Dreamcast game, adding a new Level Editor Tool and online co-op, as well as a brand new combo system allowing "direct target hits to be strung together to create destructive combos, increasing the player’s devastating multi-directional counter attack and giving them an ultimate, explosive advantage."
It's a hard game to describe, and words can never fully do it justice, so here instead is two recent trailers for the game (the second of which is a montage of the game's weaponry):
To experience that insane sensory overload for yourself will cost 800 MSP.
