That looks great!

I'm going to need myself a big batch of MP points after today.

Looks nice. Characters floating in mid air without jetpacks looks a bit weird though. Is there some story behind that airwalking?

That's quite normal for Japanese shmups. It's also present in another XBLA game announced recently, Shikigami no Shiro 3.

Anyway, I watched some gameplay videos on IGN and I must say I'm very pleasantly surprised. Seems like it will be a proper hard core shmup, and a very beautiful one at that. I didn't get that impression when I first saw it in motion a few months ago.

The floating characters is less weird than the character (not present in these screens) who brings his dog along for the action. ;-) Just assume it's magic or something, I guess.

I feel there is something flawed about the size of everything.. I guess movement won't be a big factor.. I'll definitely download the demo first.

It depends on the size of hitboxes.

Looks like Side Arms for Turbo Grafx 16 from back in the day... I will test it and if good... buy it!
