Here's another game for Nintendo's future online service WiiWare - Star Soldier R, a vertichal shmup which appeared on many consoles in the past (Star Soldier (NES), Super Star Solider (TG16) et Soldier Blade (TG16)). No release date is available, but we have images for you right after the jump.
Overview: Star Soldier R roars in from Japan to test your shooter skills! Go for the high score in 2-Minute or 5-Minute Modes or see if you have the fastest trigger finger in Quick Shot Mode! Then go online and see if your scores are the best in your region. There’s even an all-new Force System: collect up to five orbiting satellites that can be held close to the ship for defensive cover or can be sent out for additional firepower. Use the controls style that suits you best: Nunchuk + Wii Remote, Wii Remote only (held sideways), or Classic Controller.
● Tournament Style – Flying in straight from Japan, this tournament-style shooter tests your skills with three different game modes. Go for the highest score possible in either 2-Minute or 5-Minute Modes or see if you’ve got the fastest trigger finger in Quick Shot Mode.
● Online Leaderboards – Go online and see if your scores are the best in the world, your country, or your region. If not, keep practicing until they are!
● All-New Force System - Collect power-ups to increase your Force (orbiting satellites) up to five. They can be held close to the ship to provide defensive cover or can be sent out to provide additional firepower.
● Three Control Schemes – Use the style that suits you best: Nunchuk + Wii Remote, Wii Remote only (held sideways), or Classic Controller.
the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
