Will it ever be released outside of Japan, though?

More than likely, looks like an XBL game.

360 is getting some really good shoot em ups lately :D

It's not a XBL game, at least in Japan.

Music is really good though :P

You can't just take a shmup and make it widescreen without making it an entirely different game. These games aren't even 4:3, and yet, there were plenty released at retail last generation for PS2 (in Japan). It's a shame that only a handful of those releases made it west.

I read it was a budget release on disk all over the hell?
Three games of bliss on a disk, can't beat that action.

It would make little difference to the games mechanics in reality. (you would just have a wider area to shoot in and more enemies on screen)

Obviously you are a purist in that respect, but I would sooner see a proper remake with HD sprites.

Also how do you know it would make the game entirely different ? when its never been done, the reason being is that these devs are too lazy and want a quick Yen/buck.

All it would take is a new background and a wider area for sprites to move in, the game would remain the same.
