Thunder Force VI Trailer
Looks like Im getting a Japanese PS2 and 360. At some point. Eventually. Hopefully. Maybe. Probably.
If they arent going to release games like Thunderforce VI, Castle of Shikigami III, Raiden Fighters Aces, DoDonPachi, Ketsui, and Raiden IV outside of Japan what else is a shoot-em-up fanatic to do? Many of the newest arcade shooters arent yet emulated in MAME, and they may never be since Cave and Treasure complained to the MAME developers, who seem to have respected thier wished to leave certain games and arcade hardware un-emulated. Seeing as though people pay $800 for an arcade PCB of Ketsui, paying $325 for an imported 360 and $180 for a Japanese PS2 doesnt seem quite as insane. Almost, but not quite. To battle a giant robot chicken that breathes fire, I think its worth it.
