Bigger, Badder, Better (And Smaller)

The same game but different

Seems that the highly incongruous KoF: Sky Stage is also (kinda) making its way to the PSP, under the new moniker NeoGeo Heroes Ultimate Shooting:

Different from the KOF-centered Sky Stage, Ultimate Shooting brings together characters from across the Neo Geo spectrum. The magazine lists such classic characters as Akari Ichijou, Marco Rossi, Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, Iroha, Terry Bogard, Mai Shiranui, Athena Asamiya and Kula Diamond.

The game even borrows from the story of World Heroes. Professor Brown Sugar has created a time machine with the purpose of determining who’s the strongest hero across all of time. However, he comes to learn of an organization that hopes to tap the power of these classic heroes for evil purposes, and seals away the time machine. 15 years pass, and that organization, Damudo, steals the time machine and transports back into the past. To combat this, Brown once again assembles the Heroes of Justice and sends them to a variety of time periods that have been modified.

Gameplay looks like Sky Stage on the small screen. You have access to a shot and bomb as standard weapons, and three supers unique to each character. Prior to boss battles, you’re treated to cut scenes where the characters converse.

So it’s, apparently, better than Sky Stage (if by better you mean more which, at least to most Americans, is a resounding “yee-haw!”…Canadians would probably politely clap…sissies) and, even…better (if by better you mean “coming real soon, yee-haw!”) it’s coming in July to import PSPs everywhere.

    I STILL totally miss the point of a shooter with KOF characters. ‘Incongruous’ is a polite way of saying, WTF Japan?!
