Warning! A ‘New’ PSP Game Approaches!
Yeah, it’s pretty–pretty awesome!
It seems that Darius1 Burst is getting a North American release after all, quoth the ESRB:
This is an arcade-style space shooter in which players control a small craft that shoots projectiles and lasers at enemy ships, missiles, turrets, and robots. From a side-scrolling perspective, players navigate through outer space while shooting at the numerous enemy units. Ships, objects, and enemies explode when hit, sometimes with realistic or slow-motion effects.
This also means that I’ll have to actually finish the half-written review I started when the import came out lo those many ages ago. Dammit.
1 No relation to pop-cum-country singers or the emperiors of the Achaemenid dynasty, though all three–shooter, singer and emperor–could make for one hell of a shmup if you mashed ’em up. (And it’d still be only half as weird as Cho Aniki2.)
2 And, yes, Wanderer, the review of that (on PSP) is also still half-finished. Dammit.
