News: Vertical shooter makes the wait for Ikaruga a little shorter.
Microsoft has announced that Triggerheart Exelica, a remake of a Japanese vertically-scrolling space shooter, is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow. The game was developed by Warashi and will be available for 800 Microsoft Points.
If Triggerheart Exelica is a bit of a mystery to you (and it is to me), here's a quick rundown of what to expect from Microsoft:
Mankind's newest and best weapon is the Triggerheart, a humanoid weapons system with a human-like personality. When the Ver'mith attack, only the Triggerhearts Exelica and Crueltear have the power to destroy the enemy. In the classic vertically-scrolling Japanese arcade shooter Triggerheart Exelica, each weapon has a different combat style, but both can perform unique anchor shots. Anchor an enemy ship, capture it to use as a shield, or throw it back into the fray to cause massive damage. With five levels, three difficulty settings, and all the usual Xbox Live leaderboards and achievements, Triggerheart Exelica is a fast-paced, full-featured arcade shooter masterpiece!
We'll have more soon.
