OK this might be too much to translate (interview at the bottom). But if you’re curious what Yuzo Koshiro, Rieko Kodama, and sasakure.UK look like, “check out the last photo”:http://www.famitsu.com/images/000/005/879/4eccca00a2e5e.html (that’s them in order, to the right of the samurai cosplayer.
Also there’s Niinou offscreen (why??) and some actual gameplay this time! I had some stuff written up about the video but then I closed the browser window yesterday Oh well, I’ll do it again later. Gameplay looks more Persona and less Dragon Quest by the minute.
Aand finally, the game’s out! Looks like my order is ready to ship ♥
Since I lost my iPod I was, of course, more than happy to open it up.
And of course the first app I purchased was Espgaluda II HD.
It’s actually harder than the iPhone version because you now have to sweep your hand across the screen to move, whereas before it was possible to dodge gigantic swarms of bullets with relatively small movements.
Backgrounds are upscaled, but the sprites are completely redrawn. I’m somewhat indifferent about the new remixed music – honestly I have to confess I enjoyed Hyadain’s remix for Dodonpachi a bit more.
Nevertheless I’m looking forward to more Cave goodness in the near future.
