Shmups Come to Dsiware Japan, Rest of World Sheds Bitter Tears


If you were smart fortunate enough to have picked up a Japanese DSi, you’re going to want to check this out: Aa Mujou Setsuna, a bullet-hell style vertical shmup available on the serious cheap: 500 Nintendo points. That’s five bucks, less than most gutbuster combo meals, and they’re lacking two things this game has: serious quality and an even more serious developer.

So who’s behind it? Arika, makers of a wide variety of popular games–games often known for innovation and killer music. The other name on the label? Nintendo. That means those of us who don’t have a convenient Japanese DSi to get around those pesky region locks may be able to take heart and hope for a localization.

The shmup is available this week and, I hope, will herald a new age of killer DSiWare games for people who like to die brutally and often in games.

    Gah Nintendo you used to be cool with all your No region lock based Software

    And you also decided not to make Tingles rosy ruppee land for America
