Radirgy De Gojaru Website Shows Off The Firepower Behind The 3DS eShop Exclusive Blaster

Posted by Kerry Brunskill

Only one week to go before release

Late last year we covered the announcement of Radirgy De Gojaru, a Japanese eShop exclusive shmup which serves as a sequel to the Dreamcast blaster Radirgy. We've now got a bit more information to share with you before the game launches on the 19th of February, courtesy of the game’s incredibly orange official website.

From the looks of things, we'll have two main ways of dealing with oncoming enemy forces: a regular shot attack that can also switch to two different surround-shot patterns to take out enemies to the sides or behind and a short-range sword. There’s also an “absorb net” that apparently functions like a good old-fashioned smart-bomb, which of course by the Secret Shmup Club Rules™ should never be used under any circumstances.

More information on this title, its scoring system and the interesting extras they’re packing in (so far wallpapers and a Karous tie-in have been mentioned) as we get them.

Would you like to see this released worldwide? Are there any other shmups you'd like on your 3DS? Let us know in the comments section below.

Depends how different it is to the one on Milestone Shooting Collection 2. (Which I already bought.)

Looking forward to Steel.Empire 3d classic more I think.

I prefer the Compile type of shmup (I thought Milestone was going to be more like that than they turned out to be) .

Is this coming anywhere besides Japan?

Not a huge fan of the art style but I imagine it's easier to pull off on the 3DS hardware.

This Game looks incredible & at first I was really disappointed that this wasn't coming too the States, but then I realized that it would've probably had crappy controls, IE, forcing us all too only use the touch screen & Right Handed Controls as well.

@Robo-Knight Using 2 sticks makes these type of things too easy. It will be face buttons and circle pad I suspect. (I have played the one on the Wii Jap Ultimate Shooting Collection 2).

For the love of all that is good and holy, SquareEnix PLEASE put Einhander on 3DS.

Have the sega naomi cart and while its just not a very good shmup imho (chain/scoring system is poor) so many other greats that could have been ported, still i suppose its better than nothing, 3ds is seriously lacking some shmup love, wish there was an option to flip the screen though, horizontal your missing half the screen.

@mozie I am just hoping for soldier blade / blazing lasers etc eventually don't think there is much I would like more there is any chance at all of getting.
