Naxat Soft's Recca seems destined for a 3DS eShop release in the west. The game — which is a vertically-scrolling shooter from 1992 — has just been given a rating by the Australian Classification Board.

Also known as Summer Carnival '92: Recca thanks to the fact that it was used in Naxat Soft's "Summer Carnival" shooting game competition, the title is quite rare in its physical form. It's also famous for pushing the Famciom hardware to its limits, filling the screen with sprites and projectiles.

Recca was made available on the Japanese 3DS eShop in December last year. You can check out some footage of the game below — is this is a title you'd be keen to play?
