Hori to release touch screen-enabled arcade stick for Otomedius

Destructoid writes: "The game looks to be a delicious shmup experience, combining the same style of mecha musume character design found in games like Triggerheart Exelica with gameplay and level design reminiscent of Konami's hilarious (and hard) classic cute-em-up, Parodius. Why would that make me sad, you ask? Well, it's slated for release on Xbox 360 in Japan this September, and Konami has yet to breathe a word of it ever coming out anywhere else.

That sucks especially hard when you hear that Hori is releasing a sexy new arcade stick, designed specifically for use with Otomedius. Harder still? The thing has a goddamn touch screen on it, just like the original arcade version. I want one. We all want one. Purchase of this beauty will also score you a bundled-in copy of the 360 game itself, as well as six character badges, whatever the hell that means."

nothing will.

Looks a bit too cutsy for me but Im sure a lot of 360 owners out here will pat through the nose ta import it.

Wonder if it will stay a 360 exclusive if it does I'd love to know what the deal was worth.
